Rainbow colours

Hello folks,

This month’s theme in IQCG is “Rainbow Colours”.

The beauty of the rainbow in the sky, especially after the rain provides immense joy to everyone with its warmth of unity amongst the colours.

The radiance from the colours Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red enhance the beauty of any artefact that we create.

Here goes my ‘Design Team’ project.

“Weaved rainbow coloured paper earring”

I used multi coloured 5mm strips and weaved together to create this beautiful earring.

The earring is light weight, water-proof coated with dimensional magic.

This quilled canvas is a mark of appreciation to women who have been the reason for our birth, growth, success and survival on planet earth.
As the saying goes, Beauty is only skin deep – so respect and love women for who they are and not for how they look.
True unbiased affection, respecting her for who she is and nurturing her as needed are key to capturing her heart. Jewellery can help win her heart too 🙂 Jewellery be it any material attracts women’s attention next to cloth shopping.

Some inspiring quotes on love from

“It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start.”

“Love is not love, which alters when it alteration finds,

Or bends with the remover to remove.

Oh, no! it is an ever-fixed mark

That looks on tempests.. and is never shaken. ”

Hope to meet you all every month with my inspiring creations.

Share your thoughts..

With love,

Sriranjini

 

 

 

Butterfly, the flying flower

The English poet William Wordsworth (1770-1850) wrote at least two poems titled “The Butterfly.” In one of these, which begins with the line “I’ve watched you now a full half-hour,” the speaker describes his contemplation of a butterfly that sits quietly on a yellow flower in a garden. The speaker welcomes the butterfly as a reminder of his joyous youth.

The above quilled art reminds me of that poem. Here are a few lines from the poem.

          I've watched you now a full half-hour;
          Self-poised upon that yellow flower
          And, little Butterfly! indeed
          I know not if you sleep or feed.
          How motionless!--not frozen seas
          More motionless! and then
          What joy awaits you, when the breeze
          Hath found you out among the trees,
          And calls you forth again!

Quilled Fusion Earring (Jhumka)

Jhumkas and silk sarees are traditional South Indian attire for weddings and grand occasions. The Jhumka is quilled into domes and attached using beads and danglers. The crystals and the flower shaped beads are chosen based on the color of the dress and user preference. These earrings are very lightweight and waterproof.

I have put together instructables for this at http://www.instructables.com/id/Quilled-Fusion-Earring-Jhumka/

 

Happy Quilling 🙂
