Inspired by JKM's sona pattern http://www.ikolam.com/node/14696?p=1930 I did this kolam on the road outside my house sometime back http://www.ikolam.com/node/16468?p=3143 for which I got unexpected wonderful comments from JKM. Last week I tried the same kolam with kuzhal and this is the outcome. Though slightly crooked and out of shape here and there, still I wanted to share it with all of you to get your feedback also - how is this one friends??
This happens to be my own creation - aimlessly joined dots and combined a chikku bit on the border and this is the outcome - though I am not quite happy with the end product I am uploading for the 9 x 9 collection. My mouse is not behaving itself so I am having a tough time making kolams on photoshop
Here is another kolam which I made couple of days ago for the 9 x 9 gallery. This is quite a common kolam and I am sure many of you may already have this in your collection. Another kolam that I am not too happy about - made in a hurry due to lack of time.
I am sure this would have been almost the first kolam everyone would learn when they start putting kolams. Well this was the very first design I learnt. Couple of weeks ago it was late so I decided to make this hurried (4 - 4 dots) kuzhal kolam with the easiest design and gave it some frills - hope you all like it..
One week of power fluctuation and power cuts - today everything seems to be in place now - so here I am trying to upload my kolam for the 9 x 9 collection. Took this old kolam from my book and made it in a hurry as you can see it is not symmetric on the top left corner. I love the shape of the flowers in this kolam as they look quite unusual.
Straight dots: 7 - 1
This is my very own simple kolam which was made on my shoe rack. After drawing the kolam I decided to add the ear bud touch and was happy with the result (could have been neater though)..
This simple pattern of JKM's was too tempting to avoid and with a small addition to the design this is what I made. I hope I have done justice and made it correctly. Awaiting your expert comments on this one JKM.
This freehand rangoli done with finger technique is being dedicated to all the lovely members of ikolam who have been so supportive all through with their positive comments and suggestions. This was made on the shoe rack where I place my urli with flowers. In fact if you look properly at the picture you will find the shadow of the urli falling on top of the kolam. I started this kolam with a paisley design and continued drawing aimlessly. The final result was quite pleasing to me and hence I am dedicating this to all of you my dear friends. Thanks for the affection now and always...
