Maybe it was because I didn't have the right spot to hang one. Then the other day I started playing around with plates for a plate wall and the light bulb went on.
You see, after I finished painting a dresser on a whim, it became clear that something new was needed for the walls as well. I remembered seeing a tutorial on how to make a quirky silhouette plate, I just don't remember where I found my original information.
Before I share the newly painted dresser and plate wall, I thought a quick explanation of how I made my silhouette would be fun.
First take a picture of your model...its ok if she seems unhappy about it...your project will still turn out ok.
By the way, we got a siding delivery the other day so work will be starting on the house soon!
I had my picture printed as a 5x7 and cut it out adding some detail to the end of her pony tail.
Then I traced the picture onto scrapbook paper found at Michaels and cut that out. Using a paint brush I applied a thin coat of mod podge to the center of my plate and pressed my silhouette in place with my fingers. Oh yeah, I added a tiny strip of paper for an eyelash since my picture didn't have one.
After the first coat was dry I painted another one right on top of my paper silhouette. That's it...let it dry and you're done.
