Last week, I received my first gallery wrap canvas order from Willow Paper Works. To say that I’m thrilled with them is an understatement! This grouping of three are 20×20 in size and have a 2 inch deep border on the sides (they also come in 1 inch if you prefer). The quality is outstanding, and the canvas finish makes the photography just pop off the walls. Beautiful! I am so happy with them, and know they will be treasured in our home for years to come.
We have average 8 foot ceilings in our main living area. Usually when people hear “20×20″ they think that it is so huge! But when you see it up on the wall, you can see that bigger is indeed better. I think these three portraits wouldn’t have half the impact if they were 12×12.
I also designed an edge with a pattern, texture and each of my children’s names on it (on all four sides), instead of the traditional route of wrapping the photo around the edge. This adds another level of personalization to my heirloom art pieces!
Before I hung them, I took photos of each of my children with the portrait of themselves. This also gives you a little more perspective on the actual size of the canvases. Micah and Rachel are almost 4 years old in these photos, and Danielle is 2 1/2.
