You could be like my grandma and put a bandaid over her face. True story, my aunt killed my uncle and every family photo with her in it has a bandaid covering her face. 🤷‍♀️ Granted, these are not photos on display in her home. I found them in a hat box.

I am not super artsy by any means but if all you have is the images on the canvas and not a digital copy you could reprint what if you somehow carefully cut out the pictures you plan to keep and creatively attached them to wood in a sort of rustic way? If you do have copies of the original pictures I would just make a new collage without her in it. Trying to blur her out will only bring more attention to her. If for some reason you don’t have a copy of the pictures it’s possible the original photographer might. Best of luck! Also, I must admit I’m super curious as to the back story of all this now…

My mom took a big family photo and used a pen to scribble out both my ex-husband’s and my sister’s ex-husband’s faces. laughing
