Siblings are portrayed playing together, in proportion to each other’s size and age, holding their favorite lovey or doll or toy.

The larger size silhouettes are usually 8×10″ size but sometimes look better mounted onto the 11×14″ size acid free bristol board. Both are standard sizes for easy framing. For large silhouettes, you’ll receive one of each subject. Extras for the large silhouettes are $20.
Once a silhouette is completed and approved, you are able to order any of the other items offered on Heart Paper Scissors.
When you order a Standard Silhouette, you receive two: a left and a right facing silhouette, hand cut by the artist.
SHIPPING: Silhouettes ship separately from other items for $6.95 via Priority Mail (added at checkout).
This neutral palette frame of honey gold tone is a bit more embellished than a standard black oval frame but I wanted it to have that feel of the Victorian age where the art of silhouettes really flourished.
