Yes, I know I just posted yesterday, but I did this last night, and I'm so excited about this new technique I learned from Dude Craft. A couple of months ago, he posted a tutorial on how to do these paper cut portraits. Mine doesn't come close to being the quality that his are, but for a first time, I am pretty happy. Below, is a photo of Kellen that I made into a black and white, then played with a bit to make a lot of contrast in shades of black, gray, and white. Then, I used his ideas, and .........
this is what my result is!! I see things that I should have done differently. Dude used an Exacto Knife. I used scissors. I feel that I have more control that way. Now, I can't wait to do one of each of the grands. I wonder if anyone would buy these of their children and grands. If so, I wonder what they would pay. This is truly more fun than (so I dare say it?) sewing, for me. I didn't think I would ever find something I liked as much as sewing, let alone, more than!!!
I think I'm addicted!!
Don't forget to check the post I put up yesterday, if you haven't already. It shows two more of the Valentine outfits I've made. I have Little Man's pants made, except for a hem. I'm working on a new vest for him. I just don't like the first one I made him. I guess he'll get both and him mom and dad can decide if they like the first one enough to let him wear it. If not, they could put it on the stuffed bear I gave him for Christmas.
