❤ Rainbows Galore! ❤

Another day at the ‘office’ for me! Getting ready for another face painting teaching session in Leicester I restocked my homemade one strokes and rainbow cakes.

Absolutely adore this colour combo:

Cameleon Bollywood pink (my absolute favourite colour!), TAG magenta, Cameleon banana yellow, TAG lime green, FAB deep ocean, DFX essential blue

And once the paints are made up, this is what can be done! The possibilities are endless – rainbow butterflies, one stroke rainbows, rainbow fairies and more! Embellishing/ texturing designs with stencils makes them look extra special. This star stencil is made by BAM.

Baby giraffe Baby Bump!

❤My latest pregnancy bump painting ❤

Loved painting this mummy and baby giraffe from a side angle – made a really lovely change from face-on bump painting and definitely something I’d love to paint more of!

Belly art is a beautiful way to celebrate your baby bump! It is truly unique and personal to you, making your maternity shoot a story within a story ❤ I can paint pretty much anything you like, so let your imagination run wild and get creative! Perfect as a gift to yourself, or as a gift for a baby shower/ girlfriend or wife. Please get in touch with any questions livilollipopfairy@gmail.com

♪♫ Sheet music ❤Lovebirds❤♫♪

I absolutely love painting on sheet music – the older, yellower, tattier the better! These Lovebirds on sheet music were painted as specially requested commissions – the first on “You are my sunshine” was from a husband to a wife in Jersey, USA! The second identical set was commissioned by a mother for her twin daughters ❤❤ Currently taking more commissions for my sheet music art  and vinyl record art ❤ and have several on sale in my online Etsy shop www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LiviLollipopShop

❤ ‘Insta’matic photos ❤

Currently in the process of updating my product photography to fall in line with this modern Instagram trend! I’ve always liked stark white backgrounds to highlight my work but now experimenting with warmer, cosier context shots. This more ‘human’ touch seems to be more appealing, as it allows people to imagine what my items would look like in their homes. What do you think? xx http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/LiviLollipopShop

The story behind the art…

Probably the thing I love most about what I do is learning why someone bought a particular piece from me. The story behind the art. Chelsea Gurss, the lady who bought my beetroot vinyl, wrote to me and I just loved her story so much! … “I am so excited to get this. It is for my husband’s birthday. He does this thing when a book has touched him in a certain way. He wants a piece of art work to remember the book. He just read Tom Robbin’s Jitterbug Perfume and beets get left on people’s doorsteps. So, I couldn’t think of a better beet piece of art then this. There was a lot of lame beet paintings out there. Thank you for making an awesome one”. ….. “We love our piece. It fits perfectly in our house. Thank you so much.”

And here it is, hanging on the wall in their home in Texas, USA!!

❤Face painting classes 1-2-1 in Candyfloss Castle❤

Absolutely fallen in love with teaching face painting!
Just taught a wonderful, talented lady in 2 sessions and had such an amazing time. We worked on teardrops, tiger stripes, one stroke flowers, double-dipping and much much more! Sample faces were used to illustrate how these techniques can be used in a design. She even wrote a super sparkly review for me!!  Thank you Jane
“Today was my last face painting lesson with Livi, I am so sad it’s over. It’s been great. Livi is amazing, such a natural talent, fabulous teacher and wonderful person. I feel so lucky to have been taught by Livi and would recommend her to anyone who is just starting out and wants to know the basics, or if you have experience but would like to really refine your techniques. I couldn’t recommend Livi highly enough.”
