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.

I am beyond grateful I get to photograph intimate destination weddings and elopements all over the world. Besides traveling for photography work, exploring new places with my husband has become a big part of our marriage and something we want to continue for the rest of our lives. My husband’s grandparents are our biggest idols. They have spent over 50 years married, traveling the world together, continuing to explore new places together. Their passion for traveling has led them to occasionally taking their entire family on vacation, most often to an exotic beach of their choice; a tradition we hope to be able continue one day in their honor.

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.

My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”
