Hey everyone

There seems to be an intered in henna art here. For me it's always been a cultural thing so i thought of it as cool but not really crafty or anything...that is untill i saw a request for a henna kit which i made and sent off for a swap

Thought i'd share the photo's i have taken (the ones i could find anyway)...should have included them in the kit...didn't think, oh well, enjoy and if you have any questions, please ask

You can see some of the colour peeking through.


As you can tell, it's difficult to take a photo when one of your hands is henna'd


sorry i dont have any after pics...they came out bright red!

Yeah surprisingly the check pattern and stuff isn't very hard to do and the best bit is only you notice the mistakes

Yea you definately should. It takes a little while to get the hang of it but after a bit of practise, you're only limited by your imagination

Ooh it looks great!  I normally don't like the Indian style of henna too much, but yours is beautiful.  Thanks for sharing!

Oh really? I've always seen it look somwhat like this...hence it being my inspiration. I had a look at your pics. They are pretty awesome too. They look somewhat midde eastern. A lot more simple, and less busy.  I like that too but it's never really been a choice. This is the kind of henna we do for special occasions =)
