Mandala Design with the Rocky Hand by Shahema

Hi there !

So I’ve finally gotten around to my Mandala henna design for beginners (done with my non-dominant left hand – i.e. the Rocky hand).  It’s taken a few weeks, but here we are.

So picture this … you start off the day bright and early thinking it’s going to be a great one; but then the balance shifts.  Suddenly, everything you do turns to dust.  One henna attempt after another, from 9 in the morning to 7 in the evening, and they All.  Go.  Wrong !  You throw your henna cone down.  Enough !  Can’t do this anymore.  Put your head in your hands and close your eyes.  You breathe long silent breaths.  And then you look up …  there’s no way I’m ending the day like this.  You pick up the cone one last time, and this happens:

Yep, it was a long day; but the worst days often do turn into the best ones.

So finally, I have a range of options for you: you have the stain progression pics below, but then you can watch the video on how to do this design either with the YouTube version (which has a voice-over with hints and tips), or the Vine version (which is super short), and you can watch the preview of the YT video from my Instagram video post should you want to, as well … take your pick(s) :-):

And that’s it.  My next YT video is available from 6pm (UK time) this Wednesday and it is a tribal one with shading.  If you want to make sure you don’t miss that then please subscribe.  Finally, I’m happy to reveal that I have a new henna design waiting to be unveiled.  It’s a tattoo design with roses inspired by Beauty and the Beast.  The YT video for this design will be up on 11 March 2015 at 6pm (UK time).  I will reveal the design on Instagram before then 🙂 …
