Geometric Photo Art Project

Geometric Photo Art 1Amanda, of Indie Jane, and I have been dreaming up extra pretty projects for you this coming season. When the idea of a geometic photo collage was tossed around we both got really excited about it! What we love about this project is how personal it can become. I'm thinking of making one with wedding photos for my bedroom… how sweet would that be? 

Geometric Photo Art 2Supplies Needed: Poster board (cut slightly larger than the frame you wish to use), glue or double-sided tape, scissors, triangle template to trace (mine was 2.5 inches on each side of the triangle using a ruler), paint swatches in colors you love, vintage book pages, and a few of your favorite photos.  
Geometric Photo Art Steps1. Cut triangles from a template (so that they are all the exact same size and shape) 2. Arrange the cut-outs on the poster board however you like. Be sure to lay them all out before adhering any triangles, so you can make sure you love your design! 3. I glued the cut-outs (with Mod Podge) onto the page the first time I made this project. The glue caused the poster board to warp a little, so the second time I made it I used double sided tape instead! 4. After the glue has dried completely, trim off excess edges. Frame your art, if you like!  
Geometric Photo Art 4Display your new art in your home! We're huge fans of this pretty mixture of texture, color and photos! Get brave with supply choices, the sky is the limit. XO. amanda + elsie

  • I love this project! I decided to make one but made mine into a frame 🙂 Linked you in my blog post about it so others can swoon, too!

  • I really like this idea! You can use photos that are important to you and quotes that mean something to you too…can not wait to try one!

  • i am using fabric (glued onto card stock) for texture, colored card stock, vintage letters (printed from google) and pictures! such a cute idea! 🙂

  • I’m going to try my hand at this for a v-day gift for my hub 🙂 Perhaps over the weekend (minus Super Bowl crazy sunday). I’m going to be sure to show the end result on my site !

  • that is so simple and cute!! could be done in so many different ways!! xx Alice Barton ♥ The Mow Way

  • Can’t wait to try this. I’d love the look of this in a dark frame with a chunky white matte to really make it pop!!!

  • This is a very fun and cute idea. So clever 🙂

  • I like the mix of vintage pages. I think a smaller version of this makes a pretty handmade card too!

  • It was a beautiful blog, very interesting and very informative. I really enjoyed reading it. Keep it up.

  • I think I finally know what I’m going to do with all the photos/notes/memories I currently keep in a shoebox. Thanks!

  • I love the use of paint swatches… I like the use of anything free. They are free right, because I definitely stole a bunch today if not. 😮

  • Oh wow this is such a great idea! Very fun and creative. It’d be a great conversation piece as people make out the photos and the vintage pages!

  • Love this project! As silly as this may sound, I had never thought of doing this manually, just on photoshop. Clever and really cute.

  • That’s pretty awsome!
    It would be a great gift if in the photos’ place you put photos of your beloved ones!! Like a coll album! 😉

  • love the project, but I agree with Jessica for sure…just a few more pics than book pages and it would be perfect! cute idea though

  • I almost never comment, but I’ve gotta say this project is freaking awesome!! I’ve wanted to do something edgy to contrast with too much ‘cute’ on my kitchen wall, and I can totally see this happening! Thanks so much for this!!!!

  • This is a great idea. Such a fab way to display memories and mementos rather than shoved into a box!

  • I’ve been wanting to do a piece of geometric art, and this is great inspiration! Can’t wait to give it a try.

  • I need to try to make things like this! My house could use some fun art.

  • I think it’s pretty, but I think there should be more photo triangles..b/c my eyes are drawn more to the book pages, so the pictures are lost and it ends up looking like there’s more book pages versus photos. that’s what i would do at least, in my opinion

  • Very nice, would make great thank you cards.
