Today I will show you how I make my silhouettes for the family “tell a story” picture wall. The gallery starts with when my husband and I started dating up until now. I wanted to include some vintage-y touch to it since I ADORE everything cottage and vintage. This is the easiest way to make them, I know there are other people that use Photoshop but I still do not have that program, so I did it the “homemade” way.
First, I took a picture of my son against a window. The picture was already very dark. Then using Picasa I edited the picture using the “pencil sketch.” Using a chisel sharpie I traced the contour of the face and then filled in the rest.
I still have more things to add to the gallery, but it is good for now.
