New Year's Project #2

I was waiting until my second project made it up on the wall to post, but it's still not up, so here it is.



The first part of this project was pretty easy. Just paint a canvas in any way your heart desired.

The next part took the most time. I cut pieces of painter's tape into 1" by 5" pieces. It took a lot of pieces. I had to cut more two or three times. One they're cut, and the painting is dry, put the tape on the painting in a herringbone pattern. I had the inspiration painting open on my screen so I didn't mess it up.

Then, easiest of all, cover the whole thing in white paint. No need to make it look nice, just cover it.

Let it dry a couple hours or overnight and then peel the pieces off. I left a couple on just for effect. And ta-da!

Now I just have to figure out where to hang it.

AND, this project knocks another thing off my 30 by 30 list!
