Modern Triangle Frame Tutorial from Courtney at A Little Craft In Your Day
I’m really excited today because we’ve got an amazing guest post from the very talented Courtney from A Little Craft In Your Day. Now Courtney isn’t your average craft blogger… She’s a sophomore in high school and wants to inspire people everywhere to out a little crafty in their day, every day! To say this girl is talented is an understatement as is the fact that she’s hardworking and dedicated. I’m so very pleased to introduce you to her and her craft!
Hey Everyone! My name is Courtney Chambers, usually you can find me crafting my little heart out over on A Little Craft In Your Day. But today I am here guest posting and pretending to be Allison, just kidding! Wouldn’t that be fun though! I get so much inspiration from Allison’s site and hopefully one of you will find some inspiration in today’s post! I thought I would share some simple teen room decor, maybe a geometric pattern? and glitter? Yeah! Sounds good to me! So here we go!
I started out with:
- a Square Wood Frame
- 4 colors of acrylic paint
- Sparkle Mod Podge
- Painters tape (optional)
- a pencil
- a paint brush
- and a ruler
The first thing I did was draw horizontal lines across the entire frame every 1 inch apart. Use the ruler to get them perfectly straight!
Next, I created diagonal stripes spaced 1 inch apart.
I painted every other triangle in every other column black first. If that made no sense, I’m sorry and hopefully this picture will help you visualize it better. This is also were the tape could potentially come in handy and give you crisper lines. I however decided to just do it free hand.
Then I went ahead and painted all of the other triangles in the rows with black, white!
Continue the pattern with your other 2 colors. Mine were pink and orange as you can obviously see! You will also want to pick a color to paint the edges.
Once you have painted in all of the triangles, it is sparkle time! Everyone like a little sparkle! I achieved what I think is the perfect level of sparkle with the Mod Podge Sparkle formula. Apply an even coat over the entire frame.
Now just add a cute picture of you and your friend and you are ready to rock and roll with your DiY modern triangle frame. I just love how you can make a modern, sophisticated, and sparkly frame with minimal supplies!
Thanks so much for having me Allison and happy crafting to all!
