Celebratory pair of hands

I decorated both palms to celebrate geting my Reiki II certification yesterday! The pattern is from one of Amira's books (that style used to really intimidate me).

 

The reason my left hand is a different color is because I did each one a day apart, and since I really needed to shower before going to the Reiki workshop, it got a little bit wet. I also left it on for a shorter time. I think the two tones of color look neat together, though.

 

Another funny thing... I think I did a better job left-handedly. More patience? Or because my right-handed design was kind of like a warmup?

 

My friend Jenny was kind enough to take the photo for me.
