If you’ve been following, you know that I set out to have my kids turn a pair of stretched canvases into wall worthy art with nothing more than a paint palette, acrylic paints and painters tape. Now that the paint has dried, the time has come to remove the painters tape. I almost hated to remove the tape, because the canvases are beautiful, even with it in place.
I was afraid I would somehow mess up the canvases while peeling tape, so I set Hubs to the task of removing it (I didn’t want to be the guilty one if the canvases were ruined). Of course, I knew Hubs would be careful, and there was no chance the canvases would be ruined if he were the one peeling tape.
I was simply amazed when the tape was completely removed from both canvases. They are GORGEOUS.
Here’s a few close-ups…
You can see, in the photo on the far left, where the saturated tape allowed a small amount of paint to seep through. No big deal, I think it adds character to the canvas. Every time I look at them, I am just overwhelmed.
My kids painted those.
They are two and four.
I’m sorry folks, but Van Gogh pales in comparison.
I can’t wait to get the canvases up on the wall.
