Khawab means dream in Urdu. The words on this page are actually part of some lyrics to a song that I really like. The phrase here loosely translates to "Why God, did you show me such a dream when in reality it was meant to be broken?".
For this page I started off with some ink blots and glimmer mist sprays on the background. I then stamped the flourishes onto patterned paper- the stamps didn't show up too well so I ended up outlining them with a bit of India ink. The page border was done in charcoal and the cut out stamped images were outlined in India ink. I then drew on the stars and wrote the lyrics in white pen.

So my very first workshop was this past Saturday and I think it went pretty well. I had a small group of 5 students so it was a nice cozy atmosphere. The time went by really quickly. Everyone started from learning how to draw a straight line in the beginning all the way to creating a beautiful design on their own hands by the end of the 3 hours.
Look at all the gorgeous designs that these ladies came up with. If you would like more information on the classes that I will be instructing please click here.
