Masking Tape Art

I needed to replace the flower picture in our guest bath with something that grooved a little better with our Morrocan theme. I wanted to do this quickly and cheaply and because I'm kind of impulsive and reclusive I wanted to do it with items I already owned so I wouldn't have to leave the house. Well, it may not have as many uses as duct tape, but I had masking tape handy so I decided to roll with it.

I grabbed an old canvas and got to work with the tape.

I just began taping in straight lines trying to make the lines as even as possible while still trying to stay random, if that makes any sense at all.

I used an old can of spray paint left over from a failed bookshelf painting experiment and went to town on my 8x10 canvas.

I immediately removed the tape to get my lines as clean as possible and left the canvas to dry for an hour or so.

Here's the finished "artwork" in the guest bath. The green is just so fresh and fun and for a grand total of $0.00, I don't think I could've done better!


Happy Halloween Everybody!
