Quilled Ganesha.





      Ganesha - the lord of good beginnings. Ever since I made  my first Ganesha , I have received numerous requests to quill the same. Only recently I received a request from someone dear whom I could not refuse . It is also my biggest Ganesha and my biggest project so far. My husband helped get the picture printed for me to quill. The paper on which it was printed has a very metallic texture although it looks rich in person , it doesn't photograph well at all and it was difficult to stick the strips down the smooth surface .
      I am actually happy with the outcome. I didn't have any of the paper that I had used when I first Quilled so I had to gather them before starting. The printed background is also a few shades darker than my first one and I choose paper strips accordingly . I used 5mm paper for the whole project. I have made some minor changes as required.

      When I made the first Ganesha , two years ago my elder son Abi was taking his twelfth exam. Now coincidentally Akhil is facing his twelfth board exam. My prayer is that he also has a great new beginning after  finishing school.

Thanks for stopping by , Have a great day.
