Silhouette Linky Party

Hello again!  Welcome to the Wood You Like To Craft? Linky Party for
Wendy pointed out that Wood You Like To Craft? is now one. Happy Birthday to us!
 We have had so much fun creating with all of you and look forward to many more wood projects!

Well, Nicole and I were feeling ambitious this week and decided to make a few more silhouettes.
We made silhouettes of our children and we absolutely love with them.  There is something about tracing and cutting your own child's face that is special.  Our kids also got a kick out of seeing themselves up on the wall too!
We found a really easy tutorial on how to make silhouettes at Design Dazzle
 You don't need all the fancy photo programs, we used Picasa's light/shadow controls to whip ours up...
and I even traced right from the computer screen!   
We used our scroll saw to cut all the fine details out in the face and hair. 
 It's really not bad,  just go slow and steady. 
I hung my silhouettes with ribbon and drawer knobs. 
It is fun to see the differences and similarities in each of your children. 
To review the Silhouette week here at WYLTC,
we started off with wooden silhouette bunnies on stands.   
Krystal made an oh so pretty wood shamrock
 covered with hounds tooth paper and tied with a beautiful ribbon.
  Who knew shamrocks could be so pretty?:) 
Melinda, despite some saw troubles,
created these very cool wood vases.  I love tulips, especially yellow.   
Wendy ended the week with some very cute Easter silhouette projects.  I love the Bunny Tales!

Now it's your turn!
Come join the Link Party and share your "wood" themed silhouette!
The Link will be open for one week, so you have plenty of time to create!
