Maverick created this adorable little project for hanging above her school desk. We started with a blank canvas, then painted it a solid purple to prep for adding our silhouette. Depending upon what colors you choose - your silhouette could be either dark or light. Tape the paper silhouette to the purple canvas.
Maverick chose the subject of her painting - her tiny chihuahua Tahoe. Then we went to work finding the silhouette online in an images search. We searched for - girl silhouette, or chihuahua silhouette. We happened to find a girl who was walking another dog, so we swapped out another image, so that Tahoe was accurate.
Then Kelty painted around the sides and Mom touched up each stage of highlight. Then we removed the paper silhouette. Canvas came from Amazon, great deals for a big pack.
