Creativity 521 {linky Party} #13 - Belly Painting

By A Happy Mum @A_Happy_Mum
Remember I was sharing about some creative uses of my baby bump and that I might consider using it as a canvas for belly painting?
Well, turned out we really did it. Just in time before I gave birth.
But no, if you are thinking that we got professionals to paint picturesque drawings on my bump, truth is we only engaged three amateurish painters who just wanted to have some fun - Angel, the hubby and myself.

- Face paint and brush
- Baby bump
- Imagination
Creativity 521 {linky party} #13 - Belly paintingThe big sister was indeed thrilled to have an unusual canvas to show off her painting skills. 
Creativity 521 {linky party} #13 - Belly paintingShe knew that her little sister was inside my tummy and was so sweet to say that she was going to draw meimei and write her name. Even though no one could tell, we could imagine with her.
Creativity 521 {linky party} #13 - Belly paintingStroke by stroke, bit by bit, it was actually a good way to train up her patience. Oh, did it feel ticklish? A little, but more than that, it felt warm and blissful.

Creativity 521 {linky party} #13 - Belly paintingThanks dear, for taking time off to accommodate silly requests of mine and for still doing a great job out of it.
And now, time to see the final artwork! Guess what, they all begin with the letter 'A'!

Creativity 521 {linky party} #13 - Belly paintingI have to say it was quite a memorable experience and for all we know, we might or might not have the chance to do it a second time. So I was glad we enjoyed it and that we have these precious pictures to serve as keepsake.
