DIY Carter Kustera Silhouettes

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend, I spent most of it packing up our house as our big move out day was Sunday.  We have now officially arrived at my in-laws for the next three months (eek).  My husbands parents have impeccable taste and their home is amazing, filled with stunning works of art – I will be blogging about it soon!

I knew our move was happening on Fathers Day and that we wouldn’t really be able to celebrate properly so I wanted to make sure I had something special for my husband ready that morning.  I decided to go the sentimental route this year and since I love a good DIY project I decided to tackle silhouettes of our two boys ala Carter Kustera.

Carter Kustera is known for his hand painted silhouettes is bright cheery colors accompanied typically by witty quotes and text.

Here is my silhouette attempt of my oldest son, its passable at best.  Clearly I need some work!  Sorry about the picture quality, as soon as the big reveal occurred the silhouettes were quickly shuttled into storage until we move back home.

I used Shel Silverstein quotes to accompany the silhouettes, the one above says “Tell me I’m clever, Tell me I’m kind, Tell me I’m talented, Tell me I’m cute, Tell me I’m sensitive, Graceful and wise, Tell me I’m perfect – but tell me the truth.”

And speaking of telling the truth it was later revealed to me that my husband actually was really hoping for a pair of new jeans…  looks like I might be doing some shopping.  Any suggestions?

Hope you all have a great week!
