Yes, you can commemorate the day of the dead with these unique “picture into words” canvases from Photo to text gifts! Long have people of Mexican descent celebrated the Day of the Dead. This is a day, in the Mexican culture, traditionally thought to be the day that the veil between the living and the dead is the thinnest. This is when families will celebrate their loved ones who have passed on to the next life. It is a beautiful tradition and one you can celebrate when you put your photo into words.
With photo-to-text, you can literally change your picture into words. The first thing you have to do is decide on the picture that you want. Does your family have a Day of the Dead celebration? Do you get a photo taken of the entire family or can you at the next celebration? This would be the absolute perfect picture to use for this artwork. Think of how that picture could completely showcase the holiday and all its traditions? Your family may be dressed up in traditional Day of the Dead wear. Everyone’s faces can be painted up to look like the well-known sugar skull.
Putting your Photo into Words
Even if you are not Mexican, this is still a great way to commemorate all of your beloved family members who have passed away. Any family photo would work well for this idea. There are so many different places to grab a great family portrait. You can get one taken at holidays, graduations, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and more. Of course, you can always hire a professional photographer to come over and get a beautiful family portrait.
Of course, there are other great photo options that would work just as well. How about the matriarch and patriarch sitting in their familial home? Maybe a picture of grandparents who passed on a while back but who were a very important part of your life? Something like an old family portrait from generations ago that started your family on the path it is on today. Perhaps you, your spouse and your child. If the picture is taken on the day of the dead or if you dress up as you would on the holiday, the picture will just add a special flair that will let anybody viewing the artwork to know just what this picture is all about.
Time to turn your photo into words
Now, maybe you are wondering what it means to turn your photo into words? It is simple! Picture this. When you stand back from the canvas you see your beautiful photograph but as you get closer the words you have chosen come into focus so that you are able to read them. How cool is that?
So, what words will you choose? There are virtually endless options of words you can choose from. You could write down a history of the Day of the Dead and what it means to your family. You can write down all of the traditions your family enjoys during Day of the Dead celebrations. Another great idea would be to list your loved ones who have passed on, with their birth and death date listed. This is truly in the spirit of the holiday.
Now that you are spinning these ideas around in your head, it is time to choose which combination of words and photo you will use. Maybe a family picture and a list of traditions? How about an ancestral photo and a description of what the Day of the Dead means? You cannot go wrong with anything you choose. This artwork is all about creating a personalized, one of a kind, unique gift for your family to love and enjoy!
