Solstice Sunday 2014

Saturday is the big parade, but the festival continues on Sunday! As if doing henna all day Saturday wasn’t enough, Amber and I came back for more. It was a lot less hectic and we got a chance to walk around the festival and see some other booths.

We managed to trade henna tattoos for some floral headbands! Here we are, drinking buckets of lemonade with giant lemons bobbing in them:

New Face Painting Business Card Image!

So excited about this new face painting business card image! Thanks to my sisters Eliana (Dia de los Muertos Skull), Angelina (Rainbow Peacock) and little Mikayla (tiger) for their patience in taking this photo. I’m crazy about it. I used some of my fun new materials, like shimmer powder and hair chalks.
