    thanx a lot everyone for those inspiring words..these are all amteur works..i am sure all the talented ladies in ILs can do better than this...Crepe paper flowers for example are so easy to make.Just a bit of practice is all thats needed.
    Martha Stewart Crafts is an excellent site to learn the art...do try it out

    Hai Viji,
    You can use any sort of paper and fabric or water colours.I used indian ink in fountain pen for the borders and water colours on handmade paper.I used hand made paper with ridges and grooves to stimulate the effect of painting on a wall as they used to originall do on the walls of village homes..
    Thanx,
    sumitha

    re: Mixed Works : Embroidery , Paintings & Flower Making

    HI Priya,
    Crepe paper flowers are really very easy to make..but since i do not have the pictures of the templates etc ,i would suggest you visit the site Recipes, Cooking Tips, Home Decorating Ideas, Crafts, Gardening, Food and Dessert Recipes, and Entertaining from Martha Stewart to get a detailed idea and pictures.
    when u start making flowers ,try with an easily available 1 dh crepe paper...and then slowly graduate to the thicker varieties like the duplex paper which costs 9 dh for a role.
    the wire for flower making is available in the stationery section of LULU supermarkets and hypermarkets.Its thin , long and come in bunches and costs abt 12 dhms.
    hope this info would suffice..
    regards,
    sumitha
