silhouette art


I love seeing distressed book art on Etsy and Pinterest, but I could never bring myself to destroy a book to make it myself.

Then I realized that I have printed pages from early drafts of my stories…look at all that text just waiting for a new purpose!

Copy paper doesn’t always handle being drowned in coffee all that well. This piece barely survived. Adds character, don’t you think?

To be certain, I practiced my sketch a couple times before attempting my tortured paper.


I’m fairly pleased with my results. It would do better with a bigger frame giving it room to breathe, but this was the only one I had lying around.

I feel like it was a good practice project. I’d like to make another with better fonts underneath.
