A special piece of artwork . . .

You have probably seen a few blogs posts flying around at the moment with some really gorgeous canvasses of family photographs, treasured children and memories. Well I too was offered the opportunity to receive a special canvas of my choice from Photo-canvas.com but it takes me AGES to make up my mind.

Some people love nothing more than to have a large photograph of their children on their walls (which is fine) but I’m not like that, I like to update my photographs often because I take so many of them. Committing them to canvas would seem like such a waste to keep changing them so I was just about to politely decline the kind offer when a blog post caught my attention by my lovely friend Jax at Mummy’s Little Monkey. She gave me the inspiration I needed to rethink my answer and I’m so glad that I did.

Photo Canvas

The guys at Photo-Canvas were really helpful as I’m a bit of a perfectionist, I sent them this photograph together with a photograph of my kitchen and said that I would like it made into a piece of pop-art which would fit in with my kitchen colour scheme. The very next day I received the artwork proof which is created by hand. Hubby and I were a little unsure as to whether Curly’s face looked a bit too harsh and so I shared my concerns with Photo-canvas and they came back with this version, they had lightened up his glasses and his eyes and we were much happier so I approved the proof and took delivery of my artwork the following day. How’s that for good customer service and just look at the finished product, looks pretty swish doesn’t it!

    That’s amazing. I use Photobox and I had no idea they commission specialist artwork. I personally want a whole wall dedicated to canvasses as I can’t stop flicking through pics of Dexie.

      I really love it, it’s one of those pictures that I know I will want to always have on display 🙂
