Here are my Inspirations / Ideas around the theme 

Since I have named this challenge group in the name of our Country, I would like to depict Indian culture and hertiage through this art of Quilling.

First idea is on quilled Kolam / Quilled Rangoli

Kolam is a Traditional art of Tamilnadu. Kambi Kolam / Chikku Kolam - My mom's favorite art. In this art form of kolam, dots called pulli are arranged in rhombic, square, triangular, or free shapes and a single, uninterrupted linear or curvilinear line, called the kambi, intertwines the dots. I have tried this art in quilling.

For more details about this art visit my blog Adhiraacreations

Second Idea is on Quilled Warli art

India has a rich tradition of folk arts. Tribes are the custodians of these arts and they live in interiors of various states.

I am very much interested in Warli art and it is the beautiful folk art of Maharashtra. This art was first explored in the early seventies.I have tried this warli art in quilling

A Quilled Warli Art - It has circles & triangles 

All entries have to be posted before in by 6pm Tuesday 15th August. Your entry must be new and don't link your old creations.
