Look! I added photos to two already cute canvases and made them cuter — I LOVE cuter.
I also LOVE scrapbookpictures.com, where I can quickly upload and order prints in a variety of great sizes. I'm particularly fond of the 2" x 2" size, as when you order one, you automatically get two!
When I order 2" x 2" prints for a project (like this one) I end up with duplicate prints to drop into my Square-punch Picture Drawers (one of the extras in my book Photo Freedom.) These drawers tend to fill up with older prints that you've had in your system for a while or even those that at some point you've relegated to cold storage and reintroduced with your square-punch. It's nice from time to time to also add these little square prints from Scrapbook Pictures and know you've got some "fresher" faces in the mix.
My hope is that Lauren can use these canvases to decorate her dorm room at school.
I had Lauren select the photos, ordered them and then simply adhered them randomly to the design of the canvas. I painted a thin layer of Mod Podge over the photos and rub-on words …
I added some ribbon and a bow.
Notice that each canvas has only one white square. For a more pleasing design, I flipped one canvas over so these white squares would sit on a different visual plane. I mounted the only color photo on one white square and added words to the other. I then stepped back and had that feeling that I needed just a little bit more … that's when I added the daisy.

PS. Scrapbook Pictures is having a sale on MANY of their great print sizes. See if you can dream up a page or project that calls for something special.
