Art Therapy...

My name is Kavita Gandhi and I created KavitaKriti (Creations by Kavita).

My speciality is Indian luxury hand painted silk scarves. Through KavitaKriti my hope is to create awe-inspiring silk scarves with an honest reflection of my Indian roots. Growing up I was surrounded by Indian textiles and embroideries and always marveled at the craftsmanship of what I saw. KavitaKriti is an avenue for me to pay homage to these wonderful art forms and represent them to you in my own way.

Music to my Ears - Crepe silk, Indian luxury hand painted silk scarf

Indian Hand Painted Hand Dyed Luxury Silk Scarves by KavitaKriti
Music to my Ears is a breathtaking pure crepe silk scarf in luscious crimson, mulled wine and port shades. The colors in this luxury hand painted silk scarf are rich and warm and resonate perfectly with the musical instrument motifs in the scarf. The style of the scarf is typical of tie-dye dupattas in India.

An Indian wedding musical instrument motif is painted on both ends of the scarf. The long sides of the scarf are decorated with a henna vine.

Measurements: 10 x 58 inches (25 x 147 cm)

I really enjoyed painting this particular piece. I had my eye on the musical motifs for quite some time but could not figure out what I wanted to do with them.

Now the fun beings. My color palette from the Color Palette Generator

Harmonizing palettes matching colors in my scarf from COLOURlovers

And finally my storyboard :)

Now this was a very exciting experiment. I would have never thought to wear Music to my Ears with aquamarine. The scarf definitely works with pomegranate and plum colors but is a very nice touch to a chocolate or beige attire as well. Yippy!!!
