Photo Oriented Anniversary Album !

So I had the chance of making this big 12X12 scrapbook for a couple who were completing their 10 years of togetherness. Oh well, what better way to celebrate than to flip through the pages of a beautiful scrapbook, looking at all the photos(old & new) and re-living the treasured moments :)

This 10 page album has lots of photos, and by lots I mean more than 100(hence photo-oriented :)) so I had to really push my brain to think of ways to add more photos while not adding more pages. Interactive elements saved my life and the book turned out to be awesome :)

Here is the cover


  

The fabric beneath the photo was upcycled from an old dress and I love the feel it gives to the cover. The photo was then stitched down on the fabric using some simple hand stitches on the corners.


Entering this for LESSology: Challenge#25 - For the love of fabric and Shahrul's Challenge to stitch at Yvonne's blog Do More With Less

Have a good week ahead my friends!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 


Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching


Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

Added a little hand-stitching along the edges, embellished each tag with lot of elementary stickers from different Echo Park Collection and had the most fun writing those 10 things about DH. It made me fell so ble…

A year in review 2016 + Giveaway!

Hello,

As we step into the new year, I wanted to take a moment and reflect upon this past year which has been mostly amazing for me. 2016 was tremendous for me in terms of both professional and personal life. Yes, there were moments and events that I would not never like to experience again but today I just wanted to focus on the good and happy.

So today I am going to highlight my favourite projects and moments throughout this year. I also have a giveaway for you guys as a thank you for always being so supportive and appreciative. You always motivate me to do better and more.




I started year 2016 with this close-to-my-heart watercolor piece. This artwork is special because this was the first of the many! I fell in love with using stamps to build watercolor scenes and kept making them throughout the year.


This photo of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco has so many lovely memories from our big family vacation this year. It was fun converting it into a watercolor piece. Also this …
