Nostalgic Blooms From The Past

Yesterday when I was rummaging through a pile of my ol stuff I came across these wonderful flowers I had created some 12 years back. These, my friends, are fabric paiting. I had actually cut this piece of cloth from my dad's uniform cloth...It was indeed my first attempt at painting on fabric. In the first picture you could see that the paint had spread a bit coz I wasn't sure on how much to dip water.

Different styles are shown here.

The first one here is done with a bean cut.  A bean cut into two and dipped in paint and dabbed on cloth.
Haven't painted on fabric for a very long time.  I should be doing that soon:)
More to follow...

Happy Blooming Tuesday!

Missy n Senita

Missy and Senita together posing for a snap to treasure their first meeting. Senita arrived from London on a short visit to meet Missy. That happened two weeks before. Last week she was in Africa. This week she paid a visit to Australia. Senita is on a world tour I believe.
Here's Missy wishing Senita 'Good Luck!'

Happy Cactus Monday!

Smiling Beauty

"A smile happens in a flash, but its memory can last a lifetime"

That being said, it is also true that people are stingy with their smile.
What I would like to say is

"If someone is too tired to give a smile, leave one of your own, because no one needs a smile as much as those who have none to give"

Smiling Beauty was done in 2006. I am so much in love with this picture I made in Illustrator. There are some flaws still it doesn't matter. Maybe coz I love that smile :)

I had come across some pictures of beautiful women and I wanted to try one of those. I chose this one.
Hope you all like it too...

Have a Smiling Day :)
