Custom Silhouette

There is something about silhouettes that is both so fresh and modern, yet beautifully classical.  Once you have a silhouette that you are happy with you can use it to make custom stamps, put it on pillows, bags or whatever else floats your boat.  The thing that was always the challenge for me since I am not at all artistically inclined was getting the actual silhouette. We just discovered this really cool method and I gave it a try.  Turns out it really is super easy and foolproof.

So much so that we have added it to our drop in activities list.
