Several weeks ago I showed you my cheery Back Porch Makeover (yes, I'm still talking about that). And, last week I shared the so-simple tutorial for my Recycled, Hanging Glass Vases.
Which leads me to today. Today I'm sharing the easy-as-can-be tutorial for, what I shall henceforth refer to as, Packaging Tape Art.
It all started when I spotted this fun, yellow packaging tape at Joann's Fabric. I snatched it up with nary a plan for it's use.
(All that junk by the checkout line? Yep, I'm their target audience.)
I paired the packaging tape with an old canvas I'd previously snatched up on another impulse buy.
(Hey, would you pass up a $0.99 canvas print that could so-very-easily be spray-painted white and revitalized with...packaging tape??)
(I didn't think so.)
To complete this art project:
1) start with a blank canvas (either purchased that way or spray-painted that way)
2) create random stripes by placing decorative packaging tape at varying widths apart
3) use tiny stamps to write a short-but-sweet sentiment
4) display. step back. admire. move on.
My canvas says "come on get happy" because that's the first thing that popped in my head after I saw the delicious, yellow, paisley stripes.
I'm happy, indeed!
In case you haven't figured it all out, I also used the tape to add random lines on a white, melamine plate for my wall decor. And, the best part? I have a heckuva lot more tape to play with.
Whatever will I do with it next??
