I bolted for the paint supplies.
I’ll probably update Soph’s once she gets some more hair & her head is less bulbous.
(Also fingers crossed I’ll have my master bedroom re-do finished in the next week so I can show you the whole room!)
All you’ll need for the silhouette project is:
- a canvas-size of your choice (40% off at Michaels this past weekend)
- a printed out profile image of your subject
- some acrylic paint
I found some nice side shots of my girls then with a bit of cropping I printed them out to 8×10 size & cut along the outside of the image. (include all those little wispy hair pieces, they’ll look great later)
*tip* If you have a great pic but your child is looking down use the “straighten” tool in your photo editing software, here’s what that looks like in Picasa

Next I’m going to do silhouettes of the mutts. I’m thinking hot pink & lime green on little 3×5 canvases. How cute would that be displayed on a dresser?
Oh, & just in case you were wondering what those books on my nightstand were here’s a close-up…
And the face behind the books…I just keep telling myself that ONE DAY she WILL sleep. Either that or she’ll be old enough to take Ambien.
