Since I am used to making handmade gifts to friends and family. I planned to make these things all by myself and I am halfway done
All of a sudden my best buddy gifted me one of this amazing gift a “Handmade Desk organizer”. Since I haven’t received many handmade gifts this one totally amused me

Check out the design so beautiful such perfection ( The engineer in him claims for the perfect proportionate design ) so adorable. The choice of colours, the pretty floral pattern added as embellishment he has cut and pasted every piece separately such patience it takes. Such a worthy and most creative gift that made me go to clouds. Here we go
How are you doing its been a loooooooong time I have posted something here. Sorry for leaving my space unattended and keeping you all waiting. I have been held up with some exams and couldn’t post anything here. I almost forgot “Happy Ramzan” to all my Muslim buddies 🙂 Wishes and Apologies done now shall we move on to what I have in store for you. I wasn’t posting anything lately but I have been making few crafts now and then to keep me sane ;). So this week lets start with a lighter and easier post.
In school every child might have used a colour pencil. It might have been our fancy to colour every colouring page given by our craft teacher. We get fascinated by the crayons and colour pencils when we were young. As we grew up we moved to better colouring means like paint water colour and many more. We have left behind the colour pencils and thought they were for kids and we think we have out grown it.
Its never a sin to go back to your childhood and relive those happiness. It makes us feeling good. Same way I thought of doing a colour pencil drawing in memory of my childhood colouring books. But this time the colouring was a bit matured :). Its not a bad idea anyway It turned out to be a pretty nice drawing. Let me show you how I made one !
Supplies Required :
Ordinary drawing pencil
My Method :
Since we are grown up now we will draw our own drawing instead of the colouring books
So the first step is to trace the design in a simple pencil outline drawing
Once the design is complete slightly rub it with eraser It should be seen but not so prominent
Now start colouring with the colour pencils
I used only two colours. SInce mine is a floral design, Green for leaves and Pink for the flowers thats it I meant it to be simple
First Green outline to the stem and leaves draw with little pressure
Then colour the insides of the outline without pressure ever so lightly
Next is the flower I drew the outlines darker and made few places opaque with thick colour
Then the left out part inside the flower was coloured pink but lighter like we did in the leaves
We are almost done.Now I made it a little darker here and there few finishing touches and I am amazed by my pretty drawing myself.
Really a good drawing with such simple tools
Go grab your set of colour pencils and make your pencil drawings in colour 🙂
Making bookmarks was one of my favourite craft. I have made many different bookmark. I I almost had an obsession for making bookmarks. My buddy got inspired by me and he tried making a few bookmarks using chart paper and water colour. They are for kids, comic book since they look a little kiddish any kid will love to keep it between their comic book pages. The creative idea was making book marks in the shape of objects like bat, feather etc. It looks pretty cute idea isn’t it ? I personally kept all these bookmarks. Here we go a round up on his creativity
