Pet Silhouette Wall Art

25 May

As late as I am at getting on the whole silhouette bandwagon, I was bound and determined to get this little project done and finally scratch it of the ol’ to-do list, and since I already had wallpaper out from this project, I thought now was as good a time as any to whip out this little task and call ‘er done!  I decided to go with a pet silhouette, although others like deer mount silhouettes and portrait silhouettes have caught my eye as well (see more silhouette Pinspiration here).

I started out by selecting a few sheets of wallpaper samples that I liked and a couple of trays I had lying around that I thought would work well with the silhouette cutout:

Then, by taping plain printer paper directly onto the computer screen, I traced an image of Bitsy in two sections (my screen wasn’t large enough nor was the 8 1/2 x 11 sized paper I was using) to create a template in the shape I was looking for – Bitsy shaped, of course:

After tracing her image, I taped the two pieces of paper together adjoining the top half of her body to her bottom half, and then placed it on top of the various sheets of wallpaper I had selected from earlier to decide which one I liked best. After positioning the traced image on top of my choice wallpaper in the just-right-place, I taped it in place so I could cut it with an exacto knife without it shifting:

Then lastly, I sprayed the back of my wallpaper cutout with spray adhesive and affixed it onto the tray with the wood-toned center:

And Voila!  A ctue-as-a-button-chihuahua pet silhouette! I love it   :0 )
