I have had the most wonderful time adorning this mama and her daughters! Yesterday I spend about 3 hours working on the mama, down both arms and across the chest, incorporating requests for columbine flowers.
Her daughters came today, and I spent about 1 1/2 hours on each, incorporating their spirit animals. I really love hearing about why kids like certain animals, feeling that energy in them, and artistically representing that on their skin. The older daughter chose birds of prey, which we ended up having owl & phoenix represent.
The younger daughter had a long list of sea creatures she adored, and after hearing her requests I incorporated a whale, turtle, octopus & otter. I love how they are just swimming down her arms.
