Confessions: I'm a Bandwagon Crafter

So, I guess I'm just not as creative as I might like to think that I am.  And you probably wouldn't believe me if I said that I loved the following things BEFORE they became major crafting trends:  cottage style, burlap, the colors gray and robin's egg blue, monograms, ruffles, hair flowers, and silhouettes.  Seriously, I did.  I've had an inspiration file on my computer for AGES that is full of silhouettes and cool letter Gs.  Really.  Whatever.  I know I'm telling the truth.  You may think that I've spent too many hours on internet craft blogs when I tell you that my bedroom is painted gray with crisp white board and batten panelling, burlap on the floor, and I'm working on a really fun silhouette project {cuz y'all know how I love me some cheap, graphic wall art}.  What. Ever.

I am jumping on the silhouette bandwagon right now so I thought I would share these printable images that I created tonight.  They're sized for 11x14 photo prints because that what fits the frames I picked up at Goodwill.  Click on each image to go directly to its download location.





I can't decide if I like them better adorned or not.  I'm open to opinions.  Enjoy the images!

{I'm also working on a Jane Austen inspired set of dishes right now, with silhouettes on the salad plates and my favorite quotes from Pride and Prejudice written in  pretty script around the edges of the dinner plates. Brent thinks the idea is somewhat ridiculous, but since I got the set of white dishes at Goodwill for $3 last weekend he just rolls his eyes and lets me have my fun.  However, he doesn't know yet that these silhouettes are going in our bedroom so . . . I may have some 'splaining to do in the morning.}

  5. I've always (really - not just trying to be cool) loved these silhouettes... my great-grandmother had some hung in her house when I was REALLY young (they were of my mother and her siblings) and it was a tragic loss when they all disappeared. (that's a story WAY too long for your comment box)... I would love to have some made of my kids!

  6. Visiting from UTTAD... I like the embellished versions :-) I've always loved silhouettes too. My sis is an artist and has done the old school kind but I'm not that talented. I made one of my daughter via photoshop and it turned out great.
