Fall Art and a Fun Giveaway

One of my favorite ways to personalize art in our home is by using 
photographs I have taken!  Not only is it personal, but serves as a
 reminder of the day I took it and as a souvenir of the place!

Fall art- Itsy Bits And Pieces- Canvas Factory #sponsored
{This post is sponsored by Canvas Factory}


Each year, my husband and I visit beautiful fall color areas in the Minneapolis- St. Paul metro area.  The river roads are always spectacular, and another place we love is Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis.  It is like a hidden jewel.  Last year I took some photos that we thought would be nice keepsakes of our day, and  
Canvas Factory offered to create a lovely 16x 20 canvas print of one of my photos!
It turned out so beautifully...

The detail is wonderful...this photo is actually from 
my Instagram account and was taken with my cell phone.

I ordered my canvas with a mirror edge, it allows all of the photo 
to be used on the canvas front, without having to use any for the edges...

They seal the back so nicely and attach hangers...

It makes a special piece of fall art in our home! 
It's fun using our old ladder as a makeshift easel!

  1. Linda, that's really neat! The canvas makes the photo stand out so much more than it would if it were printed on one dimensional paper. Love it on your ladder. :)

  2. I love taking pictures too, and would use the canvas similar to the way you did. What a neat way to display your own photos. The mirror edge is a great feature.

  4. Did you ever see the youtube video of the guy who went over Minnehaha Falls in a kayak? Crazy! If I win, I'll definitely get one of my photos from my travels put on a canvas and then I'll add it to my travel gallery wall. Thanks for the chance to win Linda :-)

  7. I would love to have a canvas of a photo I just found of my parents sitting at their vacation home - they passed in January and February of 2015. ro2write@sbcglobal.net Thank you for the great post - beautiful photo!

  8. I'm also in Minnesota. I took a really cool picture yesterday of multiple butterflies on my sedum that would look beautiful on a canvas. Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. I love how you used the ladder to display your canvas! If I won, I'd either use a black and white photo my son took of my husband's 52 Chevy or a photo I took of my grandmother's painting of a leopard. I've been wanting to do both on canvas. The hard part would be deciding which to do first! :)

  10. If I win, I will probably use a picture of my wife and me or maybe a picture of clouds that my wife takes many pictures of. It just so happens that we are putting up our pictures after painting our walls. We need more pictures, and having one that we could win would allow us to make the kind of pictures that mostly follows what we need to fill some space. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  17. What a beautiful photograph you chose, Linda! I take so many photographs, I would need to ponder which one to choose :)

  18. Hi Linda! I always enjoy your blog. I can't imagine living where it gets so cold in winter but the landscape you have there looks beautiful. I'm a southern girl in Florida and I'm cold if it hits 70 or below. We have our own type of beauty here. I love our big, old Oaks with the Spanish Moss and how we can have flowers blooming pretty much all year long. I could do without the hurricanes though.The canvas of your waterfall is really pretty. I just had all of my children and grandchildren here and we took a family photo in the park one day so that would be really nice printed on a canvas. Thank you for sharing your vintage lovelies and your home. My heartfelt best, Kimberly

  19. I have never thought to use an old ladder like that! I have one that's been waiting for its purpose! Thank you!
    I have a couple canvas pictures of my son's senior portraits and I would love to add a special photo from when he was six. It's one of those old timey photos and he's in an oversized jacket, big hat with a "press pass" in the band, and he's leaned up against an antique typewriter. All that's missing is the cigarette. LOL
    Thanks for the opportunity. debbieomi at hotmail

  20. That picture you took is gorgeous and the canvas really showcases it. If I won, I would use a picture of the grandkids at the beach together - this year was the first time that happened! Thanks for the chance to win.

  24. I love your idea of displaying that on the ladder. We recently moved and I might have to get a ladder now and borrow your idea. :-) I would use a picture of my kids or one of my husband, kids, dog, and I.

  30. We saw hundreds of lady slippers by Warroad on our yearly trip to Lake of the Woods. My daughter, as a horticulture grad student, was ecstatic and took lots of pictures. I'd have the canvas made with one of those beautiful photos to put in our living room.
