This is another art piece made from recycled paper, wool, twigs, glue gun/super glue and acrylic paints. In my last week’s post I have explained how to make this paper mash ( link for your reference given)- MADHUBANI LOTUS ON RECYCLED-PAPER. This piece too has been made from the same process except for a little variation. 1) After making thick paste of the paper, roll it into three balls of different sizes- big, medium and small depending on the overall height you want for your snowman and leave it in the sunlight to dry and become hard. 2) It might take about 2-3 days or a week to dry, so meanwhile take some yarn and start knitting a scarf and a hat using colors of your own choice and the length of the scarf and cap depends again upon your snowman’s size. For assistance with knitting I highly recommend you to visit Studio Knit on Youtube. In case you are not comfortable with knitting you can also take any bits of colorful cloth that you have to make this scarf and cap. 3) Once the 3 paper balls have dried and become solid stick them firmly on top of each other using hot-glue-gun/super-glue in order of big at the bottom – medium- small. Once the balls are completely stuck paint them with thick white acrylic paint (I insist you to use Pidilite Paints if possible). 4) Then prepare the hands and nose – use twigs from fallen branches of plants (do not break twigs from a nice and healthy plants, use only twig from fallen branches.) and paint them dark brown acrylic (again, I insist you use Pidilite Paints if possible). For the nose use the end of a toothpick and paint it acrylic orange (Pidilite Paint). 5) Then pore holes in both of the sides of the middle paper ball and use hot-glue-gun/super-glue to stick the hands firmly into the holes. To fix the nose, take the painted-toothpick end and stick it by poring a hole in the middle of the smallest-top paper ball. 6) Then take the cap and scarf and stick it on the head and between the middle and top ball (neck) respectively. Lastly paint two eyes and a smile on the snowman’s face using black acrylic paints (Pidilite Paints). For decoration purpose, stick small beads or buttons down the body of the snowman.
That’s is the process to make this creative snowman which can be used for home decor made at home without doing any harm to the environment since it is made from recycled paper!!!
This is another painting from THEARTSHERPA on Youtube. It is a awesome painting of a golden-retriever with a mouthful of colorful flowers. There isn’t much to say except that the best part of this painting is the expression in the eyes of the golden-retriever along with it’s fur and the colorful flowers going well with each other to create this beautiful composition!!!
This is a paining made with acrylic paints on a recycled cardboard material to show a little bit of contribution from my side towards the environment. The steps to make this sort of cardboard are given below:
1) Take any old notebook- it should be completely filled. Tear it into medium sized pieces by tearing 1 page into 2 portions.
2) Take any container according you convenience and pour warm water in it. Soak the paper completely and if you have a lot of free time then you can leave it overnight.
3) If not, then you can use your hands or any other equipment like a masher to make a fine, thick paste of the paper.
4) Then spread it over a cloth and leave it outside to dry in the sunshine for approximately a little over 1 week. If you want it to dry earlier, then first use the cloth to soak out any excess water that is possible.
5) You can also make it into any shape you want and if you want it to have a design or so you can make imprints or decorate it while it is still a thick paste.
Then any design can be painted on it and there you are! Now you have a new decoration item (depend on your choice and creativity) or a cardboard for acrylic or modern art paintings all with recycled notebook!!!
This is the beautiful designs of mandala drawn into a butterfly’s wing. The idea was taken from Facebook and I found it quite interesting, so I modified it in my way and here is the drawing! The best part of this design is the way the mandala designs correspond with the butterfly to make it really expressive and beautiful!!!
This is a colourful painting which I have painted by watching TheArtSherpa on Youtube. It is a wonderful channel to learn painting from! This is a creative style of painting. To view another painting learnt from TheArtSherpa, click the link : https://artistic.poetry.blog/2020/09/11/candle-painting/
The best part of this painting is of course, the wonderful rainbow colouring!!!
This is another beautiful composition of the Madhubani style. The lady , the house , the goat, and tree combination and their positions were taken from soma@folkart from google. The designs, the filling and the black and white distribution was done by me. The best part of this composition is the intricate design going well with the scene!!!
Lived ever after happily, Ends tales told by a fairy, Attention we don’t pay to it much, Impossible we think it is to live as such, But possible it is quite, When in darkness we focus on the light, When we choose laughter at the time of sadness,
Living always our best lives; whatever the circumstances, Happiness within ourselves finding, No matter what happens ;on to it holding, We’ve understood it wrong throughout, For this is what Happily Ever After actually about, To our life it has an important connection, Which was hidden under decades of misinterpretation!

This is a sketch of a young lady silently pondering. There isn’t anything to say about this drawing; it is quite self-explanatory. The best part of this compostion is the calm expression on her face along with all the effects brought in with shading!!!
This is another composition of Lord Krishna. In this drawing most of Lord Krishna’s way of living is depicted. The Peacock Feather symbolizes beauty, knowledge , felicity and joy along with the celestial wisdom of Lord Krishna. The flute is a symbol of Radha’s love and much more. The best part of this composition is the divine aura attained due to the expressive eyes!!!
If I kept a tiger pet, Nothing to eat I would get, As it would gobble-up all my food, And would spare me nothing chomp, Which is very rude,
I would have to be friends with other tigers, Which includes the cross-breed liger, As a normal human I would have invite them home, And all over the city they would roam,
Soon I would be arrested by cops, And my tiger would wave at me grinning, Wearing sunglasses, from the nearby shops, And that’s how it will end probably, My pet tiger occupying my entire home, Not only the generously provided balcony, But, a pet tiger though, for such a price, I think next time I’ll just pet some mice!
Supposed to provide protection, At crime they should take objection, ◦ The constituition they must strictly follow, But the police in Maharashtra are really shallow,
As political idiots rule the police, Their blunders increasing gets our notice, With coverup of crimes being their priority, From their hands please transfer the authority,
Innocent reporters on political instructions they assault, When actually the unworthy and unqualified government is at fault, They simply do this unjust activity, For they are incompetent when in reality,
Trying to subdue public’s voice, Never in a democracy is the wise choice, With Republic TV exposing their atrocious lies, Let’s stand with Republic to make sure this hooliganism dies!!!
This is the coloured relaxation mandala. Now it is quite likely that you are thinking, “What is relaxation mandala? And how is it different from the other mandalas?” Well I have also posted MULTI-COLOUR MANDALA. But this mandala is different from the others because when you design it it improves concentration and calms down our minds, not only that but even when you simply colour this type of a mandala it acts as a temporary stress reliever. In this particular relaxation mandala the theme is of the special vegetation and more over most recognised wildlife of my dear motherland – India. In the centre I have designed theashoka-chakra but it has been drawn four times-Why? I have kept the entire design in four theme that is a square because I also wanted to depict the National Emblem of the Republic of India which is a four-sided and four-headed lion which faces the north , south, east and the west known for Satyameva Jayate. Infact I have designed the entire mandala in honour of our National Emblem. The best part of the mandala is the perfect synchronization of our National Emblem along with Tiranga- The Indian National Flag, the Ashoka-Chakra; which a part of our flag, the Lotus– our national flower, the Bengal Tiger– our national animal, the Peacock – our national bird, the AsianElephant – our cultural symbol; the importance of Lord Ganesha in Indian’s life and the Indian King Cobra– often depicted with Lord Shiva ( the father of Lord Ganesha ) as Vasuki and Lord Vishnu as Adhishesha/Shesha/Sheshanaga and is worshipped as a symbol of wisdom, changes, enchantment, hypnosis, protectiveness, danger, poison, determination, fear, strength, courage, confidence, transformation, royalty, death. They are also a symbol of speed, defensiveness, and gracefulness. I hope you enjoyed learning about our Indian Culture !!!
This is a scene in of the Great Samudr Manthan that is recognised as one of the most significant events in Hinduism. I have composed it in one of the most traditional forms of art – Madhubani. I learnt this composition from a wonderfull workshop- the same workshop that taught me the Madhubani style. The best part of this drawing is the detailing, the colour scheme and the way the the scene has been imaginatively as well as creatively recreated!!!
This is another Madhubani drawing of the extremely well known Lord Krishna and Radha his dearly loved one. The idea and the main outline of the drawing was taken from soma@folkart, yet I have made changes like the colour scheme, filling, etc.The best part of this composition is the beautiful way Lord Krishna and Radha have been depicted, the artistic way in which the feeling of the composition reaches the observer!!!
This is one of the many portraits I have drawn. This is a composition without colour (shaded) The idea was taken from Google, all have done is made some variation to it…. Taylor Swift is one of my favourite popstar so I was interested in drawing her portrait (in case you are wondering). The best part of this portrait is that her expressions are to almost perfection!!!
This a multi-colour mandala. It depicts the different combinations you can design within one type of drawing. The idea was taken from a Facebook photo of such a kind of mandala, yet I have made many variations in the drawing like for example the colour scheme can be anything that shows the differences along with the symmetry. The best part of this mandala is that it differentiates between each individual row and design without losing the symmetry of the composition!!!
We all know this Chinese country, Which is pent up on destroying our lives, We all know this Chinese country, Which is another new problem that arrives, We should boycott “made in china”, And spread the message far and wide, That we will also fight with our soldiers, Not cower and hide, So, come on Indians, let show our power, And lessen the use of their products by the hour!
This is another drawing form the madubani style…the main symbols used in the drawing are the lotus and sugarcane in the background. Lotus motif symbolizes feminity while the Sugacane motif symbolizes a sense of mascular being. These two symbols are used widely as wall patterns especially on the walls of the house where newlyweds live. The best part of this composition is the use of the masculine and feminine figures that go along with the motifs in the background which creates mood of the composition!
This is a comic adaptation done by me. The limerick is a poem from the Brain Quest. This is a type of art which amyone with a bit of imagination and creativity can do… as for me , even I too have done it only for fun! The best part about this type of art is that it creates visual effects for any poem which makes the poem reach to the reader very easily and it also it quite entertaining!!!
This is a Aripan which is a type of tile design. It is related to a mandala as well as madhubani art as it is used as a tile design in the Indian state of Bihar. There is always a theme to this type of design. In my drawing, I have based the theme on nature. The best part of this design is that all the colours have given the effect they were intended to give, the cool water; the home of the lotus flower and the green parrots, warm yellow background along with the sharp red chillies which have given so much character to the design !!!
This is another form of art which is also very detailed and artistic. I have learned this form of art called Mandala from an awesome workshop…. the base of these drawings are completely geometrical. The best thing about this form of art is that it increases concentration and calms our mind!!!
This is a drawing from the Madhubani artists of India. This form of art comes from a tribal group in Bihar, India. The basic outline was taken from soma@folkart , but the rest has been designed by me!!! The thing that distinguishes this drawing is that it is one of the most decorative art forms!!!
This drawing was inspired by the awesome festival of GANESH CHATURTHI… I consider my drawing as a gift to GANESHA for always helping me to study for exams and giving me so many abilities!!! So, THANKYOU to my favourite god Ganesha!!!
