The last day of February spells the last day of our Feb DIY carnival.
Have you checked out all the entries? They are so creative, you must go have a look before the event ends. And, if you haven't yet participated, it is still not too late!
Here's my last moment entry to the carnival. I wanted a name board to hang outside our apartment door. I wanted it to be different from all the other name boards I have seen before. The weekend was busy with the security door people coming in to install doors and grills. I now have a little nook right outside my front door, and I plan to put all my Warli painted pots there. So I decided on a Warli-themed name board.
Here it is. I painted it on thick handmade recycled drawing sheets(bought during my visit to the handmade paper factory)
. I am bad at painting in alphabets, so I took a printout of our name, then decoupaged it on to the handmade paper, and painted over it again.
I can't hang it up yet because the littlest one in the picture (see the babe in arms?)is not yet on the scene :) I love it cos it looks so amateur and entirely "home made" ;)
