I don't post many DIY craft projects around here, largely because I don't actually do too many of them. My mom has always been very crafty, though, and recently created a sweet watercolor portrait of Millie.
The process she used to make it began with a photo of Millie (her all-time favorite):
Then she used the Sketch Me! iphone app to turn the photo into a drawing:
After printing it out on watercolor paper and painting over it in a bold color scheme, it was ready to frame:
The simple process would be fun to try on other types of pictures, like a house or an interesting landscape. This one, though, will have a special place in a future wall grouping in my apartment.
