Transform your photographs into beautiful works of art with just a few scissor snips.
IDEA #1: The first example uses one enlarged photograph cut into triangle shapes. All the triangles pointing to the left are raised on pop dots for additional dimension; this would make a GORGEOUS piece to frame and hang in your home.
IDEA #2: If you're like me, you come home from vacation with tons of scenery photos -- more than you could ever scrapbook or frame (possibly even more than you want to fill an album with). Enlarge several of your best photos, or just print them at standard size -- it really depends on how many triangles you want to get from the original picture. Combine the triangles on one page (or use Photoshop to digitally manipulate your photos and then have a large print made). Look for interesting textural contrasts, as well as color variations; you could achieve a great ombre look with water and sky photos, for example.
IDEA #3: This third example works on the same principle as the second example: portions of the large background image have been replaced with solid color triangles. You could use colored paper or scrapbooking paper, paint, or any other interesting options that you can find.
Elsie Larson posted this simple tutorial to show you how to create a geometric photo art project. Use detailed shots along with alternating text pages (ripped from an old book found at a thrift store) and colored triangles to create one-of-a-kind wall art for your home. You could also digitally create the image in Photoshop and have Persnickety Prints create a Gallery Stand Out print for you.
Hope this inspires you to incorporate triangles into your next photo project -- make sure you share your results with us! We'd love to see them!
Until next week, keep the mojo flowin'!
