Festival of Colors...

12:00 AM

It's day four of the Digit-al Dozen's celebration series, The Digit-al Dozen, Does it All Again! Today's theme was festive! In keeping with my orginal festive designs, I went with an Hindu holiday known as Festival Holi. Festival Holi is based off of a story in Hindu religion which I won't go into detail about but Hindus believe it is a time of enjoying spring's abundant colours and saying farewell to winter. Here is a picture of some Indian people throwing colors into the air to celebrate:

Gorgeous isn't it? It's hard not to be inspired by that! I didn't use powder for my colors because I wanted it to have a really 3D effect so I put various colors of flocking powder onto a sparkly sandy base. I hoped to imitate the bright colors on the sparkling sands of the desert. I hope you all enjoy them!
