DIY Geometric Canvas Art: Paint Between the Lines - #FrogTape #2017DesignTrends


Ever wondered how painters got those straight lines? Wonder no more, because we're going to show you how you can too, with FrogTape, as well as spruce up a wall in your home with your very own custom designed geometric canvas art.


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape®. All opinions are 100% mine.

One thing I love doing is decorating my home. I have quite a few paintings in every room in my home. However, none of those paintings were done by me. They were all purchased at home decor stores. One of my favorites was purchased for my birthday last year for my 40th, and I spent a few hundred dollars getting it. Decorating your home, however doesn't have to cost you hundreds of dollars, and for those who think that they can't have a beautifully decorated home, with one of a kind paintings, I'm going to show you how you can with the help of FrogTape.


While I love my home, my entry way left a lot to be desired. Sure, I have an entryway table that I decorate for the seasons, I have a wall mirror that I always have to glance at when leaving the house, but besides that, there was nothing else on the walls. I have always wanted wall art, but because of the changing seasons, I needed to find something that would fit in, or maybe even do my own for the changing seasons. I decided to do my own. I took a look at the 2017 FrogTape® Design Trends and the Haute Homemade really stood out to me. Instead of purchasing another piece for my wall, how about making something instead? I knew exactly what I had to do and to be honest, it worked out to be even less expensive that me purchasing it. With the money I saved, I can do a few more for the Fall and Christmas season that's coming up.

DIY Geometric Canvas Art
Supplies Needed:

Canvas
Paints of Choice (You can use acrylic paints and a brush or spray paints)
FrogTape


Directions:

(This is going to be your art, so however you do the design is up to you, but you're going to need FrogTape to help you.)

Step 1: Start by getting your canvas and FrogTape. Use your FrogTape to get the shapes you desire. There is no perfect way to do this, but remember this is your masterpiece.


Step 2: Once you have your shapes the way you want, go ahead and start painting in the open spaces. Don't worry about it getting on the tape, it will be ok. You're going to get those sharp lines that I was talking about, because FrogTape® brand painter’s tapes are treated with patented PaintBlock® Technology, a super-absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed and the need for touch-ups. The results are crisp, clean paint lines the first time.


Step 3: Once you've painted in between the lines, go ahead and pull that tape off. What you'll be left with will be nice clean lines and a geometric design that you designed. It will be your work of art. Just look at how clean my lines are!!


I would never have been able to do this if I didn't have FrogTape! Now you too can make your own geometric one of a kind art, in the color of your choosing to complement your decor. You no longer have to spend hundreds of dollars and these will all be originally yours. So grab some canvas, some paint and don't forget your FrogTape.
