DIY Project - Fun Thursday with the Muses!

The Muses did a fun project today - a project from DIY Network.  This is acrylic on canvas with a chevron design applied by using blue painters tape and white gesso!  This was a lot of fun! A great afternoon, too!

Which did you do first? The bottles/background or the taping and gesso? Interesting pattern!

Sherry...the acrylic painting comes first, then the blue painters tape creating the chevron design, and cover the surface with white gesso, remove the tape, and voila!!! I painted the edge of the stretched canvas with white gesso also.
The example on the web site was just a beautiful, colorful, abstract painting.
