If you couldn't tell from my last post, I'm definitely loving chevron prints right now. So when I started brainstorming for my engagement photoshoot I decided I wanted to incorporate the fabulous print into our props! I can't want to get back all of our pictures to share with you but for now I give you a sneak peek of the picnic we had :-) That's Gladys above, our seriously amazing photographer, taking some stills of my new favorite picnic blanket!
I was searching the internet for cute picnic blankets and found this blog post by Twig and Thistle. It looked simple enough, so my fiance and I went to Home Depot to pick up a canvas drop cloth, painter's tape, and gold spray paint. It took us 2 or 3 hours to get it all done and discovered afterwards that we forgot to tape off a few small spots, but I love how it turned out! The only thing I would do differently is maybe prime it first so the color really pops. I have a canvas tote that I've been meaning to spray paint with a fun print so now I'm definitely motivated! Here are a few more pics from start to finish.
|Create a template. We used cardboard and measured out for 3 inch stripes on our 5X5 blanket.|
|Trace your template onto your blanket and be sure to tape off all of the areas you don't want painted.|
|Paint! We used two cans of Rustoleum Gold Spray Paint.|
|Let dry and remove your tape.|
|Hello pretty blanket!|
