Step by step Flowery Painted Baby Bump/ Pre natal Art

Summer 2011, I was booked as a baby shower gift to paint Leigh’s bump.

Parking in that area of Norwich was horrible and I spent ages finding a non-restricted space, nipping in as a service van vacated a spot.

Inside, Leigh and her friend Di, who booked me, were waiting to finalise designs. She decided on a flowery belly, with her baby boy’s name, Caleb, on it. But we had to keep it all under wraps until he made his appearance (late:)) as she had kept the name secret.

Di Smith took some amazing photos of the whole thing and all I’m going to say is I mainly used home-assembled Diamond FX 1- stroke cakes and some Grimas/ Paradise paints for the whole thing.

These are my fave pics from the 100’s Di Smith took. Self explanatory, I hope!

Brilliant booking and lovely ladies but I got back to the car to find I’d totally missed a traffic parking sign and had a car ticket fine that wiped out my fee:(
