Happy New Year!

Here's wishing my readers a peaceful, serene and safe 2009.

May the new year bring new hope, and be creatively fulfilling!

I leave you this year with a picture of the Red Sock Santa that I made for the kids' Christmas display this year. Not a very fantastic piece but it gave the kids a lot of joy, and that is what matters the most.
I will be away from my blogs for a few months as I will be busy moving houses.
I hope to be back with you sometime in the middle of 2009 with lots more to report about my creative projects.

CD Artworks

I have found a very effective way of dealing with corrupt CDs. The solution is surprisingly simple - just turn them into works of art! Like I did this for my kids....

I stuck stars and a half moon made out of chocolate wrappers on the shiny side to create an effect of night. Then I painted a sun on the side which had all the writings.

Since dollops of acrylic paint didn't hide the markings effectively, I finished it off by sticking paper bits to the sun.

And voila! This CD mobile now hangs right above the kids' bed, and they love it.
Hope you like the idea, and can put your corrupt CDs to better use. Have fun creating! :)

Glassy Affair

I’m back here after a long hiatus because my internet service provider knocked off our connection and kept us away from the Web for a whole month. But that meant some “extra time” for my creative pursuits, so I really shouldn’t complain. :)

Here’s a peek into what I have been up to in the last month. Glass has caught my fancy currently so I am painting bottles and trying out new styles and combinations. I have mostly worked with water-based ceramic and glass paints, and a couple of glitter outliners.

I plan to use these bottle-vases in my new home when we move there next year. How’s this for a tiny flower vase? It used to be a nail paint remover bottle.

I created a Ganesha glass painting using a similar technique but I’m not going to show you that now. Let’s wait till we get that one framed….

The second bottle-vase I plan to use for dry floral decorations; this was an antiseptic solution bottle before it landed in my hands.

I really love the way it came out, especially how I can see the objects on the other side through the glass.

Do let me know what you think of my bottle-vases!
