Hand made envelops 1

Warli?? looks like my latest obsession ;)
Its a form of Tribal painting, Warli is extensively practiced by the 'aadivasis' (Tribals) of Maharashtra region. Simple geometric patterns that depict the lifestyle of tribes is the essence of this art.

Made these traditional envelops using the old wedding invitations. Decorated them with ceramic paint. Never used ceramic before..gave this a try after my cute sister guided on the basics of ceramic.

Used punched flowers and pearl color in this hand made envelop.


  1. Wow didi ! Firstly nice bright colors of envelopes . Design is also v nice specially that 'pongu' in his hand ;)

  2. Nice envelops... considering that it is the first time, it has come out very well... Why is that red envelop folded, you could have used some other proper stuff...

  3. Your Warli is awesome Lavina I like the embossed effect!

  4. great work Lavina. please guide how to do ceramic work. was planning to do something special for hubby but noow that you have already tried and did such a fab job. better to ask for a tutrial. please help.

  5. sure dear Sayantani...will definitely post a tutorial..when is your DH's bday?
    In the mean time, I'll just tell you..I mixed Ceramic powder and DDL (its a form of fevicol) to get a mehendi or hina like consistency(little thcker than hina, coz it might spread). Then made a plastic cone and put it in that. All ready to can make any number of designs with this cone. If you want colors, you can mix fabric or poster colors in the ceramic and DDL mix..
    do let me know if you face any difficulty..all the best

  6. Fun envies! Thanks for joining in at CJC!
