Creating Custom Artwork

This is a project we completed back in 2007 for our then apartment. We wanted custom artwork that we could put in our home; here's what we came up with:

What You'll Need:
Canvas (buy as many as you'd like for your artwork) we bought ours at Michael's Craft Store
Painters Tape
Paint (whatever colors you'd like)

We started by deciding what type of design we wanted to have, we decided on vertical stripes down the canvas' We then painted all of them one color and waited till they dried completely. This is important for the taping. After dried, mark your design with the painters tape and then start painting between where you've marked off.

This is how they looked all finished in our first apartment:
And this is how we hung them in our first home:
The complete project cost us: $25 for 4 pieces of custom artwork. We love them and they go with our decor always.
