We liked the original idea, but we wanted square canvases and cleaner lines that didn't allow the paint to bleed. Thanks to the Jo-Anns Labor Day Sale, we got the canvases, spray paint, and painter's tape at 40% off. This would prove to be an even sweeter deal when we made a mistake and had to buy another canvas. (Fortunately, I had another coupon to get the 4th canvas at 40% off as well!)
Here is the blank wall that we wanted to fill.
Canvases with blue painter's tape. We tested one canvas at a time. Unfortunately, the blue painter's tape allowed the spray paint to bleed underneath because it bubbled.
Removing the tape
Let the spray paint dry at least 24 hours. Make sure to remove the very top strip of tape, one at a time.

Hooray for a fun, successful, inexpensive art project!
