Hi all. It’s been a long time that I had posted something here. I have an announcement to make – ‘I’m expecting a baby’. Yes !! That kept me tired for the last few months. I was busy planning, preparing check lists and all. So I couldn’t create anything for sometime.However, I got a chance to work on something colourful, creative and challenging for a couple of weeks. We had to plan for a gender neutral baby shower decor and I obviously insisted that the decor be DIY. Today I want to share with you the floral backdrop that I had made for my baby shower.
Below is the whole setting which is about 12 feet wide and 5 feet high.

I knew I wanted a floral back drop which is quite bright in color, since there were several restrictions to not tape anything on the walls at the function hall and only hooks which were already present could be used to hang any decor. Also the main wall had 3 large windows over which inevitably should be part of the backdrop.

- Keep a track of all the growing stash and maintain a reference of the following

Hi all. Colour swatches are a must have for an artist. You do not want to pull out all the stamp pads and keep trying all the shades and tones of a colour, until you find the desired colour for your project. Labels on the stamp pads can be deceiving at times, as the actual ink on paper may actually turn out to be dark or lighter than the label on stamp pad.
One way to get a colour swatch is to download and print those that the manufacturers sell. But again, you do not want to buy all the swatches from all the manufacturers, though you may own only half of all those colours. Also these colour swatches keep getting updated with time.
So I created by own colour swatch to address all the above issues. A simple but very functional cute little swatch.

I only have this 2 X 2″ photo of my nephew Abhiram. This little darling was safe in my wallet and that’s how I have it with me here. I couldn’t stop myself from making this little photo holder.
Abhi looks too innocent in this picture though he isn’t really as innocent.
I miss you Abhi.
