Tips on creating a colourful collage canvas

Every so often, a customer will share a Photobox creation with us on our Facebook page that really catches our eye – most recently, it was a creation from long-standing customer, Nicola. Just look at those colours! We were intrigued, and asked Nicola to tell us a little bit more about her fantastic Collage Canvas….

”My children love messy art. Our village decided to create some artwork by families within the community, so we had a wonderful opportunity to get involved, be messy with paint and, most importantly, have loads of fun as a family!”

“The photos I took showed my children being creative with the paint dripping off spoons, details of the paint fun and the after effects of the mess (my daughter’s totally purple face, above) using hand prints and footprints to create the art.”

“I decided to use these images for my Collage Canvas as I loved the bold, bright colours and wanted to display more than one image to create a special memory of a specific event. Three photos show my children getting involved with the community project and I chose the other three photos because I loved the detail of paint running down little hands, dripping off a spoon, and the colours were so vibrant I felt they really needed to be included in my Canvas.”

We love this idea from Nicola, and with Father’s Day coming up it makes a great gift. Get into the garden with the kids and try this fun, messy photo shoot for yourself!
