Leafy Ring Dishes | Art Elements

I almost don't remember when I last played in the monthly challenges hosted by the Art Elements team. Challenge host for this month, Caroline, chose the theme Foliage, and I was sure I wouldn't find much time for creativity this month either. Then somehow, in the eleventh hour, I did find an opportunity to play… Continue reading Leafy Ring Dishes | Art Elements

A Shadowbox Begins

Wow, did this month fly by or what! It feels like only yesterday that I thought the Art Elements theme of the month, Repurposing, was perfect for a project that I'd been thinking of, and it's already reveal time. Many thanks to Lesley Watt for hosting this theme, since it turned out to be the… Continue reading A Shadowbox Begins

Jewelry/Trinket Box | Inspiration Station

It might seem like my sister and I have forgotten about our Inspiration Station challenges, but that's definitely not the case. It's only that March got a bit lighter on the crafty side (because life!) and I just couldn't work on any challenges. Not to fret, we've both managed to finish our respective artistic projects… Continue reading Jewelry/Trinket Box | Inspiration Station

Storage Bag Tags

Even the tiniest amount of crafty time can result in a positive feeling. Case in point - A trio of tags that I made for keeping track of storage bags in our attic. These storage bags contain similar items but are only used occasionally, and the tags would be handy to figure out which one… Continue reading Storage Bag Tags

Inspiration Station: Cosmetics Holder

My sister and I collectively work on quite a few arts and crafts, and we thought we'd try out a theme-inspired creativity session between us once in a while - our 'Inspiration Station' - one of us picks a theme, and each of us makes something inspired by the theme in any media we fancy.… Continue reading Inspiration Station: Cosmetics Holder

Image Transfer: Coasters

I've not participated in challenges lately due to my creativity having become sluggish, but this month's theme at Art Elements - Stars by Laney Mead, brought forth some tiny sparks in my right brain. 🙂 By the time I thought of joining, I'd already created some Diwali gel prints using the only stencil in our… Continue reading Image Transfer: Coasters

Diwali Gel Prints

Our Diwali consists of hanging paper lanterns and lighting lamps, and we continue with the lanterns for 12 days until another festival, Tulasi Pooja. This festival has us worshiping the sacred Tulasi plant. Following this, the lanterns finally come down, and go into the attic until next year. 🙂 I made some gel prints to… Continue reading Diwali Gel Prints

Table Makeover

My break from jewelry making continues, and I thought I could spruce up my work table while I'm not using it to work on jewelry. The front of this table's drawers were white earlier, and though I didn't really dislike that, some color would definitely make the table cheerier to look at. My sister has… Continue reading Table Makeover

Something New…

I've been seeing a dip in my creative mojo as far as my usual pursuits are concerned. Instead of trying to channel energy into forced jewelry making, I tried out random new things - not really jewelry-related - for a creativity lift. One was some basic weaving, and the other, gel printing (or mono printing… Continue reading Something New…

Stitch Marker Case | Art Elements Challenge

The team at Art Elements hosts themed monthly challenges, which involve a reveal and blog hop at the end of the month. The theme for June is Sunflowers, picked by Sue. I read the theme announcement, and recalled this small, cubic container that I've appropriated for storing my stitch markers. I've always wanted to decorate… Continue reading Stitch Marker Case | Art Elements Challenge
