|Found here. You know this room!|
Now I know people have been making silhouettes forever. But whenever I googled the process, it involved using photoshop (which I do not have). And how do you get a 16 month old to hold-still long enough to make it the 'old fashioned' way???
So I just decided to do it the way it made sense to me. There are probably more efficient ways. But this worked for us. Here is what you will need:
-black card stock
I had my girls sit still (turn on the tv to help!) and took a photo of their profile. Having a window or light source behind them seemed to help illuminate their little faces.
Then I inserted the photos into a Word document and made each picture big enough to fill an 8.5 x11 document.
Next I printed out the enlarged photos.
And then I traced them on black card stock and cut those out.
To show off them off, I decided to place them on a newspaper covered background, like the pic above from Jones Design Company. So I used mod podge to adhere the newsprint to a piece of cardboard. And then I used mod podge again to attach the silhouettes.
And here is the finished framed project! But now I am thinking they may need bows.
There we go! Now they are finished!
Are you ready to see the finished room? Promise I will show you on Wednesday.
