Henna Mehendi Design – My long lost hobby

Henna designing or mehendi art is a beautiful art and loved by females. I have attempted, failed, reattempted, failed again, but never lost hope in creating a perfect design with mehendi. Here is the last attempt of mine, which I would rate myself as 6 on 10. Although not an expert, but I hope to reach there in the near future with numerous practice and many more attempts.

Alright, there are many characters in the design, the peacock, woman carrying a pot and a leaf to end it all.

Here goes how I arrived at the final design.

Let’s start with the lines so that we know which character comes where…
