It started when I saw this DIY post on Refinery 29. Paint an abstract paiting and add a pattern? I can do that. In reality, it was a total pain in the ass.
The painting part was easy. One afternoon, my friend Lindsey and I went to the art store, bought a canvas and supplies and started painting. It was a beautiful afternoon, we were outside on her patio and it was a ton of fun. She finished her project that night and it turned out really well.
I was hosting a dinner party that evening so I didn't finish. In fact, I procrastinated all week because I knew the second half of the project was going to suck. It involved making a grid on the painting with painters tape and then painting over it to create the pattern. It.was.so.tedious. I begged my husband to help (nope..this is your "art" project). I cursed. I taped and painted.
The final result: pure crap. Sigh. Not every project turns out well. Back to the drawing board.
