: : You all may have noticed I'm not posting any pictures since
Sirius
: : NYC. I had thought I was pretty good, impressing the locals
anyway,
: : then when I saw the designs the other "pros" were knocking out, I
was
: : almost ashamed I had been charging for it. After getting home
and
: : looking at my old pictures again, I realized I wasn't as bad as I
had
: : thought at the time, but I did sit down to think about why I
wasn't
: : better. I especially thought about Heather's design. I'd never
: : before seen something so intricate and gorgeous, not to mention
she
: : covered up a design I thought couldn't be done. I thought a lot
: : about this. I've been doing henna on myself for ten years and
people
: : who have been doing it for half as long are doing stuff that's
hugely
: : better than me. I knew I would have to make a change, but I
didn't
: : know what until just now.
: : On a whim, I rolled a cone like Heather showed us at Sirius NYC
and
: : started doodling. I had a decent design on the back of my hand,
but
: : I was going to be working at an Indian restaurant and I needed to
be
: : impressive, which the back of the hand wasn't to people who are
used
: : to bridal mehndi. WOW. The result was the picture posted above.
: : This is far and away the best work I've ever done. I'm
remembering
: : that I started out using a rolled cone and doing lovely work, of
: : course nothing like this! I took the cones to an event and did
some
: : terrific designs that I know would not have turned out so well
done
: : by any other means. I finally feel like I'm doing the art I
always
: : knew I could. The link below has both the pictures from Sirius
that
: : inspired me and some other pics I took this weekend. There's
also a
: : picture of Max and Quinn, for those of you who wanted to see them.
: : Thank you so much to everyone here who has been such a great help
and
: : inspiration!! Also thanks to Alissa for her help with the page.
: : Lauren
