"Hi, I am Priyadarshini, fondly known as "Piyu" amongst family and friends. I work as a software engineer in Hyderabad.
I have been attracted towards arts and crafts since childhood, but got addicted to it 4 years ago, after I relocated to Hyderabad. It was an altogether new city with no friends and relatives. To add to it, my husband's job needed frequent travelling. Then one day, I had been to a craft exhibition where I bought a paper quilling card and my paper craft journey started. My dream came true when I put up my first ever exhibition in Singapore. Now I dream of having my own handmade gift store.
I started my blog http://notjustquilling.blogspot.com to showcase my work especially quilling. But now it has more of non-quilled cards."CraftyJC Challenge#6" was the first challenge I played and won. This little success, along with my fellow bloggers, encouraged me to try out new techniques in card making and scrapbooking.
I am a craft shopaholic and have a never ending wish list :). I would rather buy craft supplies than cosmetics or jewelry. Even a small purchase like a paper sheet keeps me happy all day along and hence my husband thinks that it's very easy to please me :)
When Jaya first informed me about this month's theme, I was super excited. I had loads of ideas in my head. I love doodling and the notepad that I carry for meetings is full of doodles :)
In this card, everything is hand-drawn / doodled on white card stock.
No stamps, digi images or pattern papers are used. I have used colour gel pens for drawing and staedtler water colour pencils for colouring.
The doodled gifts, candies, cakes etc. are cut and stuck with a foam 2 way tape to give a pop up effect. I hope you like it!
