Sand Art Rangoli

Hey all..I have been extremely busy with the festive season and plenty of birthday celebrations in my family. This is a rather delayed post but here is a quick glimpse of some of the Sand Art (Rangoli) I made this season. For all those who are not familiar with Diwali, in India this is a very important festival of lights, color, food and firecrackers...Ofcourse lots to do for crafters, chefs and artists also. Cleaning, decorating, preparing delicacies, gifting and vacationing is typically what we all do.

Something most Indian Homes do is draw a rangoli at the entrance of their how like a welcome gesture. Rangoli these days is a colorful sand/ marble powder which is thrown into patterns and shapes to create great pieces of art or design.  Here is a glimpse of the Rangoli I made at our entrance.....
This one was huge 6 X 6 feet

this one was smaller 3 feet...


Come sunset, and we light up with tea candles



 

And lastly, I cant resist but share with u a glimpse of these colorful sugar puffs i made

mmm...yummy!

Yes, if you did notice, this festive I was obsessed with peacocks!!!..I even ensured everyone in my house was wearing peacock- colored dresses!!!
