One of yesterday's DIY posts featured triangles and potatoes. Today, I am staying with the geometric theme, but exploring the value of our four sided friend, the rectangle. And rather than using something organic to create the shape, I am opting for something most (if not all) of us crafty folks have around the house…blue painters tape.

If you have an affinity for all things self-adhesive like Jessica Jones of How About Orange, you will definitely enjoy this DIY. Using torn pieces of tape, Jessica created a pattern on her piece of fabric. She then painted over the pattern with fabric paint leaving a lovely geometric print.

The torn edges of the tape and the inconsistent widths of the tape pieces give the print a one of a kind feel. And why limit yourself to rectangles? — the patterns and shapes one could make with the tape are endless!
