Something Musical

Music is something very close to my heart. I'm sure many of my blogging friends share this sentiment. I have been taking music lessons since I was three, and constantly listening to music since even before! I think music is THE most pure, clear and abstract form of expression human beings are capable of. In my home, I'm always singing, totally oblivious to my parents or neighbours, while studying, crafting, bathing(of course! the bathroom makes your voice sound so magical!) and obviously during my practice sessions. I learn Indian classical music, which I think can have no equal simply because of its IMMENSE potential and scope.
Yeah, I know what you're thinking. This is a CRAFT blog and not a place to air my opinion of random things. So here's the card for today...

First of all, I would like to wish all my blogland friends Shuvo Noboborsho(Happy New Year). Because today is Poila Baishakh(or the first day of the year) for us Bengalis.
To celebrate the another year of crafting and creating, I've attempted quillography for the second time, a wall art. My first was this quilled monogram. This time, I enjoyed the process so much! Here it is, without further ado.

This is dedicated to all of US, all of us wonderful ladies who create regularly, stretch their own limits and support each other so dedicatedly. When I first started blogging, I never did realise that there was such a world of like minded individuals ever ready to share feedback and all their lovely creations. So, I think, we deserve a huge round of APPLAUSE, all of US!!!

Its Cloudy Now

Yes, I know. I'm posting the second time today! I thought I would blog about this card tomorrow, but here I am!
Ok, so this card is for CASology 90, and the cue word is : WET. India is the land of the monsoon, so of course, I had to think about rain...

With Love...

With my brother currently staying with us(he stays in Bangalore) I am finding that I spend all my time hanging out with him! There is no time for crafting... but yesterday I made up my mind to make a card, and so here it is today.
For this card I tried to make paper roses. Now I have made origami roses before, and fairly complicated ones, but the most realistic ones can be made only with cutting or punching. So I searched for tutorials... but drew a blank : either they were too difficult, too ugly(!) or made use of punches. Finally came across a Pin(origin forgotten :p) and adapted it to make my first paper rose...

Its Summer Again!

My exams ended. At last. I am free!!!
Yay for reading, crafting, music and lazing about! Summer's here! It's very, very hot already, but still I'm lovin' it!
I appropriately kick-started with a summer themed card, inspired from Lulupu Challenge#28. I used both the shades of pink, orange, yellow. Actually all sorts of colours can be found on the hat!
