Hello 🙂 I had another idea to create a mixed media piece of artwork using my silhouette technique. So I started by using my Pre-Cut Vinyl of a Female Face and created a pretty pink and purple painting using the Dutch Pour Technique to make her hair flowing behind her.
Here is a list of supplies I used to create my Female Silhouette Painting;
- Pre-Cut Female Face Vinyl: http://craftyjenn.mybigcommerce.com/female-face-silhouette-vinyl-decal/

After I created this pretty painting I had this crazy idea to add some mixed media to her! I wanted to embellish her hair even more and add a pop of color like yellow so I decided to create some flowers in her hair and I’ve always loved the look of embroidery.
I combined the two to create a beautiful finished piece. Since this was painted on a canvas which is essentially fabric coated with paint I knew that I could get the needle to pierce through. So I started with a small flower to see how the paint would react to this technique. It worked better than I had thought!
Think about where you would like your embroidered flowers to go, what colors, how big you want them which might determine the technique you use to create them. There are several different flower techniques on YouTube for embroidery. You might also want to add some leaves. I added some white leaves among my pink and yellow flowers. You can see them in detail in the photo below.
I wanted the flowers to flow along with her hair so I placed them in a swirl manner that went from her forehead to the lower corner of the painting. I love this embellishment and I think it totally adds to the whole piece!
You can watch me add the embroidery on this pretty painting in my CraftyJenn YouTube video as towards the end I show you how I added it to the final painting. Here’s a link to the point in the video where I add the embroidery: https://youtu.be/OZb94dUONKw?t=1453
I hope you all have fun creating your own Silhouette Paintings and adding some embellished Embroidery to them!!
