A couple of weeks back I was in for a pleasant surprise, I got a mail from a lady (Sonal) mentioning that she had seen a few of my cards and liked them a lot. She wanted me to teach some techniques to her, her teen aged daughter and one of her friends, I was a bit apprehensive but agreed nonetheless. And I am so glad that I did! I put together a few card making supplies into a small kit and gave to each student.It was a great experience, the kids were amazingly talented, I learnt a thing or too from them too. Sonal herself is an accomplished artist, she does beautiful glass and warli paintings, warli is a tribal Indian form of painting. Here are a few of her creations;you can view more of her work here. Overall the cardmaking workshop was a rewarding experience for all of us and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I also went shopping last week, I had gone to a toy store to get some toys for my nephew and guess what I found there chipboard alphabets!!!! I had never seen them in Bangalore before, so obviously I’m soooooooo excited!!!I also bought some 3-D flower stickers.Now finally to this week’s Card Patterns sketch. Here is my take on it.A good friend of mine, Krishnan, is a very tough critic of my cards. According to him I almost always make floral cards and that I should try out different types of cards, though I never accept it I know its kinda true . So this time I made a non-floral card.......Do check out the Card Patterns blog for some great takes on this week’s sketch by the DT.
