A Little Thursday Fun!

I've never really been a big blog follower but when I decided to start my own I figured I should do some research. I found some really interesting blogs that are very inspiring, including one from the Jones Design Company. She posts a lot of little DIY projects that are really cute. There was one on silhouettes that I thought looked fun so I did a few and I think that they could be really cute hung up in a group with some fun frames. I didn't follow the tutorial exactly but if you don't know Photoshop then her tutorial is a good jumping of point. They didn't take me any time at all once I had the picture of myself that I liked. Try it out and see what you come up with!

I love the patterns and colors that she used so I tried the same, a modern take on an old classic

The classic look.
A little taste of the 70's, haha.

This one started out red but looked a little too much like blood, ew!

I've always loved the simplicity and elegance of silhouettes. Since they are so easy it is definitely an easy decorating fix! I think I might have to explore this further. I might redo the top ones and print them out to hang up. If I do I'll definitely post pictures! I'm definitely going to retake a photo to use, in these I was smiling and I think it makes my mouth looks a little funny, haha.

Have fun,

I really like the black and white because I can totally see YOU in it - very clear. Love the splattered green too - definitely think that was a great choice over
