Quick & Elegant DIY Silhouette Art
Susie E Caron
When I was about 13 years old, my Mother made me sit still in front of a strong lamp with no shade. Next she traced my silhouette onto a paper she taped to the wall behind me. She repeated this with every family member. My Mother later transformed those tracings into DIY elegant art. I can still recall the black construction paper silhouettes of each of us, carefully mounted onto white paper with red trim all around and displayed above our breakfast table windows. I didn’t realize as a teenager that years later I’d want to teach you how to create art much like those.
You can repeat what my Mother did for your own family. All you need is a strong lamp, paper and patience. (You’ll need it when you try to get a child or teen to ‘sit still’ so you can capture their profiles.)
Alternatively, I have an ‘elegant art project for you to do’ on Freebie Friday. This project gives you or your child an opportunity to do some fun, quick, inexpensive art. The variations are endless for DIY ‘elegant art.’ You may want to hang one or more up in your own home, or give some away as gifts.
What ever you do…..have fun. Art is fun and we all deserve a little fun now and again.
