Madhubani Mini Krishna

Standard

This small 4 x 4″ Krishna with his Peacock was inspired by Madhubani Art, and my experimentation with Zentangle & Henna.

Engagement Cards :)

Standard

This past week, I got engaged! Though I didn’t plan the event, I got to pick out decorations, design invitations, arrange for hand designed table numbers, and wrap return gifts. Basically, all the fun stuff!

I drew a motif using my .3 mm Stabilo Pen, converted it into a Vector Image, and used that as the theme for this event. The casual mehendi invite to my immediate family had the image in mehendi-green followed by text. The bridesmaid invite in rich purple (Top Right) included a cheesy poem, and were personalized for each bridesmaid. The engagement e-vite was in a deep maroon (Bottom Left), and the Thank You Cards (Top Left) were in a rustic orange. The maroon and orange matched the decorations at the hall, and those colours were also used for the beautiful number signs for the table decor.

The event was a lot of fun, and it was touching to have family all over the world come to celebrate with us! Stay tuned for several wedding related DIY projects :)

Wedding & Henna Party!

image (2)One of my old friends from University got married today, and it seemed like a great excuse to have our own henna party! I used MDG henna powder and cellophane wrap to make cones. It was my first time making henna cones, and once I got the consistency of henna right, it worked out pretty well! A lot better than the air/water filled cones at our local Indian store :)

The wedding was absolutely beautiful, and I wish them an amazing life together :)
