Silhouettes. Simple. Classic.
Silhouettes are one of those things that can be done a number of different ways with great results.
I'm going to show you how to get 2 completely different looks with one picture.
-Take a profile picture of your child.
-Print it out on card stock. (whatever color you want to be displayed)
-Trace the outline of your child's head with something that won't bleed through your paper. (I did this with a sharpie so that YOU could see it, but wouldn't recommend it for your project) Tracing it makes it a little bit easier to see the detail while cutting it out.
- Cut out the silhouette. (That sounded better than cut out your child's head.)
- Use the silhouette that you cut out as a stencil to trace the head onto a painted wooden plaque. Then fill in the silhouette with paint.
- Now take the silhouette that you cut out, turn it over so that the printed side with your trace markings face down and tape it to the front of a piece of patterned scrapbook paper to frame.
