Newest Project

Lately I have noticed in magazines that silhouettes are really 'in.' In many photos, I would notice they wouldn't even be for sale; just background noise. Also, my friend, Ashley, posted some pictures of her family silhouette-style, and it made me start thinking that I wanted some of my own.

Below you will see my latest creations. I'm so proud of them! I covered canvases with material, then painted Avery and Braden's silhouettes onto the material. I love how they turned out! I still have some tweaking to do with my mantle decor, but for now, here it is!


I also put them on my Etsy site, hoping people might want one of their own. (Not one of Avery and Braden, but one of their own chillins', obviously.)

That's so cool! I love it! I've been wanting to do these for a while for Jack and Riley, but just haven't done it yet. Yours turned out great though.

That is beautiful! I love it! I haven't seen that around much, but I don't think I have been out much looking at that sort of thing. You are so talented!!!

Jamey, How did you update your "Blogging Buddies" list to show the current posts? That is so handy!

They look great and I'll like to have them when the kids are grown.

Shelley, if you go to the 'layout' part of blogger, you can 'add page element' and it's called 'blogging buddies.' You have to type in their web addresses, but once you do it once, it automatically updates. I love it because it saves time and clicks!

They look great! I have also been reading about the silhouette trend. I guess I'll refrain from getting a silhouette of Toby to put on my mantle. ;-)
