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!
