Silhouette Tutorial.

03 August 2010
I knew when I did the big re-do of Finnegan's room I wanted to include a silhouette, mostly for me to remember he really was little at one time.

I'm terrible at Photoshop {see? #14}, so most of the tutorials that I found were too complicated for me.  Instead, I went old school. 

I made Finn sit on the table with the window behind him {I shot into the light so he would appear darker} and took a series of photos.  He sat perfectly still for about two and then notsomuch.

Then, using Microsoft Word, I pasted the picture into a document and made it as big as the page. 

Then, I made it into greyscale, reversed the image, and printed it onto bright orange paper.

Then I cut it out carefully & pasted it onto grey scrapbook paper.  You could even use a fun pattern if you'd like.

It took all of 10 minutes from start to finish and it looks super cute.  I may even do one of Monty if I can get him to sit still for a minute.

Awesome. And easy enough a not-so-fancy gal like me could figure it out.

SO cute! I love that he looks like he's laughing in the sillouette.
