my thrifting adventures and thought the frame on this picture was simply the best. I liked the picture but I knew I could turn it my something okay into something beautiful.
All I needed was a printer, some contact, a glue stick and black paint.
1.I searched for a silhouette picture on the net and copied it to a word doc.
2.Enlarge the picture to A4 size before printing.
3. Cut out the silhouette and glue it to a piece of contact.
4. Cut out around the outline and you will end up with a contact sihlouette.
5. Remove the picture from the frame and placed the contact picture in the centre.
6. Paint the whole picture black with acrylic paint and let it dry.
I reframed the picture and there it was. Ain't it pretty?
So easy and so effective. I was so pleased with the end result that I've actually started 2 more projects using the same technique.
