Project with a plot – “Sweet Dream” Canvas 

By Marina Ignatova


“Hello dear fans of the G45 brand!

I will not stop repeating that the Graphic45 collections are simply created so that we can create not just beautiful projects, but those that make sense. Thanks to various characters, we are able to create a whole story using our photos! So where do you start?



Before starting work on a project, I think about what it should be, what I want to tell them. For example, it amuses me when my sons sleep in the same positions. I dared to suggest that they might be sharing a dream. Of course, it can have castles and knights or cars and equipment and much more that they love. Based on the Dreamland collection, I knew what to do next.




So I had to depict the transition from sleeping boys to their dreams. The photo had to be not just glued to paper, but “implanted” into the canvas. So I cut out the children so that there are no sheets left in the photo. Instead, there will be a flower meadow where fairies live, which will take us to the world of dreams))) Further-pure fantasy. A magnificent castle on a meadow, a ship sailing among the clouds and a beautiful mythical Pegasus that carries children straight to the stars.




I really want my children to have only happy and bright dreams!


I made a short video about how this canvas was created. Enjoy your viewing! ~Marina
