A few weekends ago a girlfriend and I were trying to figure out what to do... We often joke about how "cool" we are- mid-twenties, turning in early, spending our evenings being entertained by Gabriel, baking, or watching
One past Saturday was no different- rather than partying it up in Seattle (conveniently a ferry ride away... and as if that was really an option) we gathered some canvas', paint, and tape for a little evening art project. A Herringbone print has been a pin on my craft Pinterest board for quite awhile now and it was time to execute it. Side note, do you know the difference of Chevron and Herringbone? It is pretty subtle but a lot of people mix it up- myself included. Chevron patterns are zig-zags created by a cut angle while Herringbone is a zig-zag created with offset rectangles... see below.
This project boiled down to just a few easy steps! Forgive the less than awe inspiring photography... it was late and I didn't care to use much else other than my i-phone...
Step One: Paint a canvas with acrylic paint.
Step Two: Cover painted canvas (after it has dried) with Frog Tap in the Herringbone pattern. Be sure to use a plastic card to smooth down tape.
Step Three: Strategically peal of a few of the rectangles of tape.
Step Four: Spray white paint on the top and sides of the canvas.
Step Five: Peel off tape and enjoy!
