Recently I have been hit with the craft bug. I just want to paint and create pretty much anything. The walls in my bed a room are so blah and i've been trying to find the right painting forever (at the right price...can you say broke college student!). After perusing the awesomeness that is Google, I came across a blog called Makeunder My Life. Jess made these incredible painting of a chevron pattern that I just had to try.
Materials needed:Materials Used:
- stretched canvases
- acrylic paint
- Large, soft bristled brush
- 1 roll blue painters tape
- Chevron pattern stencil found on Sunset.com via Kelly and Olive
After printing out your stencil you are going to use the thumbtacks to mark the zig-zag patterns. You do this by placing a thumbtack at every point on the stencil. (Peaks and Valleys) After this fill in the where the white would be on the stencil with blue painters tape.
Afterwards I just filled in the canvas with paint and waited for it to dry. After the paint had dried I removed the painters tape.
My finished product.My paintings are no where near as perfect as Jess' but I love them. The imperfections make them my own.
