August: India


IQCG#39 - India


Hi there,
This month we are celebrating India's 70th Independence Day. Its been 70 years for our freedom.
This project is dedicated to our war heroes . Because of whom, we can enjoy this freedom.

Some days back I saw paper sculptures on google by Jeff Nishinaka . From that day I had an itch to try paper sculpture. And was thinking what I can sculpt as a beginner?

So I thought what could be more better than our India gate which is All India War Memorial.

That's how this DT project started.

It took a lot of time for cutting , making small small boxes and giving shapes by hand embossing but excitement kept me going.
For Flag colours I used 3mm strips.















Hope you all will like it and get inspired to create something new.

Cheers!!!
