Post 2 I and my husband have turned into cave people here. Delhi, my city is turning hot with 46ยฐ C; fumes from sun has made us keep indoors, and we try our best to sweat the heat (hahaha), by keeping our airconditioners low/off mostly. Yes, we kind of like sweating, because we both are onlook for opportunities to get away with toxins and also we do not want to increase the electricity bill.

My kid is having her summer holidays right now. So I get time to do lots and lots of drawings which was not I had analyzed. She has been so very supportive to me, won't bug me while I am like away, on my workdesk. I am in tears as I share this unconditional support from her. Yes, but I know in her heart she really misses me, and kind of feeling lonely. And so, that's why I decided that, from this week everyday whatsoever I would take some time out exclusively for her. I have two advanced private lessons coming up this week, inspite of being hectic, I just want to commit to her that and let her know that 'mumma is listening'!

Today, after almost 19 hours of working on the computer, with this website, I wanted to relax, so I took out my half done A4 sheet and mixed colors paying all attention to the process of creating that piece. I was enjoying it so much, that I don't even want to wait for anyone's validation about it!

Isn't it fun, when such moments struck in a day??๐Ÿ˜Š

Happy Tangling ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’œ

Chank - Tangle Pattern

My TanglesAishwarya Karthik Darbha2 Comments

On one fine morning, while I was practicing watercolors on a piece of scrap paper, I thought of using another pattern "African Artist" as my first layout on the piece. But accidentally, I forgot the whole step out, and this new Tangle "Chank" appeared. I named the Tangle Chank, for its shape reminded me of a conch shell. I checked some conch names and shapes that matches with this pattern, and came across "Chank". The name Chank also synchronized with the sound in Shankha (in Sanskrit language). Shankha is of ritual and religious importance in Hinduism and Buddhism. Shankha also has ayurvedic medicinal properties as the powder derived from Shankha has calcium, magnesium and iron.

I simply love shankha for when its blown in all our Hindu Temple, it immediately calms down our senses. Also, as kid, I always loved to keep the shankha close to my ears, as we could hear tidal waves blowing out of it.

So here's the step-out for my Tangle Pattern Chank

This tangle pattern can be used as ribbon or border and also you can play in circular forms in Zendala(R) as in Zentangle(R) Method.

20 Handmade Invites

Welcome to My PageAishwarya Karthik DarbhaComment
So when in January 2018, we were about to have a big Birthday Party celebration at our home, I just took the opportunity to create 20 Handmade Invites with Tangles on it. I had just then received #giveaway gifts; water-based pens by Tombow USA, Tombow TwinTone Brilliant Pens and their drawing pen set - from the TANGLEPOD. I was very excited to use them alongwith my other artist grade pencils.

So, I grabbed my 20 invite cards, small Zentangle Tile sized artist cardstock 3.5 inches, and took out all my set of colorpencils, water-based pens, Derwent Inktense pencils and my favourite water-brushpens that works amazing when I have to work on tangles.

Special Mention here: My daughter created one of the twenty tiles for her favourite brother.ย 20180115_172911.jpg
