Silhouette Sketching

Today is a blah, headachy kind of day for me. You know that kind of day, right? I'm totally unmotivated to do even the smallest things. So rather than a tutorial, I thought I would just share with you a few sketches I have done while playing around with my Silhouette Cameo.

While I consider myself creative, I am not particularly artistic. My drawing abilities are along the lines of a preschooler. To have the ability to "draw" whatever I want using the Silhouette makes me supremely happy.

I decided to jump right in and try layered sketches using multiple colors on this first picture. Thanks to Melissa from the Silhouette School blog (check her out people, she rocks!!) I was able to fill in the sketch somewhat instead of it just being a single outline. I chose designs I had in my library, sized them to fit my paper, and let the creative juices flow.

This second sketch is for my bedroom. I have several dress designs I plan to use and hang in a group on the wall.

These next two sketches are for my nieces. They'll love them!!


And this last one is for my dad. Shhh! Don't tell!!

  1. Good stuff. If that's how you create when you're unmotivated, we all have some work to do. I won't tell your dad a thing.

  2. so cute
    like you i am creative, but can't draw a round circle

    1. That natural artistic ability is really overrated anyway, right??!!

  3. I love these! I was just thinking of making something similar for my husband with my vows for our first anniversary!

  4. Great idea! I like the one for your Dad the best. But that is probably because I am partial to fudge :)

  5. These are so cute! And you are a fabulous crafter!! I think my daughter would like one of these crafting tools - may be a good Christmas gift! Susan

    1. Amazon has good bundle deals on them. Check them out when you're ready


I would love to hear from you!
