Art from soul : The Celest

The world of colors appears fascinating to me. Whenever I bump into any stationary store, all I like to do is to go to their art and craft section. And I always find something to buy, although my drawers are exploding with such stuff if I may humbly say so. Among all the types of colors, I find water-colors as a very subtle and yet very prominent medium to do any art form. Moreover you don't have to use them in large amounts as acrylic or oil paints. Only a little bit and some water and there you go!

Lately I have discovered my interest in 'Zentangle' art form. Zentangle is a modified form of doodle. Doodle or scribble is any kind of drawing which is made when a person is occupied in some other thoughts. Modern day sciences have discovered that Zentangle is a therapeutic drawing which improves concentration of mind. 

I started my first zentangle drawing in the beginning of this year. I painted a zentangle elephant which I have shared in my previous post. These drawings take patience and time but are fun to do I swear. This time I created small circles representing the planets and the celestial system. I have named it'The Celest'.

 I have used Faber Castel Artists water colors on Canson Montval paper.

With lot of projects on my plate, I am going to start with inspirational interiors. I have rounded up some amazing home tours to make this month a lot brighter.

DIY NIGHTSTAND FOR YOUR BEDROOM : COUNTRY LIVING HOME DECOR

Hi! How are you doing ? I wanted to share a cool DIY project I worked on a few weeks back. I was sifting through ideas to get my home closer to looking what I wanted it to look like when I moved here. After the initial setting up of things, and before we bought new stuff to populate the many vacant areas, I thought I'd first do something about objects lying idle and put them to good use. I started  with a remnant of a previously owned (and long separated) aquarium: its stand. I was practically stuck with the wrought-iron piece for over two years. While the aquarium was long gone, it had left behind its metallic abode to anti-decorate my previous living space and now this one! This sorry piece of metal was languishing in some corner of my house, gathering dust and my ire. The reason I did not dispose it off is...well...I don't know. To think of it now, may be it was because it had to transform into this new avtaar.



I had been craving for a bedside table for sometime now. When …
