The next one in the line of painting flowers in acrylics is violets.

Here is my try of painting Poppies using acrylics.I think it looks like a kid's painting :) 


Valentine's sweet treats

Today I met with my fellow card makers to make some cool cards and sweet treats boxes for valentine's day.  I found the theme a little funny. I will tell you why. First of all, I don't have a valentine in my life, so making these cards made me think, I am getting ready for a valentine, just in case, I get lucky before valentine's day. :) First we made a box for chocolates as shown below.
I thought it was funny because, as they say in India, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, as most Indian guys are foodies. Not sure about other nationalities, so do not want to generalize here. The fact that we added some candy to the mix made me laugh. At least that way guys will look at the card, isn't it?If that's not enough, we made more sweet treat bags like above. If you cant make sense of it, its a little candy bag with well decorated Hershey's on either side.

If you think it's indirect to give a box of sweet candy to the guy, I also made a card that you see vaguely in the pack above. See, don't you think, I am getting ready to ask someone ? Alas, if only there was a guy to ask that question, isn't it?

                      
If you think the guy won't be too impressed with my spelling skills, or my humor, I also made it extra clear with the right spellings like below.

Isn't the theme funny in itself? I guess, if not this year, I will keep these for next year for my valentine to show up. :)
