Hello, my crafty friends!
I'd like you to meet the new Crafty Chica "Bollywood Blue" glitter. For several years now, I've been a big fan of Bollywood flicks - the melodramatic stories, the crazy song and dance numbers, but most of all the amazing shade of brilliant teal that so often appears in the set design and clothing.
That specific shade is the inspiration behind this color. I mixed and mixed different shades until I achieved the right tone. The picture does not do it justice! It's so pretty, I want to cover my computer screen in it! I want to cake my eyelids with it and go grocery shopping!
Here is a new Bollywood-inspired music video by Devendra Banhart so you can see what I mean about the magical blending of blue and green to make what I call Bollywood Blue! BTW: Devendra is Natalie Portman's boyfriend, and she is the star of the video! It's like a three-hour Bollywood movie condensed into five minutes. It has happiness and heartache and really cute visual effects and of course - dancing!
Best of all - the song ROCKS!
