ScotchBlue Painter's Tape Painter Party

Hello everyone...Today, I am the first blogger to post about the ScotchBlue painter's tape Painter Party! ScotchBlue sent over some tape, and I got to work with it...I'm here today to show you guys what I came up with. Obviously, I use this stuff almost everyday, so it was not hard to come up with a project! In the series, myself and 4 other bloggers will show you guys what we came up with with our tape, then give you the chance to win your own. Here is the list of bloggers in the series (which is scheduled to go "live" at 12pm everyday!):


  1. Lindsay @ Living With Lindsay *Continue to this blog next!*
  2. Amy @ Maison Decor 8
  3. Sara @ House Bella
  4. Katie @ Craptastic Katie

Please check out their projects the rest of this week!

Also, I have this little tidbit from ScotchBlue for you guys:

If you’d like a chance to win a sample of ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape with Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector for your own project, simply comment on my post and share how you’d use ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape in your next project! For a second chance to win, tweet @ScotchBlueBrand “I want #supersharppaintlines for my next project!” Feel free to comment on the other blogs in the party too. They’ll all be giving away samples!
Now, onto my project!
I wanted to show you guys how I used the tape in a little different way than the "expected" stripes or line-taping-off! I use this tape almost everyday, for ALL kinds of projects. In this project, I used the tape to create lines for a pagoda in a Chinoserie nursery mural that I painted. Check it out!

Ahhh, lots o' tape = happy me
Getting started on my mural - as you can see illustrated here, the tape helped to create architectural lines in the pagoda that would've taken forever if I'd have just drawn them and painted them in. I measured the distance across and down, and taped accordingly:

A little tip for creating even smoother lines: take a damp rag and wipe down the top of your tape before painting.
here is a photo after I painted over my lines (since I know it's kind of hard to see)

and here is my final product!

See the lines created by the ScotchBlue tape?

ps this nursery belongs to (and was styled by) the fabulous Heather at Ivy and Vine - isn't it beautiful? It's just my style, and I LOVE it.

There you go! I hope you guys enjoyed the little example of just one way I use ScotchBlue painter's tape. Don't forget to comment and let me know how you'd use it for a chance to win your own, and don't forget to check out Lindsey's post tomorrow!
Disclaimer: ScotchBlue Brand reached out to me to participate in the ScotchBlue Painting Party to celebrate the launch of their new ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape with Edge-Lock Paint Line Protector. My post represents my honest experience with ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape. I am not being paid for my answers, but I did receive ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape to assist in completion.

  14. Love what you did - I want to do something for my boys - one likes blue, one likes red. Trying to incorporate without going obvious stripes.
    Your idea is neat how to start with a simple geometric and build on it.
