The above picture is my favorite "puppy picture" of Miss M. Besides her "dainty and elegant" posture, the silhouette is very representative of her. With the whole silhouette decorating craze, I decided to make one from this picture. I made a smaller version where I just traced the photo with wax paper, then cut it out on other paper. Then I made this huge version where I used my overhead projector from school to make it larger and trace it onto paper. Can't you tell this is her?
I'm still working on one for Mr. B, but in the meantime I was at Pottery Barn when I saw these very expensive silhouettes. A random dog:
And a cat:
So I guess this project was on the cutting edge of home decor, and I like that it is personalized for our pooches.
And though we've lived here for awhile, we just finally got to framing some of our other dog-themed posters. This is from The Bird Machine which we also saw during Chicago Renegade Art Fair:He had also created this poster for a New Leash on Life, Miss M's alma matter, fundraiser:He does a lot with dogs and bicycles, and you can see his online store here. I think I'm just drawn to dog decor, but I don't want to include too much and appear like the crazy-dog family. How much dog decor do you have in your home?
