Easy DIY: Stripey Quote Art
In the spirit of being thorough, I am popping by to show you how I made the cute stripey quote art in my Reading Room.
This project can be summed up in very few words and steps. Pick a quote, put it on a canvas, and paint stripes over/around it. The less perfect it looks, the better.
I chose a favourite Neil Gaiman quote. And, since it was for the reading room, it was a quote about books. Quite fitting, me thinks. I cut a rounded rectangle out of some spare contact paper, smoothed it over the quote, and proceeded with painting gloriously imperfect stripes. I opted for watercolours, which added a level of colour variance to the mix, too.
Let it dry, uncover it, and voila! Perfectly imperfect wordy goodness. And a very appropriate DIY statement piece for a room filled with books.
