MAKE YOUR OWN CUSTOMIZED COLOUR PAPER

You can customized your paper with your own choice of colours and make some very personal
thinks like these gift bags



Today I am here with my an old post of
How to give texture and colour to simple white Canson Sheet...



All these sheets are the result of hand work ... Colours and texture what you want ...

Colour plays a very significant and pivotal role in our daily life

 Someone says,
 " Life is like a rainbow, you need both the sun and the rain ,
 to make it colours appear "

Today I want to play with colours and have fun like the kids of  school age...
Do you want to be a child once again ???
O come with me and lets have some fun ...
For me its so satisfying that my hands are in colours and
every time a new unknown result appear on the paper ...


You have lots and lots of options for those customized paper ... cards, wrapping gift papers,
book marks, envelops and so much more ...

Now I am telling you what you will need for this fun project



A Canson oil paint sheet...
Oil colours of your desired shades ...
Turpantine oil
Some tissue paper and gauze ...
Plastic sheet for lying on the working area ...


 Now lay your sheet smoothly on your hard working surface like table top ...
Squeeze oil paints directly from the tube on the paper like shown above ...
The choice of colour is yours but I used yellow, brown, ocher brown and green ...



Now spray turpentine oil on the sheet , just soak it completely in the oil ...

With the help of gauze start spreading the colours on the sheet,
What texture you wants , its totally up to you, on this sheet I spread the colours in upside down direction...


here you can clearly see how the colours spread...
A little touch of brown and green with a cheerfull yellow makes it so cheery ... put aside for drying atleast for 4 hours ...

A marble effect paper with the same technique of spreading colours in upward and down word motion...

Ok another one with a different colours and with different direction of spreadin colours ...

For this I used  yellow white, purple and shocking pink colours...
Here I merged the colours in a circular 
motion...

Make round and round circle and spread the colours on complete sheet ...


Now you can see a totally different texture appeared with this circular spreading motion...
Leae it to dry...

Another example of swirl spreading...

 AHHHAAA  DANA DONE ...
my different experimental papers... believe me if you love to play with colours
you will love it, every end result make your heart sings...

 You can give your personal heart ...LOLz
There are lots and lots of possibilities with this fun paper project ...
I would love and appreciate if you share what you have in your mind ....

Hope you enjoyed and tried to have some like this... If you like it please let me know
Any question or querry is always welcome and I would reply you ASAP ...

Have a nice weekend ahead ...

LOVE COLOURING

DREAM KITCHEN

Hello every body, hope doing fine ...
It is bit late post but I am so busy nowadays that it appears difficult to
menage things... And plus the hot weather ...

Today I am going to share some pictures which I collected from different sites about
 KITCHENS ... I am sure most of us want a beautiful and well managed kitchen...

Here I show you some little things which has big impact on the versatility of your kitchen...

I love the citrus colour of this kitchen, what a sunny and fresh look it has ...

My second love the back splash of this kitchen ... the colour design is so perfect ...
Don't you love the little kettle on the hob..I do ...

Now come to the shelving and storage part of the kitchen...
Cabinet door are inspirational... so neat and manageable your pantry cupboard with be
with only one like this in your kitchen ...

What a clever idea to have a cabinet only for your gadgetry. just ope the door, work with that 
and no hustle bustle ...It can be like shelves too, open with no doors... but its a great Idea...

Corners are always a confusion for cabinetry but this corner cabinet with double sided sliding 
door is such a smart way to fully utilize your cabinet ... your inner boards can be revolving too
for an easy access ...

It is the simplest way to protect your kitchen rolls from kids and extra use..LOLz... 
For further alteration you can use a complete drawer for cling film roll, kitchen foil and
this tissue roll...

Nothing can be so perfect like this (its my opinion only haha ) Oh I really love this idea for 
trays, baking trays and Rice dishes... it is so easy to menage if you have a cabinet like this...


The best and cleanest way to store your fresh veges like onion, potatoes etc etc with this ...

Don't you love the smart idea of this sliding cutlery drawer...

And lastly these beautiful and quite vintage style stools ...

Hope you like the tour with me and may be there is something 
which helps you in your beautiful kitchen ... If so than please let me know what inspires you ...
Wish you all a happy weekend

HAPPY KITCHENING

DOUBLE SIDED PILLOW CASE

Hello everybody and thank you very much for your love and concerns about my
100th post... I am really thankful o all of you from my heart  ...

So what to share today ... last week I stitched a bed sheet for my daughter's room
which was pending from last 6 months... Surprised  LOLz...
( I told you I am a lazy person :P ) ...
And unfortunately the fabric of pillow cover is bit less than that I required,
Its again a hurdle ... What to do?????
I start planning to how can I menage it because I can't get the same fabric after 6 months...
So I decide to make a double sided pillow cover and for a girlish touch add some ribbons too...
