Pokemon/ Pikachu Pregnancy Bump painting

This Pokeman/ Pikachu bump painting was probably one of my favourite baby bumps yet! The design was inspired by baby’s big sis, who chose Pokemon and Evie as the characters, and “all the colours” as the super bright rainbow background!

These awesome art-in-progress shots were taken of me by my lovely client as I was painting her pregnant belly! I’m just loving capturing all my art at the moment at each stage of its creation, so I was thrilled to receive these photos.

This beautiful little cheeky monkey brought her Pikachu onesie for the maternity photoshoot and I just adored how it brought the painting to life! These photos are a beautiful, unique way to create a special bond between existing siblings and their soon-to-be-born little brothers or sisters!

❤ 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.

Can’t wait to create some new face painting designs for my next face painting training session, coming up really soon! Bye for now,livi signature

❤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.”

Teaching my very first face painting workshop!!

Last month I taught my first ever workshop. I was invited to be 1 of 2 tutors at Face Paint BOOTCAMP – an incredible, intensive one day training session in Belfast, Northern Ireland, organised by Stacey Kilpatrick of S.A.K. Designs. 30 participants were divided into 2 groups for two back-to-back 3 hour workshops (with a lovely leisurely lunch in between!) It was an absolute honour and privilege to be ‘billed’ alongside the phenomenal Teresa Mullin.

Leading up to the workshop I was so so nervous! I’d never taught before and always dismissed it as something beyond my capabilities. Every time I thought about it I felt sick with nerves, terrified I’d be no good! BUT somehow I managed to ignore those voices of crippling self-doubt and I DID IT and I loved it!! The feedback given afterwards was amazing and unbelievably heart-warming (see below photos), proving that my nerves were totally unfounded. I couldn’t have hoped for a more wonderful, positive first experience of teaching 😀
