When I read this piece by Sweet Paul Magazine I was instantly transported back to grade school when our teachers would line us up & sketch our silhouettes against the wall…

The DIY versions in Sweet Paul Magazine are decidedly more modern and adorn everything from lampshades to throw pillows. I love the way he uses them in such unexpected ways, juxtaposing them against different colors and patterns or playing up their simple, graphic nature in stark black and white. Especially sweet are the silhouettes printed on old pages from books.
