Silhouette Project: Take 2

Last spring I used this awesome tutorial for making E's silhouette to put on our mantle. Seriously-- easiest way to do them, ever!

I loved how it turned out SO much! I figured if one is great, two more must be better! So I got to work. Here's what I needed to make my two more:
 - Two black and white photos {5 x 7s} of profiles
-Black craft paint
-Small to medium craft paint brush
-surface to paint

First cut out profiles from the rest of the picture

Then cover each entirely with black paint

Let 'em dry {you could pass the time eating some know, if you like that sort of thing.}

Frame 'em, hang 'em and enjoy!
I purposely put us this way because they coordinate with our sides of the bed--which we have very strong opinions about and may or may not have have battles in the bedroom over them. ;) I'm still looking for the perfect piece to hang in between them. I have an idea already in mind, but can't seem to locate it in stores. But, they are so cute that I don't mind if we live in earthquake country and they may one day end up on our heads.

And yup, did these puppies awhile ago...the same week in which I chopped all those lovely locks off. I loved these too much to redo!

This is the first time I heard of doing sillouettes that way and how darn clever! Perfect timing I have been wanting to do some for a hallway picture gallary. My hubby and I have strong opionons on which side of the bed we sleep on as well which is why i accused one of my co-workers of being crazy when she explained to me her and hubs switch sides every 6 months {to change things up a bit!}
