This look is fun, since it has the look of a album page with a collection of photos displayed on one canvas. It can be a little tricky to figure out how to align all the images to make it look right. This is why we created a guide for you here at MakeCanvasPrints.com to help you through the process.
Using Our Customizer to Create A Canvas Collage
You can use our online customizer tool to create this look. The first step is to upload the photos you would like to use for your collage. The next step is re-sizing them and positioning them on the canvas to create the collage. If you are trying to place the images on the canvas and you are not particular on how they align, then this is the route to take. You can leave spaces between the images, and then fill the background with a color or a background design. You can also position the photos so that they slightly overlap each other to create this look.
Using an Offsite Tool to Create a Canvas Collage
If you would like to create canvas collages where all the photos are perfectly lined up against one another, then we suggest using an offsite design tool. Photo-collage.net has an awesome program to help you put together a perfectly aligned collage. They also have some tips and videos to help you through the process.

Queenie creates vibrant scenes with common house hold items such as linen and baby toys. You can also cut out shapes using felt, that can be found at a local crafting store. Most images also will be of good enough quality for printing if taken with a smart phone. But if you have your own camera, then that is even better!
