So I wasn't sure if this should be in the home decorating section or the paper craft section, but I figured "it's framed, so I'll call it art"
I've been seeing a lot of old Victorian-looking cameos around on different blogs and in jewelry and such, so I decided I wanted my very own.
My husband and I took profile pictures of each other and I traced around our faces in adobe illustrator. Then I printed the outline onto regular computer paper, taped it to black paper and x-acto'd it out. I just improvised the outline on my little hairdo. I never wear my hair like that but it's about the only way to make your head not
look like a blob if you have long hair.
I'm proud because these are all recycled materials. Free art!
-I found the frames in my favorite dumpster (yes I have a favorite dumpster) behind a craft-supply store.
-The white paper is the paper that came in the frame, I just flipped it over because the back was all white
-The black paper was scavenged from my old college portfolio
I just think they're hilarious because they look all formal and fancy until people look closer and realize they're us! Plus the lamp makes them cast a menacing shadow so they seem all gothic and scary lol
