Studio Wall Art: HP Summer Photo Fun Giveaway ENTER TO WIN!

Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_20I was recently given a Walmart gift card by HP to try out some of their same-day creative photo offerings to share with you, as well as the opportunity for three of my blog readers to each win a $50 Walmart gift card to do the same! I went to my local Walmart Photo Center and checked out the products first hand, realizing how wonderful most of them would be for creating creative wall art with a mix of digital images and studio craft supplies. There’s so many products to choose from including:

  • Multi-Panel Canvas or Multi-Panel Mounted Photos (New from HP, only available in stores right now): The Multi-Panel Photo Canvas and Mounted Photos, where one photo is split across 2 and 4 panels and hung closely together, is a great way to showcase pictures of summer landscapes, unique architecture, summer wedding photos and large group family photos. Multi-Image Canvas or Multi-Image Mounted Photos (New from HP, only available in stores right now): Another new photo wall décor option, the Multi-Image Photo Canvas or Mounted Photo, features a “hero” image as the background and has small insets where you can display other photos on top of the hero image.

  • HP Mounted Photos: A unique offering from HP, Mounted Photos feature a silver-look edge. It comes ready to hang and also has a back stand so you can place it on a table or shelf. Mounted Photos come in a variety of sizes.

  • HP Premium Canvas: Made with high-quality canvas material with a gallery-wrapped look, the HP Premium Canvas is an affordable wall décor solution that’s so beautiful it can be displayed in an art gallery!

  • Other wall décor options include HP Faux Canvas, Posters and collage posters, and Prints

For my projects I chose the 16″ x 20″ Faux Canvas, because it was the choice with the most dimension- a gallery wrap of the image around a 1.5″ deep cardboard structure. So at my computer, I designed two different image. One to support my upcoming workshop classes, and another (that when finished reads: Craft Like Nobody’s Watching) to remind myself and others to just stop worrying about what others are thinking and enjoy the process of crafting. I designed them to the dimensions of 19″ x 23″ to allow for the 1.5″ side wraps. Here is what each looks like once loaded onto the Walmart Photo site where it indicates how your image will place with the dark areas representing the side wraps.Cathe Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_02For my first piece, I used one vintage group photo divided into three rounds, a tartan print, an image from a vintage chocolate covered cherries label, and a cigar box tax stamp. I also included some line art of a decorative border I designed to run vertically behind the round group shots. My other piece has a scan of one of my favorite vintage paint-by-number paintings, a digital cigar box tax label and a scanned vintage image of an audience watching a sport. I pieced all together with type in Photoshop. I uploaded the images to the Walmart Photo website and was in store picking them up that afternoon! Cathe Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_01Here is the lovely Favi from the Walmart Photo Center with my finished faux canvas wall art!Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_18Here is what the back looks like.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_03Once back in the studio the real fun began. I used acrylic gesso to beef up and add texture to the lettering by painting it on in glops and mounds. Once dry it has a nice, lumpy, chalky look.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_19 I hot glued some long paintbrushes on and tied up with a ribbon.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_12I adhered some thick baker’s twine along the graphic border.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_13I glued a pair of small, vintage scissors in the “dead space” between the first two words.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_14Then to frame the people shots, I used three 3-inch wooden embroidery hoops that I embellished with washi tape and rubber stamps that read Friends, Vintage, and Handmade.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_06Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_16I finished this piece by distressing the edges and corners with coarse steel wool for a bit of a worn look.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_15Here is my first finished faux canvas embellished wall art:Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_04For my second piece, I pulled out some metal letters I’ve had tucked away for years and roughly went over some with a white paint marker. Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_07I adhered them onto a piece of grosgrain ribbon tucked below a vintage cloth measuring tape, with a bit of vintage wallpaper peeking out from below.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_08Instead of using the metal letters for the word LIKE as I’d originally planned, I came across that word in my stack of vintage flash card and clipped it to the measuring tape to complete the message.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_09I used a glue pen and white glitter to enhance the word Craft.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_10I added a little craft-store picket fence to the bottom to keep the crowd back.Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_17I tucked in a few vintage millinary branches and my piece was complete!Cathe-Holden_HP_Photo_Canvas_05So as you see, your options for altered art, digital collage, traditional collage, and mixed media just got a whole lot more exciting!
