One thing I'm learning about making canvases that serve as photo frames, it is really tough to do one for both a boy and a girl together. I had a request to make one for a gift that would have a photo of a little girl about 1 year old and a boy about 4 or 5 years old. Pink and blue was the suggested color combo and she wanted the design to completely wrap the canvas.
I used the children's initials. The little girl's part was easy, some flowers and rhinestones, jewels buttons, and lace. Piece of cake.
Adding the flair was a last minute decision. That and the little boy and girl in the key are my favorite embellishments here. There is also sheet music from "It's a small world."
My understanding is that the grandmother who will use the canvas was delighted. Personally I think next time I would do a multicolor one with a lot of white space in the background.
Over the weekend, I made a video of my work area and my canvases currently in my Etsy shop. There is a multcolor one with lots of white space.
My shop is Lovely Layers Art.
Thanks for stopping by today! I have a scrapbooking process video for you tomorrow or Wednesday.
Beautiful canvases, Lisa! So happy you opened your Etsy shop - and that people are already snapping up your wonderful creations. Good luck with it! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Your canvases are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
And I think your next online class needs to be on making these beauties!
I especially love the 4 seasons one.
I really like the idea of the frame on the front of the canvases so people can add their own photos
