Silhouettes revisited

I did silhouettes before for the hallway. and I still like them hanging there. After reading a post on Chasing Cheerios Wednesday I decided to let the girls have some fun with silhouettes. I took their pictures, printed them out and drew them onto contact paper. I cut them out of the contact with a razor blade so I could use both the positive and negative silhouettes. I stuck them onto watercolour paper and a canvas. Then I let the girls have paint and paintbrushes. After they had filled in all white space I peeled off the contact. They thought it was so cool. I really like them too.
