~Pregnant skeleton~

I have been trying to decide whether or not I would dress up this Halloween? I always want to because I LOVE Halloween, but I didn't feel like spending a ton of money.

I Thought and thought about something fun I could do with my baby bump. I thought about painting it but Brad is out of town and so without his help I really couldn't swing that creation on my own.

As I was looking at Millie in her skeleton pajamas the light bulb went on! A PREGNANT SKELETON!!!

I would like to pretend I had a brilliant original idea but when I googled it as usual it became less original....Someone had already thought it up! (of course!)

But I was ok with that because I really can't draw so I needed some ideas to look at.

The work began! I found some images, drew it on freezer paper, ( I had never heard of this but WOW, I am hooked now!) cut it out, ironed it on, painted my design, pulled it off, fixed a few areas, and there you have it!!! My cute costume this year!!!! I am TOTALLY proud of my artwork!

Draw what you want on freezer paper

Cut out with the best tool on the planet!

freezer paper magically sticks!

Paint pattern

I made the lines a little more crisp with black paint.... And painted the toes that were to little to cut.
Wallahhh!! I must say, I am PRETTY STINKIN' proud!
