CBC Day 8

Creativity Boot Camp, Day 8, random word prompt
Ornament
I drew around my hand on a piece of card and doodled the Mehndi design on it with a brown fineliner, then I cut it out. I put a bit of background paper on the page and swirled paint all over it and then stuck the hand down over the top.
I love henna tatoos! I work with ethnic women and some of the designs the ladies do on their hands are works of art in themselves.
