Canvas People is back with their popular FREE 8×10 personalized photo canvas (just pay $14.95 shipping). The ladies here at Frugal Living NW are huge fans of photo canvases. Never made a personalized photo canvas? Here’s just a few ideas to get you started.
:: Use a professional photo from your photographer. Angela and I (and families) have had private photo sessions done with photographers and have loved the results on canvas. I’ve mixed the canvas photos in with my regular photos to give texture to my wall full of framed photos.
:: Use FREE printable downloads or custom artwork. The internet is filled with FREE downloads. If you’re handy with Photoshop (or know a friend who is) have them adjust the size to a 8×10. I’ve also noticed that with some downloads are able to be customized for the size you need at the time of download.
- Becky Higgins – tons of FREE downloads on the right side of the page and they are adorable
- Feed Your Soul – lots of Indie art
- Adventures of a Betty Crocker Wannabee – Fall Printables (This printable makes me giddy just thinking about Pumpkin Spiced Lattes. I know, Summer just started).
- The Handmade Home – Nursery art
Here is what I had a designer friend make up for me. I’m pretty sure it took her 30 seconds. It would have taken me days. I love it!
:: Use a photo you took with your point & shoot. Choose something that is close up without a bunch of background. Like this one:
Or try shooting something totally ordinary up close, like this:
Either one of these pictures would work well — they are totally ordinary and didn’t require any photography skills at all. Just turn your flash off, use the natural light and cram the camera into your kid’s face.
Here’s how to order:
:: Go to Canvas People and click on “Order Canvas Now.”
:: Upload your photo.
:: Choose your canvas size (8×10 is the free one). If you’d like a larger canvas, you will get $50 off.
:: Choose your frame. If you want just a canvas look, choose “No frame” at the bottom right of the box.
:: Choose any effects. Choose “No effect” at the bottom right if the photo looks fine the way it is.
:: Add the creation to your cart and checkout! You will pay $14.95 for shipping if you select the 8×10 size.
Now it’s your turn. What would you create with your FREE 8×10 canvas?
