Easy Art in 1.2.3 : Modern Geometric Peach

Guess what today is?  It’s the third of my new mini series called Easy Art in 1.2.3 : Modern Geometric Peach.  In light of warmer weather, cheerful colors and just getting a little creative with some fruit, I am going to go step-by-step on how YOU can make your own art work for a fraction of the cost!  I love this painting, too because it really could be any fruit or object, for that matter.

Modern Geometric Peach supplies

To create my peach shape, I got very technical and used my open hand as a basic guide.

Using a pencil, I then drew a light line down the middle of my peach and created a simple geometric pattern on one side.

Then, using my different colors, I started to fill in each shape.  Go nice and slow to keep those crisp lines.

Once, the painted side of my peach was completed and dried it was time to apply the copper foil tape!  Can I take a moment to jump for joy that Michaels has started carrying copper FOIL tape.  My friend, Amy, from Homey Oh My first shared the news and you better believe I literally ran to my car and bought some immediately.  I wish you could get it online, but it doesn’t appear that you can yet.

Modern Geometric Peach steps

I applied the tape and then used an x.acto knife to gingerly cut away the excess.  Follow the light pencil peach shape you drew during the very first step.

The result is a perfectly modern geometric peach!  Perfect for adding some summer to your home.

I am trying to decide where to put this little beauty and I think it might go so sweetly in my little girl’s room.

I have been loving this monthly art series because it’s pushing me to sit down and be creative with paints?  Do you enjoy getting out paint brushes and taking time to paint?  I’m wanting to try watercolor soon, but I’m nervous!

    1. Haha, you are funny! Be sure to send me a picture or tag me if you make something similar… I’d love to see it! Ps- I feature folks that try my projects in my monthly newsletter, too. =)

  1. I love everything about this project- I’ve never actually used Washi tape (I know, I’m totally behind the curve!) but it may be time to get on board with that!

    Thank you for sharing! I stopped by from Creativity Unleashed.

    1. Oh Jessy, I think you will love Washi tape! Head to your nearest craft store (or any store for that matter) and buy just one roll. They normally aren’t much… and then get to crafting!!! =)

    1. Thanks, Gwen! As soon as I head they had the gold, copper and silver tapes I RAN over to Michaels and there it was in the washi tape section. What a happy day, ha.
