Quick Diwali Decor ideas

Hello friends ,

Sharada Dilip Happymomentzz

Diwali is the time to decorate your home so that you give your home the most beautiful and festive look.As the countdown for Diwali / Deepavali has begun I'm busy cleaning my home arranging and rearranging home decor and so on. That's the fun part of this festival isn't it , the preparations make the festival more festive ! 

Over the years my style has changed but the love for decor still remains keeping the minimalist style still in focus , you can see how differently I have decorated my home in my other blog write up IDEAS FOR DECORATING THE HOUSE THIS DIWALI . I have just rearranged my collection, you see in the earlier post and I haven't bought anything new but yes made something New !

I have prepped up my wall with Indian folk art theme this time. Every piece you see here has it's own story to tell 💗The Rajasthani Dolls you see are my travel souvenirs, where ever I travel I bring a piece from there back in my home.The Rajasthani painting you see in the center is made by a professional artist from Rajasthan, I bought this during my trip to Shilpagram , Udaipur. Shilpgram is a rural arts and crafts complex, situated 3 km west of the city of Udaipur. The center is spread over an undulating terrain of about 70 acres of land, surrounded by the Aravali mountains. Shilpgram is an ethnographic museum that depicts the lifestyles of the folk and tribal people of the region. I got the Rajasthani painting framed along with my paintings to bring the a pattern flow in the look.

This year I added 2 painting to my wall that I myself made. There is no surprise that I have been ignoring my painting and art skill since the crafting has taken over my life .I choose to try my hands on 2 different folk arts - Gond Painting and Madhubani art and I am glad I did.

Gond Painting

Sharada Dilip Happymomentzz

Gond paintings are a form of painting from folk and tribal art that is practiced by one of the largest tribes in India with whom it shares its name. The Gonds, are the largest Adivasi Community in India and are Dravidian's whose origin can be traced to the pre-Aryan era. They are mainly found in Madhya Pradesh and its surrounding States. The word Gond comes from Kond, which means green mountains in the Dravidian idiom.

I have hand drawn this picture, taking inspiration from a picture on pinterest. 
I have used Staedtler Black Fine-liner Pens here for the sketch and given it a twist by filling in colours using Tombow Dual Brush Pens and not the regular acrylic colours used.

 Madhubani art/ painting  

Practiced in the Mithila region of Bihar and Nepal, Madhubani painting is one of the many famous Indian art forms. Madhubani art or Mithila painting was traditionally created by the women of various communities in Mithila region of Bihar, and, it is popularly called Mithila painting or Madhubani art. This painting as a form of wall art was practiced widely throughout the region now you can see the  painting on paper and canvas as well.

For this painting I have used Copic multiliner pen for the sketch which is again an inspiration from a picture on pinterest. I have hand drawn and added colours using Tombow Dual Brush Pens , you can use regular acrylic colours for this and colour the bacground too but I chose to leave it plain.

These 2 paintings were made in a days time after I selected what I wanted to create and which mediums and then a day went to get this frame !

I love using vibrant colours in my creations and Indian folk art is the right blend for me. I am glad I finally got them framed right in time for the festival giving my favourite wall a Quick Diwali makeover. Thank you so much for visiting & taking the time to comment on my blog.
