How to Create a Canvas Collage

Canvas Collage Guide

Canvas collages are a really neat gift that you can create for a loved one. With putting together many photos, you can create this look. 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. This type of look is more crisp than the other type of collage look. They are both great looks, and it just really depends on what you or the recipient of the gift is looking for. So after you create the design from photo-collage.net, you can save the design on your computer. From there, you can upload it onto our customizer tool and it is ready to go!

Baby Photos

Baby photos always are a way to melt mom’s heart. If there is a baby in the household, you can take creative photos of the baby in the comfort of the home. Instead of going to a professional photography studio and spending a lot of money, you have everything you need already. Drawing inspiration from a creative mother, such as Queenie Liao, you can create fantasy scenes with objects found around the house. 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! This is a great way to create something unique for mom.

How to Create a Photo Canvas Collage

Our online customizer tool allows you to upload multiple pictures. From there, you can resize and rotate the pictures to your liking. You can also use the tool to bring certain photos to the foreground or background. This is good for layering multiple photos when designing the collage. You can also create a more organized collage look by placing photos with spaces between them. For the background, you can choose a color gradation or a textured background to fill in the white spaces.

Adding Text

With the text tool, you can creatively add text to the photo canvas design. There are a lot of fonts to choose from and you can make the font any color you wish.

How to Make Your Own Triptych Canvas

make your own triptych canvas

We are excited to share with you our new product, the triptych canvas. The triptych canvas set is stretched over 3 8×10 canvases totaling 24” x 10”. The three canvases are stretched on a 1.5 inch frame and come ready to hang on the wall. We already made the measurements for you so that it is easy for you to make your own triptych canvas. Without having to put in the guesswork of where the photos have to line up, it is a simple four step process.

Panoramic Triptych

Panoramic photos work great as a triptych canvas, since these photos tend to be longer in length than the standard photo. Landscapes are the most popular panoramic type photo and are compatible with the triptych canvas look. Breaking a landscape photo into three panels is a great way to add an extra design element to the image. This wouldn’t work as well as a photo with a single subject matter, such as a portrait, but if done right, it can still be done. Another type of image that would work well as a triptych canvas is abstract art. This look is often found in modern homes with large artwork on the walls. The canvases we have set up as triptych are smaller in size, but still can be compatible as small abstract art hanging in an office.

Make Your Own Triptych Canvas with Ease

Like we said earlier, the guesswork is done for you, so that you can make your own triptych canvas with ease. The images will be fully wrapped around the frame, and the measurements have already been made. When side-by-side, the canvases will line up evenly and the images will align perfectly. Therefore, the edges of the canvas will not be left blank, but will also have the images seamlessly carrying over to the next canvas. The gallery wrap look of the triptych canvas can be easily designed by you.

Personalize Your Baby Photos on Canvas

When a new born baby arrives in the home, you can expect a lot of things to change. I hear that you get less sleep and life starts revolving around your new little roommate. It may be a roller coaster that takes you for a quick ride, so remember to cherish each moment. My father knew this and when my sister and I were born, his video camera and photo camera became extensions of his arms. In my parent’s house, you can find a collection of VHS tapes that are filled with baby footage along with a thick album collection of baby photos. Film photos and videos were the classic ways to document the memories of babyhood in the 80s. Now you can create modern custom canvas prints as a new creative way to express your baby photos!

Inspiration for Baby Photos

I stumbled across some baby photos that really stand out. Sioin Queenie Liao is a freelance artist that is inspired by taking photographs of her baby boys. She creates home made props to put together scenes and uses her baby photos to illustrate a dreamy fairy tale. She uses regular household items such as toys and plain clothes to create these scenes. Her expression of love is really inspiring and I really recommend checking out her website at the following link: http://wengenninwonderland.com/

So this is to all the mothers out there

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed but the mother never. A mother is something absolutely lovely.” -Kim Storozhuk

Custom Bible Verse Canvas

A Custom bible verse canvas makes great gifts for friends and family, and you can easily design a personalize canvas with our online customizer. With our customizer, you can easily upload images and add bible verses with our multi-line text tool. Here are some some examples of modern and traditional designs to help get you started on some creative ideas! And if you would like one of these designs, feel free to contact our customer support team!

Modern Custom Bible Verse Canvas Ideas

For a more modern look, you can select an image that is bold in color and simple in design. For the verse, it is also helpful to select fonts that are bold and simple. A short bible verse works best for the modern look, because it makes it easier to create an eye popping design. It is also possible to create modern look with longer bible verses too. For long bible verses, I would suggest a background that is muted in colors and very simple. That way, the font will not be lost in background. You can find these types of background images in our customizer. Here are some design samples to get you started on your custom bible verse canvas!

Traditional Custom Bible Verse Canvas

Perhaps you are more into the traditional look when it comes to custom wall art. Here are some design tips for designing a custom bible verse canvas with that classic feel.

Custom Bible Verse Canvas   custom bible verse canvas

Floral backgrounds tend to be soft on the eyes and make for great backgrounds that have a universal appeal. Biblical pictures depicting scenery also work well. As for font, brush scripts and ones that have a slant also add to the traditional style of the bible scripture feel. For longer verses, it is best to pick a background were the main image is to one side and  empty space on the other side. This is where the verse can be placed. There are endless possibilities for designing your custom bible scripture canvas and hopefully these ideas will help get you started.
