Silhouette complete!

I found my camera! Yay. I have to apologize to my son because he didn't take it, it was buried deep beneath top and bottom couch cushions.  I also found various other items too and coinage. Alas, my camera is found and I can continue to picturesquely document life! =)

In my last post, I blogged about some decorating ideas I had for my sun room. One of those projects involved creating a silhouette of Logan. Well I did it! Note that it's not a traditional silhouette, I definitely added a twist to it but nonetheless I love it. I love it even more because I made it!
I'm still trying to figure out if it's straight, unfortunately if it's not I can't do anything about it! It's completely adhesed!  I used a paisley cloth, from Hobby Lobby, as the background. The silhouette itself was traced onto a black bazzill paper using a 13 month old photo from when we went to the botanical gardens. His hair was soooo curly and big and I love it, so that's why his head has "hills".  Ha! To hold everything down I used Elmer's spray glue. I read that using spray glue was better because it kept from swelling and/or warping.  I used stickers from Creative Memories for his name. 

On a side note, last post I blogged about a website that provided the opportunity to print free art. The website was hard to navigate and I wasn't extremely thrilled with it, so I apologize if anyone went to it and felt the same way!
