I have this cool idea for my mom for mother’s day. I want to decoupage a canvas full of pictures of my sibs and my mom. Only this is I want to do it the best way possible and have it look good. I can’t find any good ideas out there, or any good tutorials. Any help out there???

I even thought about possibly transferring some photos directly onto the canvas. As I just rethought this idea because I want to do ones for my 2 “Mommy” sisters as well. Being that one of my sisters is a single mother of 5 beautiful yet “BAD” haha kids and the other is 8 months pregnant.

I think the idea is good, I just wish there were pics for me to see.

Also all over I have read that you have to use a laser printer for copies, is that true?? There is no other way.

Also, again... haha. I want it to look more like this project except with photos, I want a majority of them black and white.

Sorry! Unfortunately it's a really old post, and I don't think I took pics of mine (and it's at my parents' house in another state) but it did work our really nicely and similar to what you show. I did it in pop art style with 4 pics photoshopped in different bright colors, printed onto printable iron on fabric and ironed onto the canvas, finished with a light coat of varnish. It's held up a couple of years now. You'd have to check the package to see about the printer though. I think I used a color printer at work (?), I'm not sure about that, though.

Good luck!
