DIY Quilled Monogram

Happy New Year Buddies 🙂 🙂 Have a wonderful year ahead !

One of my cousins was going abroad for higher studies. He wanted to meet us all before he left so I planned to make him some personal gift that he can take along and keep with him and thus the idea stuck me to make a monogram frame and wanted to share it with you guys. Anyone will like their gift associated with something related to them either their photo or their name so I chose to use his Initials to make a monogram gift which he might like. So this is how I made the monogram gift

Water colour painting

Watercolours is one of my most favourite painting colours. Every one of us must have used it from our childhood. We have been familiar with those colours but we never could easily predict the outcome :). That’s the interesting part of water colours they behave in their own way.

I haven’t done much of paintings but have done a few greeting cards and bookmarks with water colours. So I decided to do a simple painting with water colours along with my nephew who has come home for school annual holidays. And I have to admit it was lot more fun than we expected and there was more learning for both of us. Here we go with the two paintings we both made.scenary

This one I painted I loved the way the colours merged with each other
