Clearance isles are the bane of my existence. This has already been established. But I couldn’t resist these little beauties
They are pendant frames, though to big for me to imagine actually wearing it as a pendant they are still very small.
I knew almost immediately what I wanted to do with them, I just needed cooperative subjects.
So I sat Mr. Smith down for a picture. Then I had to get him to take a profile picture of me. That was a little harder since it was me trying to direct him so that he was exactly beside me. Height difference and all
I then printed off those pictures and cut out the silhouettes
Because the pictures were taken from different distances and different orientations (portrait vs. landscape) I then used my copier to shrink them down to appropriate and equal sizes.
Then I just transferred the images onto the tiny canvases and used a fine sharpie to fill it in
As you can see my hair was a little to big and wild to fit in an oval frame and the texture of the canvas made using a sharpie not ideal. I’ll likely go over all of this with paint. Perhaps when I’m more comfortable with the medium given this week’s endeavors. It’s been all down hill since last week.

Love these! How big do the frames measure? It’s hard to tell the size from photos 😛 Love the silhouettes!
Oh! I didn’t even think to get a comparative shot. They are about 2 1/2 inches
Too cool! Your silhouettes are adorable 🙂
