Great, right? Of course, I immediately pinned it and started thinking of my own canvas art. Where would I put it? What color would I use?
I didn’t bother to answer those questions before going out to buy the canvas.
I bought two and put them on the dining room table (my crafting spot at the time). There they sat for quite some time except for when we needed to move them for large family dinners. Trying to motivate myself, I picked up some Frog Tape from Home Depot one day. Yeah, it sat right on top of the canvas.
While thinking over the potential of a bedroom redo, I decided that our bedroom, redo or not, would be the perfect place to put my geometric art. So, I taped. Only I didn’t really measure or mark the canvas in any way. I just taped…yep, that’s how we roll here.
The geometry wasn’t exactly perfect in my taping but that didn’t really bother me. After taping them, the canvases sat on the dining room table for awhile because I couldn’t decide where I wanted them to live once they were complete. With our new bedroom in the works, I decided they would be perfect for above our bed. So, I went to Home Depot and got a sample of the green color that we plan to use for accents.
First, I painted the entire canvas white though to “seal” the tape down and (hopefully) prevent that annoying bleeding.
Once that was dry, I painted the canvases the green color I had purchased.
I allowed that to dry for a bit and then went to pull up the tape before it dried completely. I was hoping to prevent it from pulling up the paint when I removed the tape. Unfortunately, I pulled it too soon and it caused the paint to bleed just a little bit.
I broke out the small paint brush and some white paint to fix the bleed marks on the canvas. It was so time consuming but I finally finished it.
I have a second one that is slightly different but it still needs some major touch-up work!
