masking tape art

I think the title says it all on this one.  I took great photos of the whole process to share with you but they disappeared when my hard drive crashed along with 5 years old of photos. 

Still wanna cry just thinkig about that.

Moving on...
My assistant was very happy to help me show you the goods used.

I grabbed a canvas 2 pack from Michaels (don't forget your coupon), some masking tape,  paint, paint brush, and this little decorative tree I got from Ikea a couple years back that has yet to find it's purpose in my home.

I basically followed the design of the tree with the tape making sure to split the tree in the middle of the two canvases.  After I was done taping the design I started painting.  I needed 2 coats.  When dry pull off the tape and wa-la.  My lines weren't perfect (which is what I was going for) but I bet if I used some green or blue painter's tape they would be.  I used the color we used on the opposite wall.

So there you have it.  For under $10 that blank spot on top of my dresser is finally filled.  Oh, and I must thank my fabulous hubby who saw that I hung these completely crooked and fixed them for me.   Thanks Honey!

What a great project! I have two canvases I bought (with my coupon) at Hobby Lobby several months ago. I haven't done anything with them yet because I was afraid I would mess up, but I think I can handle this. :) Thanks so much for sharing!
