I'm not sure why I feel it's my mission to share with the world how to create your own artwork, but I do. And maybe it's in part because I really feel like our homes should reflect our personalities and we shouldn't have to take out a loan to make them feel stylish, unique and special. The coolest part about living in this century (in my opinion) is not just that everything is becoming more global (fashion, art, photography) but that the rules for style are much less rigid than in the past. And when rules become less rigid, that means we have more fun, right?
I made this "Connect The Dot" artwork with a sharpie marker in less than 15 minutes and you can too. Here's how.
All you'll need:
Thick Art Paper (works best but any paper will do)
The ability to draw dots and lines
Let's get started.
Cut your paper to the size of your frame (in my case I was using an oval frame which I tend to re-use a lot for whatever reason)
Draw dots in any pattern on your paper. I practiced on another piece of paper first and sort of tried to repeat that same pattern, but seriously, any design will work!
Begin drawing lines in one stroke from dot to dot
Continue connecting all the dots, adding additional dots if you wish. As I was moving along, I did add an additional dot. Remember--no hard rules here! You're just connecting dots!
Finish and frame!
