A few friends came over for a paintin' party. We usually try to get together and paint a couple times a year so we can have rotating art in our homes or make gifts. We planned it for a week so I had time to consider my painting. I couldn't think of anything new I wanted on the walls for decor, but I had been searching for a door wreath. Why not make a painted canvas for door decor?! I love chevron but hadn't yet jumped on the chevron decor trend train. I thought this would be the perfect time to put chevron in my life!
So, at first I thought I could free-hand paint the lines. Thankfully, I convinced myself otherwise and found this tutorial. It was going to require way more work than I expected. However, I knew I would have to do it close to the instructions so it would look right! ;-)
I didn't know what specific colors I wanted to use, but the colors I picked matched wonderfully with a favorite ribbon! And, bonus............ I had everything on hand. Woot. Woot.
|Taped off. It helps to have a guide for this!|
|I used a razor to cut out the design. I was very nervous that the cuts would puncture the canvas or be visible, but neither was the case!|
|It's not perfect, but it's chevron!|
