When doing a bridal application, one of the better things is when the bride is able to fully relax. Sometimes, a bride even falls asleep during the bridal henna application. This bride, tired from a busy week, took the quiet time and did fall asleep during her bridal henna. That's why I had a chance to take some shots of how I progressed with her bridal arms. With just a few photos of the bridal progression, you will be able to see how an artist lays out a bridal design and the application process.
Here is a collage of the progression. Enjoy!
|Start with a major outlining motif. In this design, we did an outline with flowers.|
|Add your design elements. This design featured paisleys and a lot of cross hatch/criss-cross designs.|
|Add your next major element. In order to break up the floral designs, we incorporated a bold band with a geometric filler. This kept the design flow nice and coherent with the cross hatch elements above.|
|Finished design. A little bit of peacock love with whimsical and wispy elements.|
