DIY- Art and Craft!

A DIY that happened right here in jaipur.....

One of those things that you just decide to suddenly do and it takes about an hour to make.... and the result is way more amazing than if you had spent a day thinking and planning about it!!!

So i was just watching TV (my all time favorite thing in the world) but my hands were itching... i just felt like i HAD to do something....

I had some small canvases at home... which i had stored thinking someday one day i'll make something.... and ta - da... the day had arrived!!!

I pulled out some old magazines... which i love storing because you never know when they inspire you....

got me some bright blue turquoise blue paint.... remnants of my room paint....

and got to work!!!

I painted the canvas.... and cut strips of magazine papers.... i tried sticking to like a color scheme.... namely blues gray and light beige....also i tried pulling out really pretty images!!!

I stuck the images, in a random manner and turned them all the way onto the thickness of the canvas. Its very important to keep the lines straight or at the end it won't look good.

Thats about done..... i like leaving some paint surfaces free so you can tell that its a canvas really.

Finally i punched some butterflies out of thick red paper, folded them such that their wings stand up and stuck them on to the canvas.

and its ready to be put up for show!!!! Now isn't that pretty and easy.... pretty easy!!!! ( ha ha ha i just had to!!!)

Imagine if I could make this in an hour what can I do with my whole day!!!!!!!!
