Garden Ideas - The Pebble Project

This weekend after several busy ones before, was a relaxed one ... spirited and gastronomically-stimulating too! Entertained a few visitors, went plant shopping at a horticultural society and celebrated our second wedding anniversary!

I also undertook this mega project which I intend to make a business plan out of, Rock Art. What I do is, take huge boulders and convert them to a form that is visually stimulating. Hehe just pebble painting as the title indicates. One each to give company to a Buddha, a bead-eyed frog and a turtle. Took out my fabric paints and brushes and spent 10-15 min on each, come have a look at the outcomes.

Buddha plans to sit on it and meditate

A few villagers posing with the painted rock


Green and white's company for the frog!


Heard the story of Lotus and the Blue Turtle? ;)


And all three products from the day's fun project, basking in the sunshine

Am sharing this 'craft'iness at some very cool blog parties - weekend wrap-up at Colours DekorPolly Want a Crafter, Mad in Crafts, Craftomaniac and Girl Creative.
Let a great week begin!

  2. Interesting work ... I should share the post with my niece - she loves to paint on objects vs paper.

    Cheers,

  16. Thank you all for the comments! I'm mighty pleased :P

    @Ankush, the Buddha is from a tiny store in Puttaparthi, and the frog from Mother Earth in Bangalore.
