I have been a lucky girl this week - not only have I received chocolate but also a beautiful canvas picture of the girls. I was thrilled a couple of weeks ago to be offered a canvas of one of my pictures to review. I had seen photo on canvas on friends walls but they had all been from professional photo shoots and I had never had the confidence that one of my snaps might look good like this.
Now I had the opportunity to try. The most difficult part was choosing the photo - you may have realised by now that I do take rather a lot of photos! The question was did I choose a macro flower type shot, a view or a picture of the girls? I plumped for one of the girls as I reckoned if we didn't like it there would be a grandparent who did! I didn't want a picture of them posing for a photo, I wanted a more natural picture so I thought of one that I had featured in a blog post a few months ago which had been taken in Cornwall. We had had a lovely time there, it is a picture of happy memories - and for once they are not arguing - even holding hands!

Choosing - that was the difficult bit - now for the easy bit. The process is really simple. Just go on to the HelloCanvas website, upload your chosen photo, select the size you want, indicate where you want it cropped if necessary or you can leave it to Hello Canvas. You then have a few more options to choose from like size of the print that you want, whether you want it in black and white or whether you want a frame rather than just the 'floating frame'. You are given the chance to review it before you order it and then you press the order button and that's it - simples!
Our canvas was delivered within two days and it was safely and securely packed in bubble wrap and a perfect fit cardboard box. It is ready to hang as it is and one concern of mine that it might fade in the sun was put to rest when I checked the website as they are printed in UV resistant ink which does not fade. Here are the results - you can see they have cropped out the hosepipe and made the girls more central.
