...I can't take a straight picture. All this time I just thought maybe my paper was so crinkled from all the distressing and misting that I do...but this project is on a hard back canvas (sure it has an actual name, but hey...I'm new to this artsy stuff) and I still had to crop inside the actual canvas a bit. This is my first attempt at doing an image transfer onto canvas. I wasn't going to show this because I now know what not to do...but I think there are a lot of people like me who can learn from my mistakes so I'm showing it anyway!!!
This is my beautiful niece Brittany! I titled it "her heart will change the world", because she has such a HUGE heart and is just overall a sweet girl with so much potential to do anything she puts her mind to!
So what I would do different...
First, I would keep the background under the picture lighter so the pic stands out more...plus, the pic needed to be much bigger I think for this canvas...since it distorts the pic a little.
Then, I would be more prepared in the design...I totally did this on a whim like I do most things, but it would look much better with more of a purpose in the background. Like, more neutral background with splashes of color.
Anyhow, I have another one I'm wanting to make soooon so hopefully I figure it all out!
Thanks for looking!
