Who hasn't had fun with sun print paper? While elements of nature (leaves, branches, etc.) are the usual sun print favorites, why stop there? Ohdeedoh
reader Gillian sent us an e-mail and shared her DIY for some terrific sun print silhouettes. You don't have to be Man Ray to create these fun and simple beauties.Gillian writes on her Web site
, "Since it's spring there are no end of little flowers and plants to make sun prints but I had been toying with the thought of making silhouettes and the idea of using the sun print paper to do them popped into my head when I saw the paper sitting there on the shelf."
Gillian took a photo of her kids' profile, and printed them on heavy paper. After cutting them out, she applied them to the paper and voilà -- instant sun print silhouette.
