Silhouette Art

I've been wanting to put some silhouette art on my walls for awhile now. I just had to make the time to get the pictures and make them. My mom took pictures of everyone aside from myself, Ammon & Sharon and just emailed them to me. I then opened the pictures in Photoshop Elements and deleted the background. I then printed out the pictures in black & white with my printer already sized to the correct size for the frames they were going in. Then I cut them out in black paper using the printouts as templates. I also added some grey papers to some of the frames to give them a little more interest than black and white. I think they turned out really neat! I love that you can tell who each person is! I love them! They look so good in my dining room on the wall!
Here they are all together.

I guess I forgot to take a picture of the one with Ammon & I. You can see it in the picture that has all of them in it. I bought most of the black frames from Wal-mart and a couple of them were at an outlet store for super cheap. All-in-all, it was a pretty inexpensive craft!
