I was always a patron of dark earthy colors of maroons and browns (natural Taurean instincts?! ) yet surprised myself with some new found love for the aquamarine colors of blues, teals and turqs. Its weird how my shop cart ends up with all this blue stuff out of nowhere….Maybe it is because my roomie’s favorite colors are blue or maybe it’s the sea finally calling me 🙂 Either ways, I am a happy mermaid for now !

When I went commercial with Aure, I was working on 3 projects for different clients simultaneously. While working , I used to feel curious as to which of the 3 works will finish up and become my first sold art. Watercolor splash Durga maa for Preeti made it to the title. And being attached to Goddess kaligamba, it was a positive vibe- a sign I’m thankful for.
Today being Mahalaya, join me in digging up the archives and getting devotional 🙂

You can print it as a greeting from your local printer for a fancy old-school envelope treatment or simply attach it to your email.

Set of 4 tags for your giftbag. You can change the size,color, design, add your own words (Could make it a thank you tag like “thank you for coming- the Ranjan’ s” )
How this works: I will send you the artwork as a jpeg file to download. The file will have the 4 tags in a same page.You can print it any number of times at home or as a photo at your local printer ( I printed this as a 5×7 photo for less than a dollar) … Then you can cut the tags using scissors , punch a hole and your good to go. Easy peezy ! Again, if you do not have the time for it- I can print and punch that hole for you 🙂
Now,your return gift packaging has to be awesome like your golu, right?
Aure is here to design your personalized gift label. Just drop in a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your golu theme and paperbag color and I will help you create the label to greet your guests or print a thank you note over it. Possibilities are endless!
I can send the file to download,you can print out the artwork, cut and stick to the paperbag.If you do not have the time for it, I can do it for you too 🙂

I was raised by a man who’s favorite subject at school was Botany.Smelling the terrace potted jasmine,sunflower and the little bunches of exotics from trips to the crowded flower markets take its place in my fondest of memories. Even if I have the luxury of indulging in fresh cuts often,I don’t seem to get enough of these simple soft pastels … on crossroads between a lilac and bubblegum the shade has been inspiring me to take pictures and watercolor in my sketchbook..The power they possess over you and the sensations they create can only be understood by someone in love with the fl aura and fauna kingdom.I just wish they were immortal 🙂
Before you judge me as a sadist from the headline, I will get to it straight. In a graphic artist world, creating a fade or aging any art is called a distress. It is just a click away in the design software to apply distress on any object and make it appear faded to glory.
Few weeks back,I was trying to make some samples of coloring sheets for Aure : the kinds you can take home and paint yourself, while color sampling a sudden urge made me try distressing manually by hand. I took some pebbles, sponge and fork and tried to scrap of the base ink in a harmonious pattern. The results impressed me.Lord Natraja looked totally mystique!
