I did a lot of image searches online, looking at what other people did with their casts. Sooooo many beautiful casts out there with beautiful whimsical designs on them. I decided to go for something a little more realistic and a little symbolic. The flower is a water lily. At the time I was just drawn to it for some reason, thought a rose might be more appropirate but nope I decided on the lily, just before bubs due date I discover July's birth flower is a water lily! must have been a sign that she wasnt going to come late June. The leaves around the edge are birch leaves for protection and new beginnings according to Wiccan symbolism.And then there is the photo of the parents-to-be. Looped around us is the umbilical cord that connects us to our baby.
While it's technically finished tomorrow I will spray it with a clear vanish and Axel will add some device so we can hang it in bub's room. I am very pleased with the finished belly cast. Now we just need the baby to put in the nursery. I'm sure it won't be too long now. Here are some photos from different angles.
Yep there are little stars on my nipples! Thought it would be a laugh!
