Rangoli: Line kolam with Wet rice maavu (batter)

This line kolam can be easily put. It does not take much time.No need of putting dots. Only thing is you need a smooth surface without slop. If you prepare the Maavu and keep it in the FRIDGE, anytime you can put it.In the night when all go to sleep, you can clean the place where you want to put this kolam without any disturbance in a few minutes.Ne need to worry about anybody stumping on it. The wet kolam will dry and when you wake up in the morning and open the door, your kolam will be smiling brightly. This will stay for 2 or 3 days, will not get spoiled by wind.
Preparation and how to use the maave to put the design is given in detail by our friend Jaya Mohan, in her comment in my earlier kolam ( you can refer my Gallery).

Rangoli: My new rangoli

Dear Latha madam,
My name is Sahana, Rajamma madam's grand daughter. I am 9 years old studying in RGPSchool, Singapore in 4th standard. This is one of my rangoli desgins. With my grand mother's guidence I put this rangoli and coloured it myself. I got this inspiration because of the wonderful rangolis or kolams created by the ikolam members.I also got tempted to put my rangoli after seeing Pavan's designs. I have started creating more colourful rangoli designs. Please comment to my first rangoli design.
