Easy Canvas Prints

I've seen so many great canvas pictures lately, so I jumped for joy when the nice people at Easy Canvas Prints contacted me about doing a product review for a canvas picture of my very own. I had such a hard time deciding what to have printed on the canvas. And in the end, I decided I wanted to do something a little different than a photo. I finally decided on putting the image from last year's Christmas card on the canvas.
I have to say, I really loved my experience with Easy Canvas Prints. Their website is clean, simple and SO easy to use; it takes you step-by-step through designing the perfect canvas for your needs. And it shows the updated pricing as you go, so there are no surprises in the end. They had such a quick turnaround and were very responsive to my questions. The image I received is exactly the image I uploaded...and the colors matched so well. Sometimes you never know what you'll get with the difference between computer screens/printers, etc. But I'm thrilled with the results.
And getting my new canvas prompted an overhaul of my gallery wall. I've still got one little bare spot where I'm planning on putting a little needlepoint artwork when I get it finished. Oh, and I apologize for the sub-par, shadowy photos. My couch is in a spot that only gets good light for a few minutes. And I just happened to be stuck in the tire shop with a flat during those few minutes. And I swear the frames are actually straight in photography skills are severely lacking today.

Have a great weekend!

A Quick Note: While Easy Canvas Prints did provide me with a free canvas, they did not make me say nice things about them. This is my honest-to-goodness opinion on my experience with them. My experience was really so great that I'm planning my next purchase from them as we speak.

That silhouette is gorgeous. I'd be plastering that puppy on stickers, cards, stamps and all in creation, basically. Go you.

I found this via pinterest! I was wondering, how did you go about making the silhouettes of your family in photoshop for this project/your Christmas card? I'd love any tips you might have - thanks!

I found this via pinterest! I was wondering if you could perhaps explain how you created the silhouette image of your family for this canvas/last year's Christmas card? I'd love any tips! Thanks!

Hi Holly,
I just took a photo of my family holding hands, then traced around it in Illustrator, and filled in the shaped. I think you can do the same thing in Photoshop using the pen tool. It is a little time-consuming, but I think it's worth it.
