Paper Bag Art

Posted by on Feb 6, 2012 in Crafts | 0 comments

Stretching my creative muscle, its always nice to work off the body and do some art. Here I took a regular Kroger paper grocery bag we used for groceries and used my Copic Markers , white Prismacolor colored pencil, and the fine tip Faber-Castell art pen to create this. I really like how it came out. It will be hanging up at the Wurst Bar in Ypsilanti.

Christmas Cookie Party!

Posted by on Dec 20, 2011 in Crafts, Henna Party designs | 0 comments

As a henna artist, I fair well. As a chef, however, I do not. This year I thought I would try my hand at the latter. I had a cookie exchange party for a few of my friends & family. We had some AMAZING cookies and the food I made even went over well.

I made a mac & cheese muffin recipe, a nutty-sweet brie & spinach cheese swirls and a cheese plate I am PARTICULARLY proud of on my Katie Brown cheese plate.

The cookies that were made were just too good. We had double chocolate peppermint cookies, chocolate chip, sugar cookies, nanaimo bars (which won Best Tasting of the evening) , cannoli, Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake that my husband had delivered here, snowball cookies, snickerdoodles, peanut butter cookies dipped in chocolate and rolled in peanuts etc etc etc YUMM!!

Singing carols & eating yummy treats with your friends and family REALLY makes the holidays come alive. I just love this time of the year .

Without further adieu.. here are the pictures to feast your eyes on:

Henna on a Pregnant Belly

Posted by on Dec 9, 2011 in Henna, Pregnant belly | 2 comments

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE to decorate pregnant bellies with henna? Since its usually a large area I am designing on, my clients and I get to chat about babies, toys, diapers and all that fun stuff. Another amazing aspect of doing henna for a baby belly is getting so see little feet & arm movements while you’re working. So adorable. Well, here is a boy baby belly design I recently did. The mommy-to-be loves lines and dots & flowers, but she wanted It to represent her little boy, so she choose a cute elephant for the middle instead of the floral design.

It took about 45 minutes to complete.

Prepare for a Henna Appt.

Posted by on Nov 22, 2011 in Henna | 0 comments

A question I am frequently asked is “How do I prepare for my henna appointment?” Here are a few key things to remember before having henna done and how to care for henna:

1. Henna stains the best on clean, dry skin. Please do not apply any lotions or oils to the area where you want your design. Its a good idea to shower and exfoliate before your appointment, too.

2. For brides, make sure you have someone to assist you after your appointment if your arms, hands, feet, legs will be covered in henna.

3. Be sure to eat, use the restroom, take out your contacts, etc BEFORE we get started doing your henna since it will be very difficult to do these tasks after the henna is applied to your hands.

4. Remember that henna takes anywhere from 10 – 30 minutes to totally dry depending on the environment and amount of henna applied. Be mindful of this before deciding where your design will go. The less you move before it dries, the better. You want to avoid smearing and premature cracking of the dried paste.  You’ll want to leave the dried paste on for as long as you can. The longer it stays on your skin, the darker you stain can get. At least 2 hours but overnight it best.

5. When the paste eventually falls off, the design will be a light orange / yellow. It will oxidize over the next 24 – 48 hours to be a rich dark brown / mahogany color.

6. Avoid scrubbing the area with water or soap. Apply a natural oil such as sesame oil, olive oil or a waxy body balm like Mama Bee Belly Balm from Burt’s Bees.

7. ENJOY the pampering experience of having henna done!

Henna in Ann Arbor

I had the privilege to work recently with Ann Arbor photographers Robin Sloan and Mike Frieseman, fashion hair stylist Sandy Bambi, and three lovely models, Jessica, Karin & Nadia.

Getting the opportunity to collaborate with this great group of artists & models really makes what I do such a dream career.

Mike & Robin’s low-key / high-key work really captures the delicate henna lines on the skin perfectly.

Here are a few sample photos from the shoot:
