IF - Unfold

A new life unfolds... for a bride



This is a mixed media where I have used glass colours, svaroski crystals for the jewels and the saree embellishments and the palanquin umbrella. I've also decorated the umbrella with fabric I cut out from lace.

IF; Better late than ne'er:)
Today my darling daughter unfolded her talent by bringing home first prize in recitation and a second prize in elocution. This was the first time she was doing an individual competition. Earlier they had only group events in KG.
Congrats to my l'tl darling...

Her talent has been unfolded, and you will sure have more joy in coming years.
Training her to attend competition and witnessing her joy of winning is marvellious. I can feel it here.
Please tell her that she is the best.
She is very pretty little cute girl, I am most appealed by her friendly and confident smile. That's the staisfaction of double winning prizes in school.It's certainly a good start for her.
