Tuesday Tea and Art


Hello to Elizabeth  and all my dear friends at T stands for Tuesday. Here is my evening cup of green tea and art. 
I did this girl using a mix of art supplies. The background  is collaged with pattern and text book paper. I then used couple of stencils that I had and acrylic paint and white texture medium.
The girl's face was painted and shaded using watercolor pencils and acrylics. Did her hair band using the texture medium and some lovely glitter. 
I love the final result but still I feel  her features didn't come out that well. 

A close up of my girl.

The next couple of weeks are going to be super busy for me. We are getting ready to fly back home-:) I hope to post and visit you all in between or else will be back in JuNE.  Do keep us in your prayers. 
Today my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Nepal. Even in some parts of India the tremors were felt.
Hope you all have a lovely week
Hugs

Fabric...


The DLP challenge for May 2nd was to use Fabric in our journal page. 

The fabric that I have added here is on her dress. I used a gold ribbon for the top part and the frill. The red is part of a wedding invitation card-:) The black stem of the flower is also a fabric material. The rest of the page was created using acrylic and watercolor paints, more doodling and some collage work. 
Here is a close up of my girl.
As each weeks pass, I guess I care less about perfection and more on enjoying the process and stretching my imagination to come up with something unique. 
I am so Thankful to art to the 5th team members for the Documented Life Project as I feel I am gradually evolving an artistic style of my own-:)

Have a great weekend

Spring Sketch


Happy Tuesday-:) Doesn't this pretty dress bring out the beauty of Spring? 
This is from a workshop by Laurie May, named  Dresses on a Clothesline. I have two more projects to complete from this class.  
Laurie's classes are so affordable and if you are interested here is the link.

Welcome May

 Week-17 Inks 

The challenge was to use inks of different colors. As I am currently here in  my hometown I didn't have any in my stock. So, I used diluted water colors to create the first background layer. Next, I added acrylics. It has been a while since I have created a face so I did this cute girl on hand made paper. I added silver glitter to her dress and also gave her some silver jewelry. Love the sparkle.

We have started with the fifth month of this year.As one quarter is over, I wanted to remind myself of some of the goals that I had along with my two words of the year. I added one word reminders on each circles on the page.

T for Tree art

Hello dear Elizabeth and all my Tea friends. I am sharing my bottle of plain water and my tree art today.
That's my older son on the right, busy with his sketching. I am so Thankful for the love of art that we share with each other.
This is a project that I am planning to teach some little art lovers here. I am so happy to have received such an opportunity.
Will share more on this later-:)

Of course, these paintings are based on the seasons. I thoroughly enjoyed creating them and I hope the kids too will love it.


One more thing I wanted to share with you is on how I was suffering from  a bad back last week and from there I took a leap of faith and joined a yoga class here. It was something that  I always wanted to learn but I never had the courage to start. Guess, this was the right time! 
This was one of the best choices that I had made recently and within three days my back was completely cured. 
I highly recommend  it. Yoga is good for both the mind and body and I hope to continue with it in future.
Being consistent with my choices is the biggest  challenge that I always face. Are you consistent with your passions in life?What motivates you  to keep going?

Happy Tuesday
