Sunday Art and Silhouettes

I like the look of using silhouettes on art journaling pages.  So, today I made some.  I found some pictures on the internet that I could extract from the background, filled them with white, stroked them with black to outline and then printed them on some $store manilla folders.  Then I used an exacto knife to cut them out.  This did 2 things.  One, I can use the cut out as a mask to add a sillhouette to my creations.  Two, I now have a stencil to use on my creations.

 Cutting the figures out was a pain, but I like the results!  :D

Here is an art journal page I did using the bottom stencil shown above.

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. Thank you for sharing this great idea. I am going to see if my KNK Maxx machine will cut some silhouettes out for me.
    Blessings to you.
