As the summer sets in on a forty-three degrees day in Sydney, I decided to stay home and cool off and chill. Today's no weather to be messing around in. With the fans blasted on at the highest notch: 3, I laid back for a day infront of the computer watching the newest episode of Revenge. However, I'm a fidgety one, so I just had to multitask. Grabbing an old new canvas that was collecting dust and some paint I made this little bad boy, a geometric canvas wall print. Diy time seems like such a lost past time with me these days. So while multitasking, I snapped a couple of pics for a swifty little tutorial.
You will need:
- paint: I didn't want to use my good paints, so I just grabbed this kiddy acrylic set
- canvas: whatever size works
- tape: painters tape works best, but I found that scotch tape worked the same
Map out what you want your print to look like, where you want the lines to go
With the tape, tape down your lines
And paint, I chose a pastel palate and hence really loading up on that white paint.
Let dry and peel the tape off.
Done! Looks not bad I reckon for a silly afternoon activity.
Decided to make another one for fun.
