Paper beads, seed beads

Paper beads, Seed beads
Paper beads and seed beads make a great match…. Who knew!

I made these a while back, and still haven’t figured out how I’ll use them! 🙂

Repurposed

Container
I’d mentioned a tiny container a while ago — it contained kumkuma powder in it. Now that the powder’s finally been used up, I’m using it to store tiny trinkets. (Yes, trinkets that are tinier than the tiny container.) From being a symbolic gesture at a religious ceremony to being used to store kumkuma to now — I’d say this container has had quite a ‘repurposeful’ journey.. 😉

This is the color version of the black-and-white that I’d published then. As always, I love the insightful contrasts between the two pictures!

Directions

Directions
To have a direction for the things we love to do — maybe continue onward in a familiar direction and finding new knowledge, maybe turn in an unknown direction and finding new adventure. To new horizons..

This picture is a processed layering of two pattern papers from my sister’s collection.

Lights

Lights
A double exposure using different results that I got while playing with the same lights on different occasions — a primitive light drawing, and a bokeh. Together, they’re magic! 🙂

Creative chaos

Creative chaos
A picture that I clicked of my sister’s card-making preparation from today — alcohol inks on aluminium foil. There is chaos in it, and creativity, and when she finally uses this in her card, there’s just the wow! 🙂

Yellow

Vessel

Base of a decorative vessel with a stem. I chanced upon this while roaming around the Goa Gajah temple, Bali. Just look at the patterns on it!

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Yellows.

What’s inside?

Container
The color version of a photograph that I submitted for one of the Monochrome Madness weeks. I like how all the glitter on this little container stands out so well in a macro shot — just one of the myriad everyday things that one does not notice usually..
