Jennifer Blake: a little brightness.

a little brightness.

February 2, 2012

Ever have one of those weeks where you just need some color? A little brightness to make things a little happier? Well I decided that our apartment could use a splash of color so I took a small canvas and went to work!

Step 1: Grab a canvas, some paint brushes, acrylic paint, and frog tape!
Step 2: Arrange the tape in any design you want to show up, just remember the more tape you use the more white you will have once you are done.
Step 3: Get painting! I chose to use 4 different colors and kept them relatively bright. I had to paint a couple coats with some of the colors in order to make them show up better. 
There you have it...a finished product! I can't wait to hang it up and add some splash of color to our white walls. 

Anyone else create something fun this week? Add some color somewhere?!



  1. You are so creative! I think I'd love to use this technique to make a Union Jack to put in a tea nook. Super cute!

    1. love that idea, and I love that you have a tea nook!

  2. That's really cool looking! I would try that, and it would look like a blob of something. But you made something really cool! It'll add some color for sure!


Connecting with you is my favorite. Thanks for stopping by!
