a paper rose

paper_rose_for_aaraju

It was a busy day and there were lots of work pending to be done at home; yes of course 'with deadlines'. And all of a sudden I had to start with a paper rose project for my sister Aaraju.
I hadn't done this before, so there came an obvious oracle - Google! I tried for few hours searching way to make it, tried with some. They didn't work out.

Finally I tried it myself, with a natural algorithm. [Means: trying to make it remembering how it looks like]
It didn't come up as a rose, but it looked like a flower. A friend of mine said it looked like an exotic orchid.
I hadn't had a chance to work on water colors since quite long and it was a chance. Used a long forgotten toothbrush to spray the colors.
It was refreshing -  indeed.
She woke up till 12.30 midnight, and it was worthwhile.

I remembered when once my friend said - "When you don't have a manual, you have to use your brain".

Better yet, don't waste your time in manuals as long as you can get it done just using your brains.
