Mixed Media Art Journal - Be kind, Be You | How body shaming affected me | Video Tutorial

Since so many of you requested for mixed media video tutorials, I decided to finally start the Mixed Media Art Journal Series, that I had been procrastinating for a really long time. This art journal is all about my thoughts, feeling, my blessings, my hardships, the things I believe in and some of my life stories. I hope you enjoy watching these. 

This story is about "Body Shaming" which I had to go through as a child and as an adult and even now it hasn't stopped completely. I know so many of us go through some form of body shaming at some stage in life and this is my attempt to connect with you and let you know that you are not alone.

Watch the video here

Don't forget to let me know what you think of the series. If you would like to hear more of my life stories or if you would rather just like the music :)

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.

Birthday Explosion Box!

Here is something that I am very proud of. This was my first attempt at a 3D paper cake and I adore how it turned out. More loved because I am not really a pink girl and this explosion is all pink and I still love it :)
