Henna in Ann Arbor

Posted by on Nov 2, 2011 in Henna | 0 comments

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:

Bridal henna in Michigan

Bridal Henna in Michigan

Hello!

Here are a few new bridal henna designs that are original designs I created. I did a video recording of these 4 arm designs that I will upload to YouTube soon and post here, too.

Meanwhile, here are the still photos I took. The designs are a mix between Indian and Arabic styles. I love to blend the two styles to make a beautiful work of art.

Here in Ann Arbor, the weather has been so nice. I am thoroughly enjoying this fall weather.

I should add I am going to be at the Rust Belt Market in Ferndale, Michigan doing henna on October 16th from 11am-7pm. https://rustbeltmarket.com/

Henna Dress- How To

Posted by on Sep 28, 2011 in Crafts, Henna | 0 comments

Hello All!

I got this simple navy blue cotton dress for $0.80 from the thrift store! It was a great buy, but a little plain for my taste. I saw some tutorials for bleach pen decorating, so I went out and got a few Clorox Bleach Pens at the supermarket.

The bleach comes out as a paste and since I’m a henna artist, it easily translated into a medium I am already comfortable working with.. :-)

I did one side at a time. I put a piece of cardboard between the two layers of the dress as I carefully squeezed the bleach onto the dress. I just free-handed the design. no planning involved here.

I let the bleach sit on the fabric for 5 minutes then immediately washed it with cold water in the tub. Then I ran it in my washer on a quick spin so it came out slightly damp, but not dripping wet.. and repeated the process until it was all done!

I just feel like the design I did made it into a permanent piece of henna art!

and here are the pics! c&c welcome!!

This is henna I did on Maralyn for her Warrior Dash. She wanted decoration on her body for her marathon she was running. I think we did a great job picking a design that was feminine, yet had an edge.

Two Tone Henna

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

Experimenting with two tone designs. The flower in the center was done three days ago. The design around it was done last night. Then this morning, the flower was touched up. The result is pretty interesting.

I really love how red this henna comes out. Also I should note, the paste was only on my hand for 1.5 hours. I added some lemon juice to the dry paste and let it dry again, then a half hour later I removed the paste. The henna still took so well for just an hour and a half.

From The Henna Page
“For the bride, the mehndi (henna) day is a very important day. The house is decorated with flowers and filled with friends and family members and there is music and dancing. The bride’s feet and palms are decorated with beautiful, intricate henna designs. As the henna artwork signifies the strength of love in a marriage, the bride makes an effort to keep it on as long as possible. The function ends with friends and family sitting down to
an extravagant dinner”

Here is a label I drew a few years back for an Alkaline Trio compilation for a friend.. too bad I labeled it before I burned the CD, then when I burned it, there was an error. SO the CD has no music on it, but it still looks pretty neat :-)

Its a little monster jumping for an ice cream cone. – enjoy
