*REVIEW & GIVEAWAY* Wall art with CanvasDesigns

There's a lot of places to get canvas pictures these days, but how do you know which one to use? Do you go one price, recommendation, most 'in the news'?

Having the opportunity to review a canvas of choice from www.canvasdesign.co.uk helps!

I had one picture in mind. One picture that has one too many people on it for my liking! Long story short, he 'gegged in' on the photo and ruined something totally amazing for Carson and CarsonsDaddy. It is a picture of the 2 of them with Luis Suarez.

As humongous Liverpool fans, this is mega. Like, amazingly cool.

Every time I'd attempted to have a canvas done in the past, I'd cropped the picture first, but of course you lost resolution and image quality so it's not recommended to go ahead and place your order.

I had a mooch on CanvasDesign's website and quickly, simply, realised I could simply move my image around the capture area so no cropping was necessary. I got excited - ha! Not kidding though... I actually did squeal! I emailed the lovely Loren, who'd initially been in touch re the review opportunity, as I wanted to doubly confirm that this was the case and she gave me the nod.

Couple of days later, whadaya know... my canvas print arrived - without a warped pixel in sight. I cannot believe the quality of the image and the thick canvas it's printed upon. Handily, they send a hanging kit too (no balancing on a nail for me!)



You would never believe that there had been one extra person to the left (Suarez's right).

This canvas will be treasured for years and years to come, by both father and son. And the cost for something similar? My print is 12x16 and worth £16.49. You really can't get more reasonable than this.

Carson's reaction was something else! He screamed with joy and this canvas now takes pride of place on his very own bedroom wall. He told his daddy "I'm with my heroes on my wall" - wow, just.. wow.


CanvasDesign offer canvas prints from as low as £7.99.

I was dressed in a 50's dress with bunny outfit, ears collar, and cuffs. Very cheeky, James said "I'd do anything for a woman dressed like that!" and the lads signed my outfit. I now wear this to every MSP gig we go to.
