Acrylics, Glass, Magnets & Keychains...


Any guess at what these are???
Yes, They are decor magnets and keychains.
I found out this method of making decorative magnets some 7 years back. They are sheets on which I painted with glass, covered it with card stock and glued a magnet. I will include a tutorial very soon for all my friends here.  It's a very simple tutorial too.

Same method I apply for making bookmarks as well (without magnets glued:)).
These are Eygptian & classic bookmarks.


A closer view....

I am totally on top of the world this week coz I displayed my artworks at ARTE Souq last Friday and four of my paintings sold along with few bookmarks. I am ecstatic!!! I had a really superb neighbour, Sonal Bharjatya from Studio Saubhagya. She's a fabulous fabric jewellery designer passed out from the prestigious NIFT. Her designs are amazing. You can check out the link to see her wonderful creations.

My sold artworks...
(Can you see my tag in the collage above? That goes with all my artworks)

Mayilpeeli (peacock feather)- acrylic painting

Ammayum njanum (Mom & I) - acrylic painting

Foliage -glass painting

Amaryllis - glass painting

I was also lucky as two journalists recorded my profile along with few others to upload it in their website that describes Dubai to tourists. They said they'll send the link once that is done.
Lil A was all elated running around and marketing for her mom in a really modest way:)

It has been a pretty exciting week:)))
Hope your weekend went well...
I am linking it up to Colours Decor Weekend Wrap up 35
