The Power of Writing Your New Years Resolutions on a Custom Canvas

In this video by Mary Morrissey, life coach, author of 2 best selling books and founder of Life Mastery Institute, she explains the power of writing down your goals & dreams backed up with scientific studies. With the new year upon us, we all understand how sometimes one can feel pressured to have a “New Years Resolution” that involves some big old transformation or life change. Along with that, comes the fear and doubt in the back of our minds, “What if I don’t succeed?”, “What will my friends think of me if I quit?”, “What if it’s too hard?”. We are here to help you! Writing down your goals on a custom printed canvas that YOU designed will tell yourself that you made a small investment to reach a bigger goal. Also, you can hang it somewhere you will see it everyday and be reminded- in style! You can print an old photo you like of yourself if you want to lose weight, use a code word, photo or symbol that only you know what it stands for, or simply type your goal(s) or inspirational quote out with a fun text and background, for example: “Positivity” if you are striving to be a more positive person. The possibilities are endless once you commit to believe in yourself and your ability and creativity!

Decorating for the Holidays with Custom Canvases

Everyone loves the holidays  because they are filled with family, joy, generosity, good company and good food. Whatever your traditions are, we all have those special memories and traditions that have made our holidays magical throughout the years. As the years go by and family dynamics change and grow, we look back on past holiday’s which remain some of our fondest lifelong memories. This is why custom canvases are great for personalizing your household’s holiday decorations! With October kicking off the start of the holiday season with Halloween, we can tell you how you can incorporate a custom canvas into your holiday decor! Who really wants to walk into their home to a six foot tall witch that will let out a cackle at every passerby? Blowing up photos from past Halloweens, photos of pumpkins you hand carved, or a creepy haunted house you went to as a tradition adds a personal touch to your decorations without turning your home into what looks like a holiday themed antique shop or garage sale. hand turkeyDuring Thanksgiving time, remember those finger paint “hand turkeys” and all the fun thanksgiving art your little sister made? Now you can preserve these precious pieces on custom canvases simply by taking a photo of the art or scanning it, then uploading the image onto a canvas!

Much like how Mom still hangs up the Christmas ornaments you made in grade school (even if they are falling apart), we think that the photos you took at the mall while sitting on Santa’s lap when you were five can add a really fun personal touch to your home,  instead of sitting in a photo album all year long.  A custom canvas is also a great way to decorate your home for the holidays without completely ruining the decor or theme of your household.

Custom canvases are an amazing way to bring family memories, old and new to life and remind everyone of  these good times throughout the season!

Historic Centuries-Old Style Called Triptych Reborn with Prints On Canvas

Triptych is a work of art that is similar to panel paintings, three to be exact, which is why it’s divided into three sections. The three even hand crafted panels that are hinged together and can be arranged in different ways freestanding. It is therefore a type of “polyptych”, the term for all multi-panel works. The middle panel is generally the largest and it is flanked by two smaller related works, however today there are many triptychs that use equal-sized panels like the ones on our website. The multi-panel form arises from early Christian art, and was a popular standard format for altar paintings from the Middle Ages onwards. Its geographical range was from the eastern Byzantine churches to the Celtic churches in the west. Today, however, triptychs are a popular interior design go-to element to make any space look special.

Modern Photographic Triptych Printed On Canvas At MakeCanvasPrints

A photographic triptych is a common style used in modern commercial artwork. The photographs are usually arranged with a plain border between them. The work may consist of separate images that are variants on a theme, or may be one continuous larger image split into three panels. Just about any landscape photos look great, or any photo with a wide format. Then again, you could always turn our template sideways in our customizer, and make the image span 3 panels vertically instead. The arrangement could also be staggered at a diagonal for a more playful design.
