Day 4: Love

When love strikes: I’m sure many of us have told our friends that they don’t understand how it is.. That this time its different.. And Love just strikes us out of nowhere. I’ve been there. I’ve heard it told to me. Yes we cannot help who we fall in love with but then Don’t let love strike you. Lightening strikes. Not Love. 🙂

By all means fall in love. I’m a true believer in love. But also believe we tend to lose ourselves in love. We sometimes, in the pursuit of being in love, let the other person treat you wrong. You let parts of you chip away. You let things slide. First the small stuff that really didn’t matter and then the bigger stuff tat matter. And before you know you are emotionally dependent on that person, who knowing this takes full advantage of it and leeches onto you.

But then again there are those lucky few in this age and time, where they find their perfect love. Whose quirks meet theirs, whose crazy is their crazy, Letty to his Dom (Fast and Furious fan alert)  and more than anything they just fit.And for them LOVE TRULY DOES STRIKE.. And it STRIKES them hard. And for the rest of us mere mortals, one sided lovers and desperate romantics hoping for our Mills & Boons moment… Keep looking.. You may never know when cupid decides to pull those strings and strike you with his arrow.

So safe guard your heart but don’t lock it away and throw the keys. As much heartache  as you’ve been through, when love finally happens,it’s a breath of fresh air.

So today’s Brush Script is done with Copic Black 0 Dual Marker. Simple but strong words. when-love-strikes

DAY 3: DIWALI SPECIAL

Diwali.. The festival of lights has always had a special place in my heart. On this day I always make it a point to go and help the less fortunate. We have a tradition in our house. We donate To the local charity. Udavum Karangal. One meal for an entire year for the kids. Or School supplies for a set number of kids. whatever we can for the less fortunate. 

So this Diwali do what u can to put a smile on someone’s face, a sweet treat to a stranger, your time and company to some elders in an old age home. For if  not to spread light what is the Festival of Lights. 

For this brush script I’ve used Camlin outliner,  Copic markets, And sketches. 

P.s.: Being at my farm there isn’t much reception and hence the delay in uploading this blog. 

Day 2: Creativity

So its my second day of brush scripting. All of my quotes are inspired by Pinterest until I get the hang of it all. So this one is a perfect quote for me. Because as creatively blessed as I’m, I’m also a total mess. Once I’m done with one craft or one set of designing my room looks like it’s been hit by  a tornado. So this quote embodies me perfectly. I’ve used the same copies marker black for the thicker fonts and sharpie black for the thinner fonts.

I love drawing out vines too. I’m always scribbling vines whenever I think. Looking forward to some feedbacks and design inspirations. 

BRUSH SCRIPT : 365 DAYS- 365 QUOTES.

My love for Brush Script is fairly new. KellyCreates from Instagram inspired me. Everything from creating my own fonts to the soothing movements of the brush creating perfect letters, makes it such a beautiful artwork to learn. And I love the idea of writing quotes that are personal or something that inspires on a daily basis or even quirky ones that make you laugh. As part of my therapy I’ve decided to challenge myself. One quote a day for a year, accompanied from time to time with my paintings. So I welcome all my friends and people following me for inspirations or suggestions. And anyone willing to join me in this challenge, lets do it!! 🙂

So my first Day 1 Brush Lettering art work is one of the best quotes I’ve seen in recent times. And it truly made me laugh. I’ve used Copic Dual Brush Marker for this one, colours E17 and 100 Black.

So go ahead and make your POUR decisions, Red, White or Rose. And enjoy the consequences.

6 Degrees of Connection

0c697c4007fabe8e677d1166050b1981

Frigyes Karinthy came up with this notion that everyone is connected to every other person in six or fewer steps. I always found this to be untrue as most of us in this age with our busy schedule don’t even know their neighbours. This was until a month ago. 

In late June 2016, I had become a part of a group of likeminded members on WhatsApp and Facebook. I was introduced to the group by a friend who was introduced to that group and so on. We have member from over 5 cities in India and 3 countries around the world. And I didn’t think forging a relationship with any of them was even a possibility let alone making friends for life. But boy was I wrong. We call it the SOUL FAMILY. Because we are connected not just by some common person but also by our thoughts and by our characters and by our very soul. Because with this group of strangers I found home, a place where I could bare my soul and not get judged, a place where someone has gone through what you have and is readily available for advice or just to listen. 

And then the magic gets even more better when you click with someone online, someone you have never met and then you meet them for the first time and its 1000 times better. I made a friend here who I was looking forward to meet and when I met her our friendship was forged for life. Now I can truly say I’ve someone I can count on. No matter what. And what’s better, I introduced her to another friend of mine and they have now become kindred spirits. This idea of one person connecting to another is called 6 degree of separations but I call it 6 degree of connection. 

My soul family is half online transactions and half real life. Real life connections are a lot stronger. I believe you are meant to meet the people that you meet in life. My Munchkin is one such person. Total random stranger and a meeting of 7 hours and now he has become one of the most important people in my life. 

Everything is connected in a molecular level in life. Spiritual to Scientific. And if a person can’t find these connections then the meaning of life becomes void. For why are you on this earth if not to forge connections, to learn and to help and be helped in this motion of life. 

So find your next connection and another connection and grow more in life. If you can light up one person your purpose in life is set. 

TO MY SOUL FAMILY, WITH ALL THE GOOD AND BAD, I’M THANKFUL FOR YOU, BECAUSE YOU HELPED ME COME OUT OF MY COCOON AND LEARN AND FLY AND SPREAD JOY. I HOPE TO DO THAT EVERYDAY FOR EVERY ONE OF YOU IN RETURN. 

TO MUNCHKIN WHO MAKES MY LIFE COME ALIVE. I MAY HAVE SURVIVED MY LIFE WITHOUT YOU. BUT WITH YOU I HAVE STARTED TO LIVE IT. 

LET’S LIVE FOR US AND FOR THE PEOPLE AROUND US AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE. BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER. AFTER ALL 6 DEGREES IS BARELY A HUG AWAY.
