Easy Watercolor Art Using Painter’s Tape
Sometimes a project should just be easy and simple. So, last Saturday morning, we once again broke out the watercolor paints. I kind of have a thing for watercolor paint these days.
There is just something so soft, ethereal and elementary about it.
And so, while my girl Peanut painted a picture of a doll (she is obviously more talented that I am!), I decided to try an easy canvas for our office gallery wall.
I has some old painter’s tape shaped in triangles. And when I say old, I mean super old – like no chance of it actually sticking old. I think they were meant for taping corners of windows.
I tried a corner of the canvas and the paint ran. But then I decided I kind of liked it that way.
It doesn't have to be perfect.
So I taped off a pattern with the triangles - reminded me of a houndstooth pattern.
And then I randomly filled with different colors – let it dry, removed the tape and I was done.
I also did some other smaller ones, that didn’t make it on the wall (probably will hang them on the other side when it is finished) – just using regular painter’s tape and created a pattern.
This would be a really easy project to recreate with any type of pattern.
And that was it, a simple and quick craft to add some soft color to this corner of our office.
Thanks for reading.
