Pet Profile Art
I started with a picture of Inga in profile:
Then, I opened it with Paint.net, and added a layer so I could trace around her face. I filled in the rest with white, so all I was left with was a black outline:
I cropped the outline to 8x10 proportions so I could enlarge it to fit our 16x20 frame. Then, I took the outline to Kinko's on my jump drive and printed it out on a 16x20 piece of white paper.
I got two big pieces of poster board, one white and one in a fun color to use as the background.
Then, I simply cut out Inga's face and traced it onto the white poster board. I cut this out again and secured it to the green poster board, cut down to size.
Voila! Doggy pop art :) I think it's cute and fun. What do you think- is it fun art or are we just crazy dog people?
