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.
Poems are also a great way to express your love on custom canvas prints. You can write a poem of your own and add it to a canvas using the text tool.

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 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.

A photo canvas is a simple way to brighten up a room.
A New Photo Canvas
