Spray a canvas or art board with white or a solid color paint to create the underlining base. The color you use will be the color of the tape stripes. Let it fully dry.
Make a pattern on the board with washi tape or masking tape. This pattern could include triangles, parallel strips, or a random geometric design.
Paint the shapes in between the tape using different colors of acrylic paint. Let it fully dry.
Gently remove the tape to reveal the base-colored stripes.
Hang it on the wall and enjoy!
