DIY Canvas Wall Art

The other day I was sitting on my bed with these canvases trying to figure out how to use them for my room. I've had them for almost a year so I figured it was about time to use them. I had a roll of painters tape near me so this is what I came up with one lazy afternoon...
I'm not much of an artist so I needed something simple and easy to create...
I took blue painters tape and taped three stripes randomly across the canvas.
Mixed together some white paint with the coral paint that I used to paint this dresser
Pulled back the painters tape and....
 Ta-Da! I hung it above my "vanity" area in my room. I'm sorry that it looks like a complete mess here but I am still trying to figure out a nice way to organize my makeup/hair products (Suggestions please!).


I made this with the other canvas....


Next to my bedside table (pretty much the only other place in my room that it would go). I framed it with a silver frame that I needed to hang. I have one more canvas left and am still deciding what I want to make of it and if I want to paint another color or maybe staple some fabric around it? Any ideas?

that's such a very awesome simple idea! I like it a lot!
I see you have a furrbaby too in the background!

I used to be really crafty. I have frames up in my apartment of my cats. I cut pictures out and put it on a scrapbooking paper and then stickers and framed it.

For magnets I just need to get the proper glue but I made magnets out of bottle caps. With scrapbooking paper in it.

I'll put a picture up on my blog if you want to see.
