I finished decorating another arathi thattu. Like my previous one this is also a wooden frame covered with handmade paper. The plate is decorated with quilling ,some bling and the frame is decorated with a recyled ribbon flower and a string of beads .
The square is quite large with both the length and breadth more than A4 size , the challenge for me was to find ways to cover the area quickly. I made a big crimped flower for the center and swirls to cover the rest of the space. Alternate looping method is a quick way to make big quilled elements and so I choose this method . I did struggle a lot to stick the single strips on the uneven surface, had to use a lot of glue . The good thing is the glue doesn't show much. I made the center of the flower flat so as to make place for a small lamp.
Thanks for stopping by, Happy international women's day.
