 Sneak Peek of a new project!

This summer I am working with two lovely ladies : Jamie Smith of Hair Peace in Owosso, Michigan and Stacey Jenkinson of Stacey Jenkinson Photography  . We are collaborating for a secret project (that won’t be secret for long) and I am excited to show you a sneak peek of the henna crown design I did . I really loved working with this sweet model – she was so fun and already had her head shaved like that *love* .

That’s one of my favorite things about being a henna artist – each client is has a unique form to work with.

The design starts to develop itself based off the person. 

Here’s the sneak peek of my latest henna crown design for our model.

Henna Drawing

Lately I’ve been wanting to draw on ol’ fashion paper with a marker so this is what I came up with! Of course, its a henna drawing.

I love to practice henna designs on paper.

I think this design would be so sexy on the back between the shoulder blades or for a baby belly design.

Henna Horse Tattoo Design

Posted by on Apr 30, 2014 in Henna, Henna Party designs, Michigan henna tattoo, Private appointments, simple henna design, tattoo | 0 comments

More and more nowadays people are coming into the salon to try out a tattoo design in henna before they have it done permanently – which I think is a great idea. I can tell you first hand, trying out a tattoo with henna first has helped guide many of my clients in their decision. I’ll even meet with the same client, multiple times to try the same tattoo design in different spots and sizes.

Today I did a henna horse tattoo design trial for a client.

She picked out the horse tattoo from Pinterest and I replicated it in henna.

She really liked it and plans on having it done permanently .

Fun Floral Henna Tattoos on the Back

Posted by on Mar 25, 2014 in Henna, Michigan henna tattoo, Private appointments, tattoo | 0 comments

Spring is officially here on the calendar .. but here in Ypsilanti, Michigan  I still see a hefty coverage of brown, dirty snow still.

(snow, I love ya baby.. but you just gotta go)

I am feeling Spring – with my seedlings going strong, I felt inspired by flowers and seeds & came up with fun floral henna tattoos on the back of my dear friend. I love how the only space I had to work with on her back was the perfectly sweet little teardrop . I really like having a CREATIVE space to work with . Plus, this sweet girl just got back from a 3 week exploration trip in New Zealand & Australia so she has a nice glow to her skin. (She has such a pretty face, too)

I have been itching to do some creative henna tattoos on the back & in other sexy places. I have a creative leg henna design in mind, I just need the right gams to pull it off… coming soon.

Without further adieu, here is the sexy henna tattoos on the back that will have my friend’s lab coworkers curious . . .

Breakfast at Tiffanys Themed Bachelorette Party DIY

Posted by on Nov 25, 2013 in art, Crafts, Weddings | 0 comments

Tiffanys Themed Bachelorette Party

Hello everyone! If you have been wondering why I have been pretty silent these past few weeks is because I have been in my studio preparing to throw my sister’s Breakfast at Tiffanys themed bachelorette party . I have been planning this party for 3 months which game me a good amount of time to devote to all the DIY touches . We had about 15 ladies that came and we all had so much fun! I can’t share all the details since it was a BACHELORETTE party, but it’s safe to say we all had a rowdy time ;-)   We stayed at the Marriott  suite here in Ypsilanti and  had a car service drive us to The Wurst Bar for a very special Drag Queen Bingo that I arranged. Then we headed back to the suite for party games, dessert, drinks & more entertainment.  The Tiffany’s party theme was so much fun to add fun touches to.

 

Here are the pictures I can share:

Breakfast at Tiffanys party DIY dessert table

 

I assembled each of those little Tiffany blue favor boxes, wrapped ribbon and tied them. Inside were rings from Wholesale Fashion Square  that everyone wore . A party favor that everyone can wear and enjoy after the party is really important . The 4 Tiffany blue champagne flutes filled with white Jordan Almonds.

I ordered the Tiffany’s boxes and bought white stain ribbon and tied each of them after I placed the rings inside on their ring holder.

I added edible luster powder & pearls to the cupcakes and desserts.  I also added those lovely diamonds to every table surface . The cupcake toppers I made with my handy circle cutters and printed some icons I made in Photoshop off the computer, glued them together with a blue toothpick in between them and viola!

Tiffanys blue alcoholic drink mix – yummy! I added my turquoise necklace to the top to add more flair to the drink dispenser. The martini drink glasses really were a big hit. I added a little tiffany’s blue ribbon to them.

I did a few watercolor paintings to hang up around the hotel suite – I gave this watercolor chandelier to my sister.

Watercolor chandelier painting to add to the theme – also, inexpensive party decor ! I made those hanging paper mobiles using a circle cutter and thread .
