Life was like a box of chocolates - Photo illustration

"Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."
A beautiful quote from one of my favorite movie, Forrest Gump.

Of course this is not what this illustration really says.I was just playing around in paint brush, and did this.
In my defense, Enn was an equal participant in finishing this box of yummy truffles.

Awesome commercials

Aww I am in awe these uber cute commercials.
Both these TV commercials are for Amazon Kindle...and whenever these come , I literally stop what I am doing, and stand in front of the TV and sing and dance like a little girl.
I absolutely love the songs featured in both of them.

Flower punch - five uses

I only own one punch,~ The Flower punch~
And every now and then I try to find different ways to use it.
I think the charm of a five petal flower is absolutely splendid. Its also very special to me because all my life I have doodled two things, one is hearts and another is five petal flower.
And with no further delay I shall present the uses:

1. Branch of Paper Cherry Blossom.
This was the original post that was my inspiration, and triggered the purchase of the floral punch -How to Make a Branch of Paper Cherry Blossoms
Of course these flowers look nothing like cherry blossom, but still the idea of pink flowers on a branch is pretty.
2. In mix media art.
There can be countless ways to use these flowers in mix media art world. Following is just one of my interpretations.
This tree I made out of junk mail. (I also posted this in the past as a thing a day project in Feb)
Preparing an abstract background, and pasting these floral cut outs to form any shape. Like this tree, there can be a coffee mug, or a heart or .... the possibilities are numerous.

3. Little birds.
These birds are versatile, and can say anything (what ever you want them too). These can be on a birthday card, note book cover, letter.
With the flower punch they arepretty easy to make.

Carefully make snips in the line of the petal.With a drop of glue paste them on desired surface.
Give them eyes, feet, some personality.
Give them words...lil birdies have the power to say things that you cannot say.

4. Floral garland.
These garlands can fill life where ever they are placed.

5. Seal the envelop.

Take a little snip of clear tape, roll it like a pipe so that its sticky at both ends. Stick one end on the flower and another to seal the envelop.

Taaa daa....hope you liked it......!!!!!!!!!

Pottery update...

I made a lot of pieces in my clay studio class, but did not get a chance to upload them here.
There are from my initial classes, and hence wobbly and asymmetrical. Alot of these are are hand-built, because I wasn't confident enough to throw on wheel.
