Welcome to ikolam Ms.Ananthalakshmi! Smile

Your first submission looks wonderful. Beautiful trumpet shaped structures in your kolam. Thank you for sharing your design here with all of us. Smile

Very nicely drawn. How did you get the yellow colour to the wet flour? Did you add turmeric? It would have been better if you had drawn the eight petalled lotus at the centre, not the six as the rest of the picture has 45 degree rotational symmetry.

Regards! - mOhana

Like Sudha, I also like the trumpet shaped extensions!
mOhanaji, I think Ananthalakshmiji has used only white wet rice paste.
It appears yellow because of the light or filter.

I am really excited to see my kolam in the home page of "ikolam".thank you all for the comments.In our city(coimbatore),during festive seasons usually people use "SAANI POWDER"
to make the floor smooth.Usually that powder is mixed with cowdung and used.It is only a coloring agent.I mixed that powder in plane water and applied on the floor-that is the reason for the yellow shade thank you all

Mohana sir thank you for your valuable point on symmetry!!!I will try to avoid this in my future creations.

There is a saying 'when you blow your own trumpet the tune is always false' - but you have proved that wrong because your tune is excellent. What a way to begin in ikolam - very unique Smile
