Crepe paper flowers

Crepe paper is another easy to use paper that can be used to make a lot of origami flowers. I made few for my vase. :)


The whole bunch before I could arrange them. :)




A closer look at my favorite ones. :)






Crepe roses

I just found an online tutorial for making these crepe roses. Do take a look and happy making.
The other flowers in this bunch were my own creation, hence I have to make a tutorial on my own and post it here. So kindly give me some time to present it to you.



I am happy to send this to the Arsty-Craftsy event.

Tissue Flowers

Tissue paper is the most convenient paper to make flowers since it is really flexible. I used toilet tissues to make these. :)



A very photography look of the flowers :)




Used white and yellow tissues for making these sweet ones. :)





Summer is for the flowers too.. :)





This is a little different version of the previous one. :)


Check out for the tutorial here.

Cookie paper flowers

These are waste paper made into pretty flowers.

As you all know muffins and cookies come with a butter paper below it packed neatly.. This paper is the one that I have used here to make these flowers. :)

This is my try of the idea inspired from my cousin Pavithra. :)

Paper art is my latest craze. :)

This one is a mere inspirational work from a great creator. Sorry i really don't know the origin though.

Bag It


Bag it was a contest again at college.


They gave me 1 meter cloth, 1 day to stitch bags to my taste, 1 hour on spot to design the bags. :)

This was my outcome.



I stitched totally 6 bags in the given 1 meter cloth.




One hand bag that i stitched with the given material. Decorated it with kundhan stones and 3d designer outlining.




Mobile pouch, a accessory pouch and a wallet all having matching patterns with kundhan stones and 3d outliner designing.




A stylish college back bag.

The topic for designing was Nakshtra(zodiac). So I used just two colors the black(sky) and white(stars) to design it.

Creative Kolam

I did this for a contest at college. A creative kolam on glass. I used the beetle leaves, agarbathi, turmeric and beetle nut for designing the peacock feathers. :)



Tanjore Art

Tanjore art is one of the most traditional art form of South India. This needs a lot of dedication, time and cost.

The paintings are notable for their adornment in the form of semi-precious stones, pearls, glass pieces and gold. The rich vibrant colors, dashes of gold, semi-precious stones and fine artistic work are characteristics of these paintings. They add beauty and culture to a variety of surroundings and d├ęcor. The paintings are mostly of Gods and Goddesses.


This is Ashtabuja Ganapathi(Eight hands) that I tried.

Water color and Oil pastels Art

Water colors are the first kind of paints anyone would have used. My school introduced those tablet shaped water based paints to me when I was in 2nd grade. :) I still love to use them.. they are fun and easy to work with. :)

Special Occations Kolam

I have a lot of passion for drawing and so for kolam too.

I always feel nothing should limit out creativity, and the same implies for kolam for me. I generally don't prefer to draw between dots. Free hand is my style. :)
