DIY Modern Geometric Wall Art

hey

How are you guys doing? I know, I know…I haven’t posted in two weeks. I’m a mess. An embarrassment to bloggers around the world. But honestly, I actually have a valid(ish) excuse this time! See, on top of schoolwork, piano practice and not going to the gym, I’ve been spending most of my free time working on putting together a portfolio to go to design college next year. I’ve also been spending a lot of time watching  cookery videos on Youtube, but we can just ignore that part. Seriously though, on a side note, if any of you guys are putting together an art porfolio or have done so in the past  please comment below and let me know if you have any tips/advice to share!

Anyways, now that I’ve wasted one paragraph defending my inability to stick to a blogging schedule, let’s get back to the DIY, shall we? A few weeks back I made this cool geometric wall art but never got around to editing the photos and writing down the tutorial. It’s just been hanging on my bedroom wall staring at me accusingly ever since, so today I finally got around to finishing the post and sharing it with you guys! It’s such an easy and inexpensive way to add a modern, trendy touch to your room. Plus, you guys can personalise it by experimenting with different coloured crepe paper and triangle sizes to suit your own style! I’m so happy with how this one turned out – I think the the colour scheme is perfect for autumn and the combination of PVA glue and crepe paper creates a really interesting texture and visual effect on top of the card.

Oh and by the way, if you guys enjoy my DIYs and want to see more of them make sure to check out my Instructables account  where I have a bunch of other tutorials that haven’t been posted on my blog! And now, without furder ado, let’s make some Triangle Wall Art!

What you need

wall-art-2

PVA Glue

A3 sheet of thick Card paper

Crepe paper in 3 different colours

Scissors

Gold Paint *optional

Steps

wall-art-3

  1. Cut out three large triangles from the crepe paper (one in each colour).
  2. Arrange paper triangles onto the card in an overlapping vertical pattern.
  3. Carefully glue down the triangles with the PVA glue.
  4. Leave to dry and you’re done! I also painted on a few gold designs  to make the wall art a little more exciting.

    Thanks for the like on my post. Hope you can use some of the tips to at least keep art supplies from becoming a chaos (very hard to do, trust me). 🙂

    And don’t worry about not posting for two weeks, I’d be glad if I can get back to posting every couple of weeks but life gets in the way. 😉
    Good luck on getting into design college!

    Good job. I wish I had gone to design/art school. You will have so many options to choose from when you graduate. Good luck on your portfolio!

    That looks amazing! I am not an art expert, I have never made an art portfolio (pretty much cause I suck at drawing haha), but I do love and appreciate art! I love to write. I think writing is a form of art, as well. My advice for you is to choose the paintings in which you have poured your soul into. Cause, after all, this is what art is about, right? 🙂 Even if you have doubts about one of your works, if they make you feel a certain way, than I think they have achieved their goal. Good luck with your portfolio and have a nice day! 🙂 P.S. Sorry for the long rant, I just feel very talkative today haha.

    I’ve actually been slacking on my own blog but due to lack of motivation, but I got my mojo back this week thankfully!

    I have put together 2 portfolios in my time and am always working on keeping it fresh. My main piece of advice would be not to put anything in that you’re not 100% proud of because if you do, you will cringe when your interviewers look those pages, making you less confident! When I’m not 100% proud of something, I take it out or work on it with Photoshop. As I develop my style, I still have pieces where I’m like, “Ok that needs to come out or it needs to get edited before I show it again!” Good luck, I hope to see a post on the final folio!
