The Hand of Fatima

Continuing with the de Meng style,  here is this months workshop at the craft barn, an altered box inspired by my visits to Bahrain, featuring the The Khamsa or Hamsa, (in Hebrew: “Khamsa” in Arabic: Hamsa means “five”) is an icon used in a variety of Hand of Fatima amulets, charms, and jewelry, to protect against the evil eye.



Just to let you know that starting here on Friday will be a series of step by step tutorials posted each day on tags using inks and media and my new stamps at last, which should be in the shops Saturday onwards… yipee!!

  4. Oh wow, I really like that. Cannot wait for the new stamps to arrive either, mine have been on order for weeks now. Have fun getting messy.
