With New year , I have found new passions to indulge in .
For long I was thinking to get a nail art kit , but the obscenely high cost of them , kept me from buying them.
Then this January , I bought a nail art kit from Amazon as it was on quite a discounted price ,and after it arrived and I tried , I was HOOKED.
The same day I ordered more image plate( round discs with engravings or designs etched into them ) , more special nail paints ( thick and quite opaque nail paints ) costing almost 2 K . 😐
There are endless designs you can create using the kit , Imagination is the limit.
The second one is Quilling , which I accidentally discovered while waiting for the attention of a super busy elderly shopkeeper in neighborhood stationery shop . While waiting I was checking out the items on display behind the cash counter , and the pretty pink flowers on a cardboard box caught my attention.
As I was already in search mode for ideas on how to make a handmade card for my husband on Valentine’s day , I thought to try them .
And when at home , I made my first quill , I was totally smitten by the beauty of the quilled roll in my hand and the endless possibilities it held.
I searched some designs on internet and started making my card .
Over the period of 2 days , I learnt that there are many techniques within quilling to give different results ( all of them are breathtakingly beautiful) .
I ordered some more supplies from CraftGully.com , mainly consisting of quilling strips ( long thin strips of paper is different colors , ranging from 1mm to 1 cm ).
