Deciding to design a custom piece of artwork is the easy part. The hard part is choosing the content! When there are so many photos and paintings you love, it can be difficult to pick the perfect composition of memories. Maybe you want to combine a meaningful photograph with a print from your favorite artist, or maybe you want to stick to photos from a single event. There are tons of possibilities when it comes to creating your own piece of wall art. We’ve created a handy guide to help you decide!

Switching Seasons

First, consider a seasonal-inspired photo print. Select images of you and your family around the holidays for a winter-inspired piece, or choose photos from a sun-soaked event to display during the summer months. If you’d rather create a canvas you can display all year long, look for timeless memories that showcase occasions that are not seasonally specific.

Combining Colors

Even if you’re using family photos for your custom canvas, you can still make sure the colors of each image complement each other! Pay close attention to the lighting in each photo. For instance, if your favorite pictures are dark and moody, add images with shadowy depth to the rest of the spread. If you’re going for more of a lighthearted look, seek out photos with pastel colors and high-exposure lighting. For customers who want to add artistic prints and creative imagery to their collage, we recommend sticking to a warm or cool-toned color palette.

The Correct Composition

While it’s important to look cohesive, it’s also crucial to add dimension and visual interest. That means you should include a variety of shots from a plethora of angles. Combine a close-up with a wide shot from far away. Add images with multiple subjects next to a single portrait. Make sure your subjects are positioned differently in each shot. This is your opportunity to showcase a variety of moments and emotions, which means you don’t want to hang images that look too similar to one another.
