Step 1: Finding the Perfect Template-Mountain for You

Picture of Finding the Perfect Template-Mountain for You

Now You have to choose a Template for Your Light. You can search Pictures of mountains in the internet or maybe You have a favourite mountain, that You want to use?

I used a picture of the "Watzmann" which is an especially interesting looking mountain in Bavaria, Germany. I was there a few years ago and it was pretty impressive!

If You have found the perfect image for You, print it out!

What a coincidence! :D I guess You can also use a state as template... And thanks for Your comment ;)

I like the idea that you can pick out any mountain range you want to use! Cute memory saver.
