  2. 1

    I started off with a blank 16 x 20 canvas. I used painters tape to make the design and used a gift card to get all the bubbles out from the tape.

  3. 2

    All the canvases with the painters tape making the designs. I wanted them all to be different.

  4. 3

    Then the painting began. I just used a sponge brush to paint the canvases. It took 2 to three coats of paint to get the colors to be just right.

  5. 4

    Here are all three canvases after 2 coats, 3 for the middle, of paint. After they were dry I painted the sides, which I really should have done first.

  6. 5

    After they dried and I removed the tape. There were a few places that the tape came up and paint got under so I edged the design with white paint.

  1. I need some paintings for my new house. Thanks for the idea!! :) I'll try it!

  2. Thanks for this. My godchild just moved into his first apartment & I wanted to make as much of his decor as I could to save him money. He's pre-law, & I'm so proud. Made him two if these & he loved them!! Used spray paint though, but still was awesome & looks soo good in his living room.
