I am loving chevron and gray lately. So, I made personalized silhouette canvas art. I went with red and yellow as contrasting colors for the scheme. The happiness of yellow and neutralization of gray is a perfect for sunny days. And black and white decorative accents will add some glamor to the room. I’ll be sharing updates on the room later.
So today I am sharing with you:

How to make silhouette project?
I made a Chevron (Zigzag) printable on photoscape. You can use any online tool.

If you would like to use the chevron pattern for your projects, you can Print/Download it here.
There are 4 sizes for ease and suitability.
DIY Cardboard chevron stencil
Now (with the help of an X-Acto Knife) cut the chevron pattern out of a piece of cardboard. Use self-healing mat for safety purposes. You can also use freezer paper or transparency sheet for making a stencil.
Paint chevron canvas
Using the Chevron stencil as your guide, paint on the canvas. I used acrylic paints for painting.
For Gray color– The simple black and white combination.
For Dark Yellow– I added a hint of red to bright yellow.
I couldn’t make up my mind about using the canvases horizontally or vertically. So, I hung them on the wall to decide. And I realized:
If the wall is wide, the horizontal chevron looks better. On the other hand, if the wall is high, go with the vertical chevron. It makes sense that way and adds feature to the room.
Try to display silhouettes on canvas and see what works best.
