Be inspired by the colors of India!

What I maybe love the most about India are all the colors. And when I found these two color-stores at the Tripolia bazar in Jaipur  I immediately felt in love. They each have about 24 different types of colors, for example dying and painting pigments. I guess I will buy every single dying and painting color at the end of my stay. Until now I've bought a purple fabric color to dye a shirt which was discolored during the washing and a pink neon color for painting but it's also suitable for the skin. Both colors were very cheap and the pink color will probably last forever.

Random Photoshoots

Today I stumbled upon Michelle's Blog A million miles from here and as I did I really missed the shootings I did back home with my sister. But I also wanted to share my pictures with you. Since I don't have all my photos on my laptop I can only show you a few from different shootings.

Tutu-dress

As I told you in this post about my love to ballet dresses, I planned to make kind of a ballet dress. Actually, I started creating one but I wasn't able to finish it before I left :( So what I'll show you is my not-sewed concept. Again I'm sorry that the pictures are not that good, but they weren't meant to be published when I took them. Also it's not a 'real' Tutu but anyway!
I bought the self-adhesive rhinestones at a discounter in Berlin but I'm gonna glue it with jewelry glue I guess. And I will sew a bra underneath the white body tight to make sure it's not see-through and it fits me. I wish I could finish it right now!

This is my first project for Fine Arts in India. Sorry for the quality, but I don't have a scanner in here :(

Be inspired by the Gates of the City Palace of Jaipur

Now that I am in India for 5 months I get a lot of inspiration from everywhere. I try to share as much as I can with you!
My first Indian Inspiration Post is about the Indian architecture or basically about the patterns which are used to decorate the City Palace of Jaipur, where I live right now. I was really fascinated of the gates there because they had such nice paintings on it. They represent the four seasons in a very beautiful and unique way.
I also have a book about Indian Patterns which my father gave me and I do like it, but since it's only black and white I want to collect all special patterns I see and make a book out of it. I hope I'm not gonna be too lazy ;)
