Saturdays Are Fun: Silhouette Inspiration

Source: google.co.nz via Julie on Pinterest


Today’s post is inspired by my mother-in-law. On her wall in her living room, she has a very charming vignette of frames surrounding a doorway, and these frames have random silhouettes in them, something similar to the photos above. These are random silhouettes, not silhouettes of anyone she knows. They are very simple, just a frame, a white background, and a black silhouette of a person. Yet they are enchanting. Everytime I see my mother-in-law’s display, which is about 3x’s a month, I think of all the silhouette kits in Tangie’s store! Please click on these links to see the amazing kits by Tangie.

This made me want to see what layouts in the SBG Gallery had silhouettes in them. Here are a few by talented Scrapbookgraphics’ members, using Tangie’s silhouette products.

My workspace is a big over stuffed chair that looks out our patio doors into our backyard. Our yard is full of trees that we planted to honor the loss of two pregnancies, the birth of two daughters, and the death of my MIL. It’s hard not to look at those strong (yet fragile) trees and draw a parallel between my growth as a wife, mother, and person w/the growth and care of our trees!
