DIY painting portrait

Step 1- Go on an epic trip.  In my case, it was with my brother and sister to Scotland and it was so wonderful that I didn't want to come home.

Step 2- Take a lot of pictures and hope that you somehow capture the beauty that surrounds you.  Print out your favourite, in this example I chose 16x20 and then mod-podged it on to a 16x20 canvas.

Step 3: Choose a quote that speaks to you and that a font that makes it look pretty.  I wrote out my quote in pencil then went over it in black acrylic paint.  

Step 4:  Add some detail here and there, can you spot the parts I painted on?

Step 5: Frame and put somewhere equally as important.
