Large Silhouettes...Plus More!

11x14 Custom Hand-Cut Silhouettes of Elizabeth and Virginia by Silhouette Artist Kathryn Flocken

Susan J. of Fayetville, GA wanted to know if I could do an order for her with multiple pieces, all in different sizes. Of course I was more than happy to oblige! We were having a rather large "rain event" here in Florida, so I was more than happy to do a big chunk of work while stuck in the house anyway.

Basically, Susan wanted her daughters to be showcased as the largest pieces, then have three girls doing several activities as the medium sized pieces, and two little birds as the tiniest pieces.

I suggested we do her daughters as 11x14's. The girls as 8x10's, and the birds as 5x7. She seemed to like the idea, so we went forward with the order.

The little hand-cut birds were oh-so sweet, and were 5x7 inches each in size.

Wedding Silhouettes. A Custom Order.

Kerry K. of Talahassee, FL wanted to have some custom wedding Silhouettes made for her daughter and son-in-law's first wedding anniversary. Kerry sent over three photos for me to look at and see what I could do.
She wanted both pieces to be 8x10's.
I really liked this photo a lot, I just wanted to make some small adjustments to make it translate better in silhouetted form. I simply made her lips closed, and raised the flowers a little. Kerry was very proud, and told me she took this photo of her daughter herself!

I also liked this photo as well, and Kerry especially wanted to have this one made into a hand-cut silhouette. Again, a few small changes were needed. Since the Bride's nose was covered by the Groom's nose, I simply moved her back a little, and made their noses touch.
I had fun playing with the positive and negative shapes, and adding in details like the pearl neclace.
