I Love Float Wraps!!

If we’ve worked together in the past, then you know that I’m a huuuuuge fan of float wraps. I just LOVE them! Canvas Gallery Wraps are gorgeous. They make your portraits pop off of the walls and they have a very upscale and high end quality to them (their price will also scream high end.) That is why I was elated when I discovered Float Wraps from my printer…and even MORE excited when they added a canvas option to them. Float Wraps are similar to Gallery Wraps in a few different ways. (1.) The canvas actually wraps around the frame. (2.) They come ready to hang. (3.) They add dimension to your walls. (4.) They make your portraits POP! There are two main differences: (1.) Float Wraps are not stretched on wood frames. (2.) They appear to be floating on your walls! Ok…there are three main differences. (3.) And they are less expensive!

I’m in the process of completing my office space/work space/studio space. It’s completely disorganized right now and I find it extremely difficult to find things. Luckily my creative ADD allows me to function in mild chaos. So instead of getting organized and the space put together first, I’m jumping right to the fun part….deciding what to put on the walls!! I chose a few favorite portraits from my client sessions last year and sketched out a collage on paper. I then kept my eyes peeled for fantastic frames. The fun part about traveling this time of year is that I’m in and out of different cities and can find unique touches that I wouldn’t necessarily find in Columbus. Each piece also has a story – even if the story is as boring as…”I was walking through the Milwaukee airport and saw this!

I took these product shots a while back, but just haven’t had the time to get them up. So for those of you that are Float Wrap virgins….prepare to experience wall decor euphoria!

On one trip in particular, I was in Toledo, OH and had a bit of down time in between meetings. I hopped into the first Jo-Ann Fabrics I saw. There I chose this fabric that I used in these product shots….isn’t it great?!?!

I love this image below because you can really see the texture that a canvas print brings to a photograph.

And one of these days, I will have these photographs on my studio wall.
