DIY wall canvas

Creating a beautiful canvas wall collage of my family photos has been on my list for a very long time.

I wanted to have just the right photos for the occasion. My goal was to have photo’s from the summer – with bright, sunny and warm photos.

I just love crystal blue, summer peach, bright emerald green and yellow. So our outfits and even the locations reflected the colors I wanted in my house on the walls.

Once the photos were customized and I had just the right photo’s I was looking for a new vendor. I had tried another canvas order earlier this summer and was dissappointed wtih the quality.

I found www.cgproprints.com – and saw their very attractive prices for professional photographers – and decided to give them a try.

I was not dissappointed, I was very pleased with the canvases I got. The quality and color is amazing. My photo does not do them justice at all.

The colors are rich, the construction is top notch, the backs are fully finished and ready to hang, the canvases are solid.

My collage is comprised of 2 24×24 canvases, 1 24×30 canvas, and 3 24×16 canvases.

When deciding what canvase sizes and photos to pick for my wall, I took measurements of my entire wall including the dimensions of the giant tv. I took those measurments and created an Illustrator document – and from there, I laid out the photos until I was happy with each individual image size orientation and it’s future placement on the wall.

You’ll need a bit of Illustrator or Photoshop experience to accomplish this – but not too difficult if you have mastered the concept of clipping masks.

One canvas – is a Word art design I put together with a saying that I liked – this I customized in Illustrator – I pulled some of the colors out of our outfits – so the colors would coordinate.

I’m really enjoying the way this came out – It’s so cheerful – and I couldn’t be more pleased.
