create custom canvases with the modular birth announcements: woodland delight

Woodland Delight Album Canvas Display Photoshop Templates For Photographers 1Woodland Delight Album Canvas Display Photoshop Templates For Photographers 2Woodland Delight Album Canvas Display Photoshop Templates For Photographers 3Woodland Delight Album Canvas Display Photoshop Templates For Photographers 4 We are so inspired by the Modular Birth Announcements & Sales Kit: Woodland Delight, that we decided to create some coordinating canvases to share with you. We chose to print these as an 8x10 (flower example) and an 11x14 (mountain example), but with our fully layered Photoshop files you can easily increase the size to much larger: such as a 16x20 or 24x30.

To create your canvas: 1. Open your preferred vendor's Canvas template in Photoshop (we recommend ProDPI) 2. Increase the canvas size to add the desired width to each side of the canvas to accomodate for the wrapped portion of the canvas. For instance: if you are printing a canvas with a 1.5 inch wrap, you will want to add a 2 inch border to each side of the canvas. So for a 16x20 canvas, you'll want a Photoshop document size to be 20x24. Make sure to create guides where the wrapped portions of the canvas start on each side. 3. Grab one of the 6 patterns from the inside of one of the cards in your preferred color palette 4. Since the patterns are smaller, you can repeat it multiple times to keep the graphics small. However the patterns are vector-based, so if you want to increase the size of the graphics as well you can simply increase the size of the whole pattern. For these canvases we chose to repeat the pattern multiple times. 5. Create a color layer within the designated space in the guides to act as the background for the front of the canvas 6. Pull the cover of your choice from the palette of your choosing and drag into your current template 7. Resize to fit within the front of the canvas 8. Add your images! These birth announcements are particularly versatile because they have so many adorable elements that can easily be used on albums (see our Woodland Delight Album), canvases, cards, as embellishments, and so much more. Not to mention they can work with multiple types of sessions and aren't just limited to babies. As with any of our products, we always recommend venturing out of the box and experimenting with the hundreds of things you can do with all of our templates.

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
