First, I enhanced the color of the photo because I wanted it to have a really full-of-color feel to match the power of the words she requested. Then I selected a color scheme by pulling colors from the photo and began selecting fonts that expressed the words visually to me. Then I added some pretty little sun spots and a soft milky frame to give it a little mystical feel and added some little daisy embellishments in the top corners. I liked the results...

Then I did another version, a little more of a crisp clean look (knowing that not everyone likes the embellished artsy look.)

In the end, Emily chose this version of the photo for the final printing of the canvas... The stylized photo including the really cool quote with the milky frame, sunspots and sweet daisy embellishments. The gallery wrap sides of the canvas will be a dark sky blue that matches to the darker portion of the sky. She sounded thrilled and I gotta tell you that is the best part of what I do!
Emily promised me a picture of the final canvas when she receives it back from CanvasPeople. I will post it here...I'm hoping it turns out great!!!
What's your favorite version?
Love and blessings!
