Hand Painted Diwali Diya Part I

Diwali is one of the biggest festival of Hindus & it is celebrated with great enthusiasm and happiness. Diwali is popularly known as the "festival of lights". It involves the lighting of small clay lamps ( Diya in Hindi ) filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil. This year Diwali is on 26th of October and everyone is busy in its preperation.... I bought some plain clay diyas and painted them with different colours and then decorated them with stones and glitter powder. Hope you all like them....

My First Quilled Creation

This quilled art on Crafts, Kids, Quilling  inspired my creativity to design an identical copy of it . The diversity of bright colours in it with varied designs is mesmerizing. The details of grass, leaves and flowers are extraordinary. 

Its my first quilled art. I have used 5mm and 3mm wide stripes for this project.
