Silhouettes: An Old-School Craft That's Still Cool

Silhouettes: An Old-School Craft That's Still Cool

We've been noticing a lot of silhouettes in our house tours lately. We thought they'd disappeared but they seem to be making a resurgence. They're cool, graphic and easy to do yourself, given a bit a patience, a little time, a strong light and a willing subject...

Or, of course, there are a number of websites that will transform a photo for you, like Simply Silhouettes, which we've blogged about before. Try the traditional, cameo-style profile or, perhaps, something a little more contemporary. And, as we've seen from our house tours, they look great in groupings.
