After months of thinking about it, and endless weeks of sourcing, working out the technicalities and producing pieces for a few brave people who agreed (for a discounted price) to be guinea pigs – my bespoke canvas covered album are now available to order.
As with most of my products, they came about from an enquiry from a client for a scrapbook album cover that would have a Word Art on the front. I had seen canvas printed photographic albums but nothing for scrapbookers, and I had played around with the idea of a photograph with a few personalisations but hadn’t considered a full blown Word Art.
The Word Art, it turned out, was the easy bit – relatively speaking; the difficulty would be in getting a print that could withstand being glued to hard board, maintain its colour and shape and endure everyday wear and tear. Then there was the adhesive … hmmm, wasn’t that a fun (and expensive trial!)
But I ploughed through the tantrums and strops and finally got it to work.
Here is my first album, a vintage style cover in greens and blues was the remit, along with a photo and a Word Art – so very pleased with how it turned out ….

I love how the shadows make the Word Art panel look like it’s stuck on top of the album

and the testimonial received from my client – such a huge relief!
