I’ve realized very late in life that I AM AN ARTIST, and that there’s absolutely no other way, in which I can exist happily and lovingly 🙂 I always thought as a kid, that I lacked the creativity & am only good at imitating stuff. That’s how I got started with one of my first passions –Mehendi 🙂 I would imitate designs and keep practicing it. Sometimes on my hands, most of the times on my feet & at other times on my mom’s or sis’s hands.
I’ve been in love with this awesome thing since I was 13 🙂 Since the last 2 years or may be more, I’ve lost touch with my fav activity (May be cuz there are many more exciting things to do when I’m free like spend time with my husband n family, watch movies, cook 😦 , travel…) I want to thank you Bec, from New Zealand, for not just visiting my blog site but also reminding me of one of my long-lost passion – Mehendi.
I’ve always wanted to specialize in traditional bridal designs, but the thought of investing a lot of time attending the classes & then spending more time practicing – to improve my speed, my ability to visualize designs, my finesse, etc seems like a lot. This is the very reason I’ve been putting it off & today I just realized that it’s been a really long time since I practiced.
So a small way of renewing my long-lost passion is make it a part of my blog 🙂
I’ve been lucky to design and apply mehendi to 4 brides till now & every time I was excited at the opportunity of putting it for a real bride (not just for practice), I would forget to capture those exciting moments of my happiness (& hopefully those of the bride too ;)) There’s just one memory left with me, of my bridal designs n that’s posted below.
Am introducing a new category on my blog, for my Mehendi designs & kickstarting this category with the design I made for Hannah for her wedding, on 6th March 2011.
Posting a few more snaps of the practice mehendi done at home. They are all done on my sis in law, Addu’s hands 🙂
Another one 🙂
Another one, a symmetric design 🙂
Okay, the next pics that I’m gonna post hereafter will be only after I start practicing again which is very soon 🙂
Thanks again Bec, for your interest in Mehendi 🙂 Am glad you asked me 🙂
