Sitting on the computer and pinning my heart away is my new hobby. Photography, scrapbooking, pretending to know how to cook & pinning. But I stepped out of my comfort zone yesterday and decided to actually make something I pinned.
It’s based on this print you can buy that’s a really cool herringbone pattern. I saw someone explaining how to make it so I gave it a go. Little did I know in the end, it would be one big fat craft-FAIL.
Actually, this morning I didn’t think it was as bad, but don’t you hate when something doesn’t turn out like you envisioned? I should find a funky frame for it and see how that looks.
STEP 1: I had this old painting I thrifted in my garage. I updated the colors a bit with paint I had on hand.
I was so excited when I started peeling off the tape because it was looking pretty cool. But once I peeled off all the tape I realized that I had it backwards of what I wanted white and what I wanted to show through from the painting. So I didn’t like it. I should have taken a picture at this stage but I was so bugged so I just started taping again and leaving big chunks of white everywhere. Making a messy chevron/herringbone pattern.
I don’t know… what do you think? Fail or win?
I think I need a frame or may it could be cool to layer things in front of or even actually on it. I could tape or stick a bunch of instagrams or Instax on it? That could work.
