Sathya Sankaran

I am SathyaKala, Toxicologist by Qualification and Passionate Papercraft Enthusiast. I am from Chennai, currently residing at UAE. Married to a wonderful friend and we are blessed with an 8 year son.

I have a pulsating desire to do my Doctoral program in Toxicology and meanwhile I am enjoying this hobby turned obsession of ArtsyCrafty Life.

I am inclined towards art forms from my childhood. When I stumbled upon a Food-Art blog in 2011, I discovered my passion for Quilling, which led to where I am today.

I dabble with different art forms – Quilling, Cardmaking, Mixed media and Altered Art. I find that one passion crosses over into the next, giving a different spin to it.

Colors I love to play with: Turquoise, Peachy-pink, teal.

Favorite snacks while crafting: I don’t snack when crafting. Music is food for my soul at this time J

I love: I absolutely love my recent crushes: Water Coloring and Calligraphy. This keeps things fresh and my mind inventive.

My Style: I love pastel shades and my projects are mostly inclined towards Shabby Chic, and mostly Layered. I am more interested in creating textures using various art mediums and pigments.


Nandini Karmarkar

I am married and mother to two wonderful kids aged 12 and 5. I have my own network marketing business and divide my time between family, work and crafting.

I come from a family of crafters. I learnt sewing, embroidery, crochet etc as a child from my mother and grandmother. I qualified as a Textile designer and ended up working as a Costume Designer for films and ad films. I quit full time work when my daughter was born. My journey in paper crafts and card making started when I did my Arts and Craft teacher course where I learnt quilling. I was completely hooked to card making when I discovered Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire and the fascinating world of stamping and die cutting!

Colors I love to play with: I love bright colors and tend to go through phases where I will reach for particular color combos. I love using kraft card bases.

Favorite snack(s) while crafting: I love a large mug of filter coffee made in the true South Indian style while crafting!

I love: I am a total technique junkie. I love trying new things and also giving my own twist to old ones. Other than playing with my craft supplies, I love reading. It is a passion that I share with my daughter. We are both huge fans of J.K. Rowling and Rick Reardon. I have practically all the books by these authors. I also love movies and music.

My Style: My style is very Clean and Simple. I like designs that are uncluttered.
