Stripes, Stripes, and more Stripes!

Hello Lovelies!

Today's post is dedicated to my latest craft project. I wanted a super unique art piece to match my blue and brown bedroom theme so I made it using a canvas, paint, and tape.

Here is the final result:

While mine is a simple brown and blue, you can do any kind of texture or even add spray paint a pattern onto the top, over the tape. Also, instead of doing random stripes you could do vertical or horizontal stripes. 

What you'll need:
-2 Colors of Paint (Or more depending on your pattern)
-Masking tape of any size
-Paint Brush

Start off with your blank canvas.

Color your bottom layer. This is the color the stripes will be.

Add your tape with whatever style you want whether it be vertical, horizontal, or diagonal stripes.

Paint your top color on. I did 2 coats of the blue, and I suggest you do the same. 

Wait for your paint to dry and then peal off and hang up! It's super easy and looks really neat

Love Always, Kelsey.
