Welcome to Freebie Friday and this week’s art project:
DIY Elegant Silhouette Art
Susie E Caron
Silhouettes provide an easy and elegant way to do elegant art for anyone.
Get your kids and your elderly parents involved. Throw an art party and do it together. Even doing it all by yourself can result in wall art for you and gifts for your family and friends. (Check out my art blog for more about this.)
Where do I get a good silhouette subject?
For your silhouette subject the world is full of ideas. Do you want cartoons for children? Select something from coloring books. Would you like an animal or pet art? Use your own photos, those of a friend or out of a magazine. If you want silhouettes of your kids, put them in a bright light and trace their outlines onto paper taped to a wall. There is no limit to what you can find.
What to do for a background?
For your background there are no rules. Backgrounds can be white with silhouettes in color or in black. Backgrounds can also be black or any color you like. Use a color you like and another for the silhouette. The only rule is to have fun.
How to put it together?
If you want ideas, just download the 3 png's below. Then print out what you want to use. Cut out the silhouette and apply to any background. Frame and hang up or give as a great gift. That’s it!
One more thing.
When you finish, I’d love to see your creations, so take a photo and share in comments on my Facebook page on Tuesday or Thursday’s threads. https://www.facebook.com/SusieECaron.Twee/
I can’t wait to see your creations.
