Rangoli


Hello Friends ... I wish you all Happy Pongal..

Pongal is the most popular harvest festival of Tamilnadu. Pongal comes in mid-January every year and marks the beginning of Uttarayan, the Sun's movement northward for a six month period. Celebrations include painting entire house, drawing of kolam, cooking of delicious pongal....

Now you can guess what my part here is....?!? Of course I have started 2 draw kolam yesterday night itself. One with paint in pooja room, one with sunnambu(lime stone) paste in front door and another one with colour powders at front gate. Kolams are believed to bring prosperity to homes and not only meant for decoration purpose. So I love to draw kolam's especially rangoli. Because, I am not good in dotted kolam.

But the Celtic knot design(yellow paint), I have made with the help of dots, because the measurements should be equal in all lines. I got the Celtic Design from the link below


and did some changes.

Glass Paint on Plastic Sheet


        This post is to wish all my friends, a prosperous and delightful 2012… I hope all your dreams come true on this New Year.

            I did the glass paint on plastic sheet also known as OHP sheet. We can see this picture while enter in my room. I just painted using old waste glass liner and glass colors which I don’t want to throw out. So it wasn't results smooth lines.  So I didn't frame this picture rather just pasted on wall with cello tape. This background looks more cute than foil know…..?  

           Maybe adding some elements would make it more attractive. Yeah I mentioned about the butterfly which is made by stocking/Nylon material. This might be the next post.
