Hand Book

 A few photos for a new workshop "The Hand Book".
The imagery used in this Hand Book developed out of my love for doodling combined and the art of Mehndi, the ancient art of temporary lacework tattoos done with herbal henna. This application of henna as a temporary form of skin decoration is used in India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh as a ceremonial art form which originated in ancient India.
This 5" X 8" Hand Book is a unique vessel to capture daily inspirations, instructions, thoughts or can just be used as a basic journal. This workshop will focus on binding this book and getting it ready for your journaling needs.

Love the look of this one, but then I love all your work! I like to do Zentangles, especially on holiday when I miss my art stuff, never thought to look at the patterns they use for the hand tattoos, will have to have a look. Do wish you could come to the UK so I could take your classes, hehe

Wow that is really a beautiful book. I love journals. I collect them and some I have not even written in yet but I love having them. I love the design that is on that book. You did a fantastic job on it.
