Once you’ve completed the steps above, insert your finished vignette into your open frame. (Meaning: leave the glass out!) Part of the charm of this project is the dimension of the various layers, and you don’t want to obscure that with a boring ol’ piece of glass.
- If you are doing a grouping of silhouettes as I have done here, I recommend creating and saving each individual silhouette as a jpeg, then copying each of those images into a new blank document to create your grouping to print out. That way, if you want to go back later down the road and work with each silhouette individually, you’ll be able to do so without any hassle.
- It is my own personal preference to add extra dimension by stacking the foam dots in two’s, but you can most certainly use just one dot in each space if you would like.
- To add stability to your finished project, I recommend adhering your finished vignette to the frame’s glass before framing. If you want to use the frame for another purpose later down the road, you won’t kick yourself for having thrown it out. 😉
