Guest Post : Mona Jain from Quilling Ideas & Water Colors

I was looking for some quilling techniques, and I found Mona's Blog.
Mona blogs at  Quilling Ideas and Water ColorsShe makes amazing paper art-work, and they actually looks so cute.. It looks easy but hard to handle that delicate paper stripes. I have asked Mona for one more guest post where she will teach us step by step.
Here is Mona's post

My name is Mona. I am an architect by profession but a crafter by interest.
 I used to work for an architect but had to quit when economy went into recession. It has been well said that everything happens for good and for a reason...:) The good that came out of my unemployment was that I started looking at some other avenues to spend my free time. I joined some hobby classes in my neighbourhood. I enrolled for pottery class in the beginning and thoroughly enjoyed working with clay. Watercolors followed the pottery. During this time, I came across this art of paper filigree called quilling. Bought some basic supplies from a local craft store and it has been a fun ride ever since.

I was looking for some inspiration for my next painting on the Internet when I came across Rachana's blog. Her paintings immediately struck a resonance. Her paintings are so expressive and an absolute joy. I would like to thank Rachana for giving me an opportunity to write a guest post for her blog and become a part of her art journey.  To celebrate her blogversary and wonderful art work, I thought what better way than to contribute a painting and celebrate the painter that has inspired us both.  Following is Jamini Roy's Lord Krishna with Radha that I did with watercolors:

I would also like to take this opportunity to introduce to  Rachana's friends and followers the fascinating art of quilling. This unique form of art involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. Following are some of my quilling projects:

I would like to thank Rachana once again for inviting me to be a part of her blog. I wish her success and may her art work reach places.
