Scrapbook Trends 2011 – Silhouettes

Silhouettes showed up quite a lot at CHA Winter 2011.  A classical form of the silhouette is traditionally shown in an outline of a woman, man, or child's head in black and white, but a silhouette can made be from any shape and in any colour as well.  

Are you looking to get in on this trend? You can make your own quite easily.  Take a profile photo of  someone, hold it up to a window and trace the outline onto a piece of paper.  Cut that out as your pattern and then transfer onto a piece of solid cardstock. Cut it out and use it to embellish your page. Another quick and easy way to get a silhouette is to use your Cricut Expression or other die cutting machine to cut out a shape.  Instant silhouette! If DIY is not your style,  here are some examples of new scrapbooking products depicting the silhouette form:

Hambly Screenprints has "Portrait Gallery Silhouette" available as rub-ons, overlays and papers for this CHA.  See one image below.

Maya Road has chipboard shapes and stamps coming out this CHA of silhouette shapes called, "Portraits".  As well, they appear in their "Cameos" series too. See two images below.

Jenni Bowlin Studio is introducing some silhouette rub-ons at this CHA as well.  See a couple of samples below.

    These are great resources for pre-made silhouettes, but I think this is the kind of thing that you should definitely D.I.Y.

    I still remember having my childhood silhouette drawn by my pre-school teacher via the light from the overhead projector. My mom still has the felt silhouette made from the tracing hanging on the wall in her kitchen. I think you can create a great nostalgic memory both in making the silhouette and in having it in your scrapbook for years to come.
