my home is a fine art museum ;)

hello lovely people....i hope everyone is having themselves a fantastic week!
today i am going to share a recent artwork project with you...
it's a collage of different colored/patterned papers that i first saw
on pinterest via bonnie's beautiful blog: going home to roost. she put together
a great tutorial that was easy to follow.

it's an fun and fresh patchwork/cube art piece that was fairly simple to construct:

here is what I used to make it:
- pretty paper/anthro magazines
- modge podge
- scissors
- tape
-a right triangle with a 45 degree angle (to make the diamonds)

The trick to making the cubes look 3D is to cut out
an equal amount of light, medium, and dark toned pieces.
Put the light on top the dark on the bottom right
and the medium on the bottom left of the cube...
i definitely recommend taping each cube together before you paste it down.
 That way you can better control the overall outcome of texture/color dispersal.

i chose papers that had lots of intricate details and looked very textural.
I used a 5" white mat and framed with a 3" thick wood frame that
was a 90% off HOBBY LOBBY find!...woo hoo! 
and i'm loving it hanging in the corner of our living room!
hope you feel inspired and are proud of me.
peace out.
