I've always loved the look of the painted ceiling tiles that you can find at Eastern Market.   I've always found them a little bit out of my budget, so I decided to make my own using a stamp, some paint and a canvas.  The total cost of the project was around $20.
My stamps, the one on the right I hand carved from my own design and the one one the left I made from cutting uneven strips out of adhesive fabric foam and sticking it on a piece of card board.  You could also purchase a stamp with a pattern you like on it.
I used a paint brush to put the paint on the stamp, but you could also use a roller or dip the stamp directly into the paint.
Stamp away!  I was sort of going for a more uneven look and I like how the paint mimics the look of the paint wearing off of the ceiling tiles.
All done stamping!  Just waiting for it to dry.
The finished project.  I love how it turned out!
