New Henna Tattoos

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.

Ive become a bit obsessed with nautical stars. The star inside the circle with flowers is inspired by a dream I had.

Ogim Art !!!!

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.

Hand made cards ...

I belong to two wonderful yahoo groups, Card Crafting Divas and Happy Stampers, and we swap cards with each other. These are a few recent ones that ive made.

Craig took this at my mother in laws Fourth of July picnic. Just the top of my hand though.
