While at home waiting for the storm to pass, I figured it would be a great time for a small project. I had these white wooden frames from Pier 1 in our dining room and I took them down when I repainted the room.
I originally had a damask fabric framed but the colors didn't work anymore. I was trying to think of what I could use as artwork for the small 4" x 4" opening. Then it occurred to me that I don't have any fun artwork of our dogs, Damon and Casey. I always loved silhouettes being used as artwork, so I searched for a good photo of both dogs that I could freehand and use as silhouettes.
|I found this fun photo of them that we took one day in the car on our way for a hike. It's hard to wrangle two 90 lb. dogs for a photo op.|
|After freehanding their silhouette, I filled in the silhouette with a black sharpie marker.|
After trimming the 4" x 4" artwork, here's the final product. You can do this with any photo. It took me no longer than 10 minutes to create custom, fun artwork.
