Bella Parade '13 : Post # 9

7:27 AM

Hiya all!!!
What a wonderful day! It is Ganesh Caturthi! The day we bring our beloved Ganpati Bappa home for a day and a half! I am hoping this year he'll bring peace, love and contentment into our home as well as hearts!!!

This year, like 3 previous years, I am on the panel of a local NGO that encourages people to chose green or eco friendly options to celebrate Ganeshotsav. The first and foremost of that is to opt for an eco-friendly Ganesha idol. Normally it is made with Plaster of Paris which is non-biodegradable. We are urging people to go in for one made from clay or paper mache!

I did not buy the idol, but made it myself this year!

I made it using Newspaper & Cornflour! It turned out pretty good!

So may Ganpati bappa bless you all this year with everything that you've desired and worked for!

Coming back to the Bella Parade!

Yup, you're right! Yesterday's color was Eggshell!

Here are my combinations

For a monochromatic color scheme, I'd combine it with Green Apple and Christmas Green.

For the complementary scheme, I'll pair it with Christmas Red
