Spider shadow stencil

Look who is here!

This spider was really tiny! Just a few mm! Not more... You see how big the leaf is in the back... but due to the sun and the dark shadow I saw her! I just had to take a picture.

The silhouette of this tiny one was so cool! I just enlarged the picture... and made a black and white image with it. As a program I used gimp, it's freeware! For the editing process I used the smart sharpen tool of gimp. You see how good it is working because it was able to get all the little hairs visible! 

But I also wanted just a clear stencil / silhouette. So I used inkscape (also freeware) to vectorize and smooth the outlines. 

I hope you like her as much as I do :) Her and all of her tiny spider clones! ^^

  1. That is so cool! What a genius way to get the silhouette of Mr. Spider. Adding the web line elevates it to superb cuteness! another beautiful post, Claire - I always get inspired when I open your blog.
