One-of-a-kind décor is a the ideal way to personalise your pad, so today we’re going to look at a few different ways you can create canvas art that’s perfect to display in your living space, give as gifts, or even to sell commercially if you uncover a hidden talent!
Here are our tips to get you started…
Tried your hand at lino-printing? This hands-on craft traditionally produces black and white prints, but the more adventurous can utilise a variety of different coloured inks on the printing block. Lino prints are prone to smudging, so making a canvas print of your lino artwork means you can display your artistic skills minus the mess!
Involve all the family in the creative process by turning your kids’ artwork into canvas prints – what a lovely way to preserve memories by displaying them on your walls, or giving as gifts to grandparents or other family members as keepsakes.
Budding artist in the family who loves to draw? It doesn’t matter what medium you use, it’s so simple to create canvas art as a print of your drawings. Here are some of our favourites:
- Traditionalists can create canvas art masterpieces using pencils, charcoals and pens – we love this stunning pencil-drawing of a tiger by Peter Williams printed onto canvas.
- The tech-savvy need not fear – digital drawings designed on a tablet or computer look delightful printed to canvas. If you need some inspiration, Line Ya Business on Etsy sells beautiful custom-drawn digital portraits on canvas.
A trip down memory lane
Been researching your family history and found any interesting old photographs or documents when you were digging through those boxes in the attic? Turn them into canvas prints! A vintage photograph printed onto canvas makes a beautiful keepsake or gift; an old recipe, treasured item or love letter displayed on canvas on the wall is sure to conjure up wonderful memories and feelings of nostalgia.
We hope we’ve given you some ideas for how to create canvas art that will delight you and your family for years to come – and if you have an idea for a piece but you need some help to make it a reality, be sure to drop us a line and we’ll be more than happy to guide you through the process.
