Crafting with canvas

Took some time to craft today while little ones napped. Loved the wall art I created with items I had around the house...several layers of papers on a canvas plus red metal grommets, and two neat wooden 3D vehicles. A fun way to "recycle and reuse" to create canvases to sell!

((set of two 9x12 canvases with vehicle art -- available for purchase 
Cost $20 for the set + shipping))

Thinking of also adding some cute labels made of chalkboard material so that the customer can add the name of the little boy who's room these will be hanging in one day....
Love the idea of chalkboard paint but don't like the cost or time to wait on drying of paint so I grabbed a couple of these labels on sale at the craft store this week. If ordering individuals don't want them, then I'll probably use on some of my grandma's old Ball jars (per Pinterest idea I saw here).

Side note: Anyone who has tips on taking good photos of wall art, please comment below or email me! Our house is a ranch so it's long and narrow plus our trees outside make for a very low-lit rooms. This is on a table by a North-facing window but the reds/yellows in the wood seem to stand out too much. ...or if you know of better free photo editing software, please share! I'm almost tempted to buy a photography floor dropmat so photos show better (than on my carpet). Life is such a series of continuous learning, isn't it??
As always, thanks for reading!
