DIY Watercolor

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.


  1. That is such a sweet water color of your dog. It's amazing that an app like this exists. They've really come up with so many creative ideas for the smart phone, haven't they?

  2. I love this! I'd like to do something similar with my cats.

  3. next up! a guest crafty post by Mrs. P! please let her know that is my request :)
