Make geometric art paintings using canvas, abstract art patterns and cut paper strips. Simple and beautiful geometric pattern and geometric design created with acrylic paints on canvas.
DIY Geometric Art Paintings
Geometric Paintings Gallery Wall in the dining room with mirror and family photos.
I’m always in search of constructive ideas to keep my kids busy during summer vacations. One of those days I painted the canvases and gave a paper to paint on along with me.
Here’s what he came up with:
Creating Wall Art with Kid’s Artwork
I thought that piece of artwork was fantastic. I framed and hung it in our living room.
Acrylic painting on canvas fail
While on the other hand, my vision for the abstract painting failed big time!
It was looking way to dull on the walls. So, instead of choosing shades of the dominating color in the room. I decided to work with the accent colors I have in this room. Which I’ll be sharing later on! I came up with this:
Acrylic Painting on canvas
(Not quiet convincing still!)
I thought about various ideas for days. From using vinyl to shadow boxes, writing quotes to decoupaging photos. From using patterns like honeycomb to herringbone. Honestly, what not!
Behold my geometric painting wall art “Pattern”. Who would have thought I’ll find inspiration at foot! I then did the simplest thing ever to settle the canvas to match my space.
Geometric Art Paintings Tutorial
Measured and divide the canvas into a square grid. I found that it comprises of twelve 3″ x 3″ squares.
Cut two 12″ x 12″ sketch papers into 1″ wide and 3″ long strips using decorative edge scissors.
Placed the strips on the canvas. Moving them around and putting them where ever they look best. I settled for a geometric pattern/ design.
With the help of mod podge, decoupaged the strips on the canvas.
Brushed a coat of mod podge on the top to seal the paper on the canvas as well.
And that’s about it all.
The canvas went from Dull to Bright to Balanced.
And I also added my kids photos to balance it out.
I love the way it looks! What do you think?
