Mandala design - altered box




Mandala
I am here to share with you a small altered project with mandala design as the center focus. As you all know that the mandala is considered auspicious in the Hindu tradition and it has its significance. We do hawan-homa-yagna with this mandala design offering prayers to the Gods.  These are very symbolic and have their own importance.

Here I have used a mandala designed sweet savior box which I had.  I liked the design on the box and preserved it hopping it may be used as a storage box for my small embellies/craft beads or so.  

                          

I have used glitter washi tape along the edge of the box, stuck rhinestones and pearls along the box and in the mandala design.  I have also used filigree corners at either ends. Also made roses from my cherrylynn die set, used golden pearl string and decorated the box giving it a finishing touch. I used a organza ribbon on the outer edges and also glitter washi tape.  



In the inside I decorated the sentiment with glitter washi, with few flowers in the corners and stuck a precious moments drawing which I have watercolour.


Hope you all liked this altered box of mine.
Wish me luck and leave a comment.  I would like to hear from you.


Regards

Introduction

Welcome to my little space of this Blog land.


I'm Hema and I live in Bangalore, India. 



I have been working in the corporate sector- Human Resources department.  I quit the job quite recently and have dedicated my time to my all time passion art and craft.   I was very much interested in drawing and craft ever since my childhood, this I feel I have picked it from my mother. I have learnt the traditional style of painting like Tanjore art; Mysore art , painting on silk cloth, mural art to name.




I want to share my creations with you all here in this small Blogland of mine. The craft bug caught me a few years ago when I was surfing net and happened to check something on YouTube.   My eyes rolled on a beautifully designed card and that happened to be a tutorial. I went through the video and zaaap my jaw dropped down.   I admired the way  this lady explained the process of making a card.  From here on this strong obsession took over me.  I would like to take this opportunity to dedicate my work to this beautiful lady who has not only inspired me but a lot of people out there.  Want to know who she is. ....... well she is



                       "CHRISTINA GRIFFITHS-flowersribbionsandpearls.blogspot.com"



Most of the people out there know her work and she is Ambassador for Spellbinders.  I follow her work and reflect most in my creations. 



I want to share my work and ideas over here. I have to confess that I enjoy whatever little things I have been doing.  This gives me immense pleasure.   Hope that you all out there do visit my blog and leave your comments and suggestions so that I can improve myself and do create more.



Thank you so much and God bless. 



HEMA.
