After being inspired by these by NieNie I had to make my own. And here they are so far. I now have to get onto the hard bit of spending money on frames for them, finding frames I actually like at the cost I want to pay. No way I will pay like $20 a frame for something that was very cheap to produce (not including the (wo)man hours it took to make them.)
Thought they could also make a good mothers day present, something different. To make these I took photos of everyone in side profile, printed out the photo, cut around it and used this for the template. Then I used black paint to fill. Very easy - though make sure you have a fine brush for the edges, one mistake, and it won't look like your profile :)
If anyone is interested in having one of themselves (or other family member) made I will be giving one away - just tell me why you would like one. Winner drawn Monday as I will be away for the long weekend.
