Rainbow in Clouds - Personalized Paper Quilling Typography Name Wall Art for Child's Room

 I have been traveling so much in last few months that creating has taken a back seat. Just thought of sharing this project I made a while back. Its for a friend's nephew. She wanted to give him something handmade for his  Mundan ceremony . I thought this Personalized wall art with his name in quilling would be a gift that can be cherished for years to come.

"Jai" in Hindi means glory and triumph. "Rainbow in clouds"  in my interpretation of the name and hence I chose to use Rainbow colors for the name. I used beehive technique by Susan for the clouds.   Here is a close-up of the project.

 Hope all of you are having a great weekend. I am loving mine with beautiful sun outside and a sleeping toddler at home giving me a chance to blog after a long time :).

Happy crafting!

Paper Quilling Typography for Children's Room

Created by : Amrita Singh

I made this for a friend's son's Birthday. He turned four this year. His parents requested for no gifts for the party. Initially I  planned to make a birthday card with his name in quilled typography. I thought that would be a meaningful gift and being handmade rather than store bought would respect the no gifts request from the parents too ;). But while making the project I changed my mind and framed it so if they wish they can display it in his room.

His name is "Avi ". In our native language Hindi it means Sun and Air.  I tried to include the colors Orange Red and Yellow to signify the brightness of Sun and a cool blue as background with a few scrolls between the individual letters to signify "Air".  I added a sun over the letter "I" using special quilling strips with golden edge. I tried the bee hive technique invented by Susan  for the first time and it sure was fun.

The letters measure almost 2.5 " in height. The finished design is 5 " x 7" approx and is framed in a 8" x 10" matted frame. Here is another photograph of the finished project.

I would love to get your feedback/ comments. They definitely make my skies brighter here in Seattle :).

Happy Valentine's Day

Created By : Nimisha Singh

Just thought to share one of our lovely creation, heart shape box with paper quilled Royal Flower on the eve of Valentine's Day.This paper mache box was created with lots of love. It was hand painted and then decorated with paper quilling. Paper quilled royal flower adds elegance to the the box. Seems the box is just waiting to be filled with lots of lovely chocolates or a surprise gift. It is one of the many boxes I created for our Craft Fair in November.

We wish all our readers a very happy Valentine's Day. We do celebrate this lovely occasion with lots of love and chocolates and of course lots of Valentine's day craft. In fact this year, since my 4 year old daughter is in preschool seems we will be celebrating it for the entire week.
