Silhouette Project without Photoshop.


Today i'm going to show you my silhouette project I just finished over the weekend:
This is a "silhouette" project, not a project made with a Silhouette machine ;)

 I've been trying to fill this wire thing for months now!  And i know I wanted to do something with the kids.  Then I decided to jump on the silhouettes!

So we are going to do the basic, no-photoshop way today since...i don't have photoshop!

Okay first you want to take a side profile picture of your subject.  Hopefully this doesn't take you as long as it took me since my kids didn't want to hold still!  But finally I got all 3!
Load it up to your computer.

Next you want to tape a piece of paper on the computer screen...

Next you want to take a pen or pencil and trace the outline of the face, head and shoulders.  Get that detail!


Next you want to trim the paper and tape it to a black piece of paper or cardstock and then cut it out!

Don't forget detail!

 Next cut the back paper to the size of your frame.  I chose an 8 x 10.

Stick the head on the paper where you want it.

Next I wanted to write their name and year so I grabbed my vanishing pen and stencil. 

This stuff is cool because it will vanish and you are left with straight journaling!


Prepare your frames.  I spray painted mine with Krylon Bright Idea color.  Love it.

Then you place the paper in the frame and put it where you want it.  I love how it turned out!
