Last year we had a craft group that met once a month and made crafts, visited, laughed, and shared munchies.
One of the crafts we did were these family canvases.

Here is Tawnya's finished project.  She has three ADORABLE boys that she took photo's of and mounted them on to thin black craft foam and glued onto the canvas.  I helped her with the vinyl lettering.
Didn't it turn out awesome

This is the finished canvas that Christine made of her four HANDSOME boys.
I love the words she chose describe her little men.

One other lady made one with photo's of her boys and a family photo but I didn't get a picture of it and she has since moved.
So Kadi, if you stop by my blog anytime soon I would love to feature your finished canvas too.
If you would be interested in making one of these here is what you need:

1-12x24 artist canvas
 { found at any craft store}
Paint of your choice for canvas
{3x3 or4x4 work well} 
Thin black craft foam
{like Tacky Glue or Gorilla Glue}
Vinyl lettering
{I will do custom orders, just email me at}
