simply silhouettes giveaway

Giveaway #4

Our first giveaway today features a unique twist on a classic art form--the silhouette. Simply Silhouettes is a husband and wife team, Patrick and Angela Flynn, creating art from digital silhouettes. They start with your own photograph and design a detailed silhouette that can be used on various products including clothing, stationery sets, paperweights, tote bags, canvases and even wrapping paper. Your family and pet silhouette portraits are created with classic styling, handcrafted warmth and not least, a touch of elegant whimsy.


You will not believe all the items that Simply Silhouettes can put your precious pictures on. Check out their site and leave us a comment telling us your favorite item and you could win a free 8x10 silhouette plus an extra copy! These would make excellent Mother's Day gifts for grandmas (or yourself).






Simply Silhouettes gives the classic craft a modern twist. This is the kind of thing that becomes a family heirloom! Comments must be received by Sunday, April 26 at 11:59pm PST. Good luck!

I have been trying to figure out how to make my own silhouettes, but since i am not artistic in the least, it has been pretty darn difficult. If I win this, it would make life so much simpler! I have to say, they are pretty darn creative, but I like the classic silhouettes on the canvas the best.
