Printed & Framed Silhouette

I posted a video tutorial on Wednesday showing you how to make your own silhouette using photoshop (also works in photoshop elements) and I promised you I would show you my finished product today.

This was the silhouette before I added any paper to it. If you watched the video you'll know that I saved the silhouette as a png file.

Using Paper from Vintage Sprout by the Scrap Orchard Designers

Then I took that png file and put it on a new canvas in Photoshop sized 8.5x11 for easy home printing.
I added a background paper, clipped a paper to the silhouette and added a drop shadow to make it look more realistic. I also added Lydia's full name and the date of the silhouette (blurred out for privacy reasons).

I printed it on my home printed. Looks pretty nice! 

Then framed it and added it to my gallery wall.

You can see it to the far right. Can you also spot the silhouettes of my other daughters?

All products used are retired.
I thought I would show you this page. I made this 3 years ago and I still love it to this day...except for the fact that it's missing one little face. This is just an example of how you can also scrapbook your silhouette.

Now I guess it's time to make a new digital scrapbook page with four little silhouettes!
