I decided to go with a fish theme this time >}}}}}> The blue color that can be seen a bit is from the transfer paper. I transfered some of the major design elements and then did the rest freehand. I like the koi on my palm but im not too thrilled with the waves by its tail. Ah well, live and learn. After i finished my design and it dried i sprayed it with lemon juice and sugar that i mixed and added to a spray bottle. Then Craig wrapped up my hand. Im really happy how it came out =) Ill probably glue some gems on the eyes of the fish on the back of my hand.
Craig did a great job of taping up my hand to keep the henna paste on while i slept. I also put a large sock over my hand to keep it warm. Heat helps the stain, or so ive read.
This was taken this morning after about 9 hours of having the henna paste on, its already gotten darker and will continue to darken over the next two days.

This is what I worked on this afternoon. I bought those Keller Creations panel pieces a while ago and never made anything with them. I also planned on making a scrapbook when we got Ogim but never did. Hes a year and 4 months and i had more fun making those panels than scrapbooking.

Yesterday at my mother in laws 4th of July picnic I got to paint on my cousin in law. She wanted a swallow between her shoulder blades.....though...it was hard for her to sit still, and afterward the tattoo got messed up but it was fun to do =)
