Inspired from our featured couple’s art in our 2013 Spring Issue, I wanted share a little more about our DIY from Get Crafty — a silhouette art project. (Visit page 50 of our Spring Issue for DIY instructions for a back-painted-glass silhouette art piece.)
Too busy? Stick around, there are plenty of artists represented here, who are willing and ready to create custom silhouette art just for you.
From the sentimental to quite quirky, anything you can dream up could be interpreted in a silhouette art piece. When I saw the unique back-painted-glass piece that our sweet couple featured in the magazine created, I knew I had to make one too.
Sadly, we lost three pets within 9 months of each other, none lived with us for less than 10 years, so each was a shock and are quite missed. While I only have happy memories left to share, I still felt I should do something to give them a new presence in our home.
We’ve got photos, but something about the silhouette showing the cute bent ear of our collie, Presley, captures his personality in a special way.

I love those DNA art pieces, you should click through to see the detail and find your favorite animal. When I was a kid we had a ferret and I just had to share this one in honor of him. Simon, you were the best ferret three kids could have!
