Silhouette motifs just have that ability to stir the imagination. What's the appeal? We think it's as much about what's not seen in a silhouette: the chance to fill in a story for ourselves. These are three silhouettes that inspire us to do just that...

The papercut up top is by artist Elsa Mora. We love this silhouette because it's filled with patterns that hint at a story.

These life size silhouettes jump right up onto the wall in this room designed by Sheila Bridges.

This print of children and birds is from Art and Ghosts' Etsy shop. Check them out for lots of fantastical prints, not just silhouettes.

Each time we're inspired by silhouette projects like these, we're left wondering, "Could I do it myself?". With a good guide or stencil and a lot of time, silhouettes are the perfect look to achieve by DIY.
