Here’s a special idea for holiday gifts; a hand-cut silhouette of your child.
We did this a couple of years ago when famed silhouette artist, Karl Johnson, came to San Diego.
No need to get the kids dressed up in anything special since the silhouette is just of their profile. As you can see, we ran to our appointment directly from a soccer game!
In just about 10 minutes, Karl snipped a perfect profile of my baby girl.
Karl’s work has been featured on The O List in Oprah Magazine and has appeared in more than 30 other magazines. Each silhouette is cut out entirely freehand. Karl simply looks at the subject’s profile (whether in person or from a photograph) and starts cutting their exact likeness out of black paper.
Every silhouette is an original, one of a kind work of art, signed by the artist that costs $30. Frames are available at an additional cost. One lucky Mom’s Guide reader will WIN a framed silhouette of her child to keep or give away as a gift!
To enter for your chance to win, simply comment below with whether you would like to visit Karl in person at one of this weekend’s events in La Jolla/UTC, Encinitas or if you would like to send him a photo and have the artwork mailed back to you.
