It is soon going to be a year since I started blogging. What I have experienced here is immense... in terms of learning, knowing people, understanding the cultures of various places etc., I have come across many bloggers who with little recognition consider themselves celebrities. On the other hand, I have also met some people who inspite of all the fame are still humble and have an aura of motivaton around them. Hats off to them. From my list of such people, I would like to introduce Patricia whom we all lovingly call Pat. She is a person filled with honesty, love and humbleness. She has travelled all around the globe and her blogs reflect her experiences. I simply adore her simple, subtle nature. She shares a high level of genuity and this can be seen in her comments. She patiently answers all your queries. She is immensely talented and writes very well. Appreciating her down to earth nature, I request all my readers to visit her blogs http://coloursdekor.blogspot.com/ where she passionately writes about decorating homes and http://amitpatty.blogspot.com/ where she writes about her travels. I am happy and surprised to be featured on her blog. Please visit this link to see my blog featured. Thank you so much Pat.....

From the day these asbestos panels were put up on the terrace of my in-laws, my hands were itching to do something on them. To personalise the space, I wanted to decorate them myself and I took 2 days to complete this work and by this I mean that I just completed 1 panel out of the 6 panels. I was very eager to share this with all my readers. As a professional designer and a decorator, I am against the idea of spending a lot just because you want to beautify a space. I believe the real challenge is when you can decorate a given space with the least of expenses. With this whole idea in mind, I discussed with my father-in-law who was more interested than me to work out something for this space. After identifying that he was interested in something traditional and ethnic, I scouted around for some old calendars. To my surprise I found lovely calendars with motifs of Radha & Krishna. I decided to keep this as my theme and worked on a Decoupage technique with Oil medium. Here are a few pictures of the same.Radha & Krishna sheltering themselves from the rain......

One finished panel. 5 more to go.
Fortunately, I found a few calendars with Radha & Krishna in different moods. I hope to finish all the panels as soon as possible and showcase them on my blog. Before I forget, I spent only Rs.250 to do this panel. I still have the paints and the rest of the materials left to finish 1 more panel. Eagerly wanting to do the next one....
Hope you enjoyed this post.................have a great day ahead !!!!!!
