Okay, I get that this isn't a recipe.
Get over it.
This is my creative outlet. Mostly about cooking, but man, I'm an onion with layers. I have my hands in so many pots, it isn't even funny.
Remember the old school silhouette pictures? They remind me of Disneyland, mostly because there is [was?] a place on Main Street that did them.
I love them! I think they have kind of a vintage-y charm that can't be duplicated.
I have wanted some of these FOREVER. Seriously, ask my husband. I'm really annoying about things when I want to be. The problem was: THEY HAD TO BE IN OVAL FRAMES! [Just my opinion, but I think the oval frames are what make them look so vintagey and super wicked cool.]
I have been on the hunt for oval frames forever. Even scouring thrift stores. They didn't have to match, I didn't care if they were puke green; I can paint.
For MONTHS I looked for oval frames, and found NOTHING.
Then, like the mother ship calling me home, they just opened a Hobby Lobby near me. [Why, oh why must the name be so seriously stupid? It's got to be a southern thing. Like Piggly Wiggly. I just feel stupid saying it.] Now, Hobby Lobby is a whole separate post for a separate time.
BUT, I found oval frames there: FOR CHEAP!! $6/ea! The best part was, I didn't have to paint them, they had various sizes, and styles! I was able to find some that had the old school, vintagey look I was going for. You have no idea how much this thrills me. Clearly, I'm easy to please!
So, in about 15 minutes [+/- 17 months of searching for frames], I finally had my sihouettes!
If you need a tutorial for these, I'm happy to help, if you can't figure it out. There are TONS of ways you could make these [including photoshop, which I don't have...I wish]!
Aren't they awesome?
