Easy Silhouette

It's so hard to believe that the 4th of July is almost here, especially when it is cold and soggy outside. I'm longing for the sun so I can paint my ever-growing stack of things to be painted.

Last week I showed you my gallery wall.  Part of my plan included a silhouette of my daughter. I've been wanting to create one forever and this wall seemed the ideal place to hang it. As I've mentioned before I have a ridiculous amount of scrapbook paper for someone who doesn't scrap.  So this project was perfect to use some of that paper.

Here is what I started with

Probably one of my easiest and quickest projects. Love the immediate gratification.

I printed the profile picture of my daughter then simply traced the outline onto the paper and cut out the shape.
A little glue and the frame...

  1. Hi Katy,
    I linked up on tip junkie after you.
    That looks like a really easy way to silhouette! I like your gallery wall, too.

  2. Hey, I love this idea! Thanks for the tutorial...I have been thinking of doing this for a while now! Awesome--now I have no excuse! :)
