I recently have been making a more concerted effort to match decor items around my house and actually start decorating. So as I thought about what I wanted, I thought of the gorgeous canvas paintings she did in her house. Lightbulb! I would have her help me make cute canvas paintings for my house. So the plan was hatched!
Here is a picture of the one in her living room complete with my sloth of a husband and the gorgeous chunky blanket I made her (don't worry a blog on that blanket will come eventually).
So my colors were chosen and we started painting! I think she used this tutorial when she did her original one.
|Step 1: Paint on the colors & let dry.|
|Jaclyn must've blocked this part from her memory because it literally took us TWO HOURS to get this tape on there. It was insane.|
|But the finished project is so worth it!|
We did have other fun besides painting! We did some shooting and swimming. We always have fun hanging with these two.
We also painted a set of three canvases for my office at work. We just found the picture on google images when we searched "tape canvas art."
|First we taped the canvases in the pattern we wanted. We made the mistake of leaving them all taped together so we had to go back and free-hand the edges. We probably should've cut the tape and added some on the edges after we separated the canvases.|
|It looked awesome once we peeled the tape off! It looks perfect in my office with yellow walls! |
Thanks Jaclyn for being the best sister and built-in-best-friend for always. I love you so much and can't wait to see you guys soon!
