I have been making monogram prints on burlap for weddings and anniversaries and just because for a few years now. I love the idea and they make great gifts.
My mom occasionally comes up with some really great ideas for me to try. They don't always work out but it's usually something that I hadn't though about doing before. So she wanted one of the monogram prints for someone she worked with. He was getting married and it would be the perfect gift. Then she asked if I could put a picture on it as well.
Hmmmm.......I don't know....well.....maybe......ok...yeah. I sure can!
Instead of printing on burlap I decided to use white canvas. I also used my heat press and image transfer paper instead of printing directly onto the fabric. I wanted a nice clean image.
I played with the placement of the photo for a while and it wasn't working they way I had envisioned in my head. Then I thought....background.....full size of the print....faded!
Bam! That was it.
This isn't the first one I made because I didn't ask if I could blast their photo all over the internet. I used a photo of my husband and myself from our wedding and I also made another one with my niece and her husband who have recently been married.
I have this style print on canvas available in my Etsy Shop.
I absolutely love the way it turned out.
