Art for Adam

Adam’s room is decorated in red and white, with some adorable gingham.  I've been looking for cheap farm-themed art for the shelves, so I made these silhouettes using clipart from
I copied it into SBC+3.0, used the wand on the cut and fill ribbon to get rid of the background on the clipart, colored the clipart white, and added a heavy shadow from the format ribbon. I had some frames that my sister in law used to decorate at Adam's shower, so painted them white and put them on the decorative shelves in his room.
The website also had silhouettes of dancers, a variety of animals, fireflies and caterpillars, etc. So it could be used for almost any room! I may make some with the "plants" for my living room.

I printed these at the handy little Kodak machine in Target.  Fast, but HORRIBLE quality!  I will be reprinting them through digital.creativememories.com.

When I designed them, I used the same shade of red on each print, but IRL, the red around the turkey looks BLACK!  (Plus, my turkey, pig and sheep are too big.)

But overall, I think it’s pretty cute!
