Wood Geometric Art

It's the end of July, which is crazy, so it is time for this month's "Craft with Me" post.


 I created this to add to my gallery wall in my craft room and it is a super simple project! 


 You only need a few supplies and this can be done in a short time.


Supplies:
-Wood Canvas (I bought this version at Wal Mart)
-Acrylic Paint
-Painter's Tape
-Graphic Design Tape
-Paint Brushes
-Mod Podge (optional)

Begin by using the painter's tape to tape off the edges. 
I only taped off about a 1/4 in around the edge for a small border.

 Then using graphic design tape or another similar thin type, and tape off whatever pattern that you would like.
I just tape off randomly and added a piece where I wanted.

Time to paint! 
Paint in whatever color scheme you would like. I painted with a lot of white and then picked colors that matched items already in my gallery wall but you could do a monochromatic color scheme, only two or three colors?
Anything you'd like! 

I'll admit, I was super nervous about my final design at this point and actually didn't like it. If it happens to you, relax! The dark tape totally throws you off!

Once you finish painting, remove all the tape to reveal your final product.

And I LOVED it so much better after the tape was removed and the nerves settled down.

Once dry, I gave it a coat of gloss Mod Podge but this is optional.
 
 Then I added it to my gallery wall. 
I added it to the top and I have plans to make an embroidery hoop to add next to it on the left.
 
 I really like how it turned out and it was so easy!! 


You can make all sorts of different patterns though! 
Even triangle, a star, random like this. Just look up some geometric patterns and go to town! 



If you make your own version of Geometric Art I'd love to see it!
