When I think of Valentine's Day decor, I immediately think of silhouettes. I fell in love with this family silhouette portrait months ago, originally seen here and here.
Here are the silhouettes of my girls. I basically used Diane Thompson's tutorial, but mine are made from scrapbook paper, not fabric.
They make me smile. You can also make smaller versions for cards. I made a set for the grandparents.
I had good intentions to make silhouette Christmas ornaments using the Lee Valley's wooden Christmas balls, but I didn't get to it - definitely next year (when my littlest one has more hair!).
Also, I have not finished a silhouette of my labrador.
See this post for a lovely roundup of silhouette tutorials.
Finally, I can't write about silhouettes without mentioning the lovely ones found on Nie Nie 's blog header. You can read about her inspiring story here.
Have a lovely weekend!
