2.My Own Little World

Second Artist I admire her. Took her two days,she not only Draws her own picture and have the paper cut filigree but also expremients with a lot of mediums and artistic teqniques read about this one you will know what i mean

Title :"A Gift to Treasure<3" 

Description : I just thought of doing something which suits for everyone.
So i have chosen to do it for "Best Friend". No matter how old you are, we have a best friend to whom we share everything, fight endlessly and do all crazy things.

A Frame (30cm x 24.5cm). Instead of leaving a gap to fit the photo,i just fill it with a cute little Paper Cut and a saying related to it . 

Inspiration : I am passionate towards paper crafts and paintings. If i got a paper in my hand i ll do something with that  
Materials Used :
Recycled Items
1.Wooden Board left after carpeting (luckily i got a perfect shape:)) 
2.Old magazine papers
3.Old cardboard from a shirt parcel for the Paper cut and finally for the make over a white cloth, chalk powder, Fevicol and Acrylic Paints.

Time Taken : Approximately 2 days!!

Process of Making :

Here it goes!!:) First i covered the wooden board with a piece of white cloth. I used fevicol to glue it, make sure there should not be any 
ups and downs in the cloth,It should be perfectly flat. I used a paste (Mixture of chalk powder, fevicol and little water) and applied it over 
the board and made it dry. Actually same process is done in preparing the board for doing Tanjore Paintings. I used the technique here.
After the board gets dried completely i applied blue and white mix of acrylic paint and the board is ready!!!

Here comes the fun part.. To decorate the board i made many shapes by rolling the old magazine papers. I collected many number of rolls and
started making different shapes and i totally forgot that i am doing it for an exhibition:P Finally i pasted the rolled paper for the border 

My most favorite part is Paper Cutting. I have drawn this cute picture and used a old cardboard from the shirt parcel to cut it and finally 
wrote a saying relating the picture. 

Titled : Tribal Pendent
Description : Its a OOAK, unique tribal pendent made with polymer clay. Approx 3 inch in height. The pendent has true tribal feel, human head covered in pistachio shells over bone beads and animal tooth. All the work and carving is done by me.
My name is Rachana Saurabh, I am an artist. And these days I have change my focus on my clay work as I am not able give enough time to my paintings.
Talking about inspiration.. I was very much exited to participate in the exhibition, and I made a brooch as "something for Man".. But I didn't recognized the subject is recycling.. After a long time Pistachio shells solved my question It was something perfect match with the concept, and "Tribal designs - for Man" I took around 2 days to finish it as this is the first time I managed to sculpt a human face in clay.

5. Winnie's Basket

Title: The Beer Brooch

Description of my creation:-Like every man, my man also has a special corner in his heart dedicated specially to his darling beer (and surprisingly, i'm not envious of her). So every other weekend, post rendezvous with this darling of his, i'm left with a lot of cleaning and empty beer cans.
Thats when i decide to take matters in my own hands(quite literally!) I took all the cans, separated all the required tops from them, worked my way around with a little help from a nylon string, attached a pin at the back and voila! The birth of the beer brooch!
The beer brooch pinned to my prince charmings shirt or coat, although will be a quick reminder of beer, but deep down he'll know whos always close to his heart..

Many such quirky items are also available on my facebook page.
