LIM #8

**This is my second post of the day. Do scroll down for my other post. Thanks! :)**

Yet another entry for LIM #33 – 1000 Entries – Anything CAS goes!

I was quite taken in with the Modern Basics set when Maile Belles designed it and this was another instance where I was right! The butterfly motif here makes a beautiful design and the possibilities of filling it all up is endless! ๐Ÿ™‚

This sort of represents what we in South India call a “kolam” or “rangoli”. (Guess you can google it!) It is usually made of rice flour and hand drawn outside all our houses every day at dawn and dusk. It is only rice flour as the story goes, because in the olden days, houses used to have mud walls and floors, which were applied with a coat of cow dung everyday, to make it firm and to keep insects out. Since there was no electricity then, the rice flour twice a day drew the insects and ants to outside the house plus small birds could get something to eat ๐Ÿ™‚ The principle behind this is also that to feed either a person or any living organism, is part of our duty as a human being. (Tried copying some pictures but could not ๐Ÿ˜ฆ )

So whaddaya think?? Any Modern Basics converts??? *wink*
