I started out by painting the canvases white. Now, I don't know WHY--I should've just painted them the color I wanted them to end up, right? Maybe I was thinking I would paint AROUND their white silhouettes, I don't know...but it was a lot of white paint!
After the white dried, it was time for color.
This project turned out to be a challenge for my Boy and me...we couldn't figure out the best way to get their shadows onto the canvas. We tried...and failed.
My brother got Noble a cool light saber night light for his birthday, and Daddy hung it right where Noble asked him to hang it. I was most upset because I really wanted the silhouettes to stand alone on those walls...but my sweet husband reminded me that it's not MY room and they need to have a say, too. Sigh. But, I do agree. I guess. :) (And Noble uses that night light every day AND takes every visitor in to see it...seems only fitting that it has pride of place.)
So that's it. I had some friends over last week and we were talking about the kids' silhouettes, and I realized I never actually posted. There it is, girls!
