Flowers of Munnar



        This summer me and my family holidayed at Munnar(a bit of heaven on earth). it was such a welcome change from the hot and dry summer of Chennai. Tea estates covering acres and acres looking like green carpets was such a beautiful sight.I knew there must be a reason why Kerala is called God's own country.There were daises and roses and beautiful violet flowers everywhere.
   
        I wanted to quill something nice for my elder brother who is visiting us from Australia after four years to take back with him. I drew inspiration from  the colourful flowers of Munnar for my quilled basket with flowers. 




         I really wanted to frame my work but did not finish it in time so I made a shadow box to mount the basket and the quilled flowers( I bought a sheet of  green hand made paper to make this shadow box,a beautiful example of the sheets we are using for our library's golu this time).



    



        Thanks for stopping by, Have a lovely day.
