The Art of Henna
I have always wanted to make a tutorial to show you guys how henna is done and to talk a little bit about it as many people seem to be so fascinated by it and usually asks a few questions which I tried to answer in the tutorial.

I recorded this myself and applied the henna on my own hand, I messed up a bit because it was a tad bit awkward for me to draw so you guys can still see what I was doing and my hair sometimes got in the way. Nevertheless it was a nice challenge and first time really recording my voice, so I'm a bit nervous about that. I think I spoke a bit too fast though (even though I tried speaking slower). Also the rooster and sheep kept intruding in my conversations.

Please let me know what you think and what I can do to improve so I can do better next time and if you have any questions.

Before and After

The photo to the left shows the mehndi (henna) after it has been applied and the photo to the right is the day after. I kept the henna on for a long time, at least 5 hours.
Drawing and Inspiration
I previously drew this for fun, and really liked the flowers so without thinking the inspiration came from this drawing, with a few little twists.
