So now I’m going to take my basic door hanging
and I decided that I wanted to do a very traditional hand design. So I traced my hand onto the
door hanger. I’m going to explore some of the options that I have for making a original
hand design. I have a book that has some of the traditional Indian designs and these are
usually wedding adornments. They are very detailed. I’m not sure that I want something
quiet so detailed for this. So I think I’m going to go into the Arabic style designs
which are a little bit more floral and softer and flowing. Here is a good example of some
of the Arabic style design. What I”m going to do is adapt this style to my door hanger.
I have drawn it on with pencil.
