Honoring Lakshmi

Bohemian Bazaar... *le sigh*

I really love this paper. To me it's like a candy display. It's sweet and juicy. It's like freshly ground spices and the stuff of life. Beautiful and vibrant. It's an Arabian Nights fairytale or Hindu celebration.

With that in mind I've created this ATC Honoring the goddess Laskshmi.


Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity, fortune, and the embodiment of beauty. Her face is calm and kind. Golden coins flow from her hand, bestowing good fortune.

A video tutorial is available for making this card and I've created a set of back tags you can download here. Here is the complete supply list...

Hindu goddess image (the one used is from a painting by Raja Ravi Varma)

You can check out additional photos of this project, along with a slew of other cute cards, on the Graphic 45 blog.


  1. Very striking and interesting. Just read your profile and I agree, the instructor was dense to have said "art is not fun." And yes I do believe in fairies too!

  2. Gorgeous. I love those papers, the colours are divine.

  3. I agree it's like candy and fruit all mixed into one gorgeous palate!
    You just amaze me with what you come up with!

  4. I was just wondering......have you ever considered doing a tutorial class for a fee on making your small stone houses? I would love to learn to make one for my daughter. Just a thought. Thank you

  5. Sieglinde if you go to this link:

    There's a video tutorial on how to make them out of paperclay.

    Good luck!
