The Stella Silhouette Project–Now You Can Own Your Own Silhouette!

  • Posted on May 10, 2009 at 9:14 pm

Help me, I think I’m turning into a crafter.  After completing the $3000 purple sweater,I made this silhouette of Stella to mark her first year:

The entire time I worked on it Larry made fun of me and asked me if I wanted to go back to Kindergarten. However, I am really happy with the final result! I even got some eyelashes and stray hairs! This is definitely not the work of a kindergartner. The cutting alone is at least a fifth-grade level!  And the painting and gluing!  Hello, I have skills beyond kindergarten, yes?

My plan is to do a silhouette every year for her birthday. And then move into a house with a really long hallway so I can line them all up.

This project was significantly less time-consuming than the little purple sweater, so I WILL be offering my services to others. Leave a comment if you would like a silhouette–either of Stella or your own child/grandchild/niece/nephew/neighbor–and we can work out the details.  Prices will vary but it won’t be $3000, that’s for sure. And I won’t be quitting my day job.
