Simple but Effective Artwork

Here is a simple way to create amazing pieces of art for your space, they are super easy and quick to make but look super cute and stylish.
Here are just a few of the many options out there, I chose to do some cool scenery in the form of some common shapes on a4 paper; I used binder clips to attach them to my wall but you could frame them or even just tack them up onto the wall.


- coloured/patterned paper
- plain white paper
- scissors
- gluestick
- maybe some images to look at
- some shapes to trace
- an imagination

  All I did was cut one background colour then a colour for my mountain and one for the hill. I then cut them down to shape and stuck them together before neatening the edges and finally I stuck it to my a4 paper and wrote a label on the bottom.  For this one I wanted to try something a bit different so I used a patterned paper for the background but still followed the exact same steps as before but just using a few more layers. This last design is a more simple one but I think it looks just as effective. (it was a lot easier to make too haha)

Some tips:

- Make sure your hands are CLEAN, you don't want to ruin your project by getting smudges all over it.
- Try to use colours that match or look aesthetically pleasing, this makes your overall project look ten times better if your colours go together and match nicely.
- DON'T RUSH take your time to make sure your cuts are smooth and your edges are clean.
- Stick to a theme, if you are creating more than one to line up on a wall try to theme the colours for that added wow factor (you could even try what I did by making the mountains in each artwork the same bright colour for added effect)

Have fun making your own creative artwork :)

Wall Art Ideas

Here are just a few simple examples of wall art:

The first idea is use something you already have, weather that's a hat or bag or in my case a flower crown. I simply stuck a nail in the wall (you could use command hooks if you don't want to damage the wall) and I think it adds lots of colour and personality to my room and it also looks cool :)

Another way to spice up your bedroom walls is by using Washi tape, its really simple and you can customize it to whatever design you like. I chose to do arrows and it only took like 5 minutes - trust me it's really easy.

Here's another example of using Washi tape. Here I cut roughly 5 cm strips and stuck them on my wardrobe door in crosses. It was super easy and the good thing is when you get sick of the design you can just peel it off and try something else.

I hope you try these and enjoy them
