Bubbles and a colourful 100!

This is my 100th post - Yay!

Shruti guessed it! Our bubble wrap block print for the Artsy Craftsy June is here:

Cut out bubble wrap in desired shapes and print. Make sure the air in the bubble is intact for better effect. Make sure that you don't take to much paint - it'll get smudged.
The Rooster & Peacock: (Inspired by Tulika's Rooster and the Sun) The rooster and peacock are friends and they were playing. The rooster saw the sun and smiled and the peacock saw the clouds and started to dance.


The Dirty Peahen: This peahen didn't listen to amma and fell into a ditch and got dirty. Now no one is playing with him.

Flowers for Ummachi: This one is my favourite because it was conceived and designed and executed entirely by Pattu. Story by Pattu as well: There are no flowers for ummachi in the sky (which is why we keep flowers for ummachi here...you see?) so Pattu has planted some flowers in the sky. Potato carved for flower and pegs and blocks for clouds.

Hand Print- Pattu who loved colour: Inspired by Tulika's, 'The boy who loved colour', Pattu painted her hands (in fact the whole of her arms and legs..)


Okra Art: The Caterpillar who loved flowers. This one is also pattu's work - almost 90%. There's a caterpillar who liked to eat flowers and not leaves and when he became a butterfly he wore flower printed wings.


These two are newspaper strip art that we had done earlier... not for the Artsy Craftsy...We painted whole sheets of newspaper in different colours and cut them into strips and smaller bits. Then drew an outline and stuck the strips within the shape...

Thanks everyone! My two earlier blogs didn't go beyond 6 posts and I had some serious misgivings about this one crossing 10... but Pattu kept me going and I'm having great fun out here ... and am glad I've made so many new friends!
Thank you!

As you can see, Pattu has been her 'bubbly' best last few days :D

Tulika Publishers said...

Congratulations on the 100th post! It's wonderful to see art inspired by Tulika:) Am most impressed with the bubble wrap ones - I can't hold a piece of bubble wrap in my hand without compulsively popping the bubbles on it:)

Indu, India said...

Love the bubble wrap art. Congrats on your 100th post! :)

Shankari said...

Wow! Congratulations on the 100th post! And the Tulika inspired one is awesome :) Love the colours in it! Love the handprint one also. It can make a very cool children's room decor.

Loved loved loved the newspaper craft! What a great idea..Awesom Uma!

apu said...

Too cool, Uma. I loved the idea of the caterpillar who ate flowers and became a butterfly with flower-printed wings :)

Uma said...

Tulika - Thanks :) Tulika inspires much more - when Pattu doesn't want to listen to her amma, she says, "if I do that will the needle come out of the well?" ... and will soon post our version of the Bondattam too :D
And I had a tough time keeping Pattu from popping the bubbles :)

Indu - Thanks, Thanks :)

Shankari - Thanks :) - handprint for decor is a cool idea.

Apu - :D tales that kids can come up with :D

apu said...

No, seriously, if I could, I would love to eat flowers and become a flower-printed butterfly :)

Uma said...

Apu - :D I wish it were that simple!

Trish said...
