February 13, 2017 • Contributor: Lindi From Love Create Celebrate

Do you ever go into ten stores with something specific in mind, but can’t quite find it anywhere? That perfect grey color on a throw pillow? The perfect artwork to compliment your bedroom décor? Anything throwing you positive vibes? Happens to me ALL the time! Which is exactly why I started creating my own custom décor. If I can’t find what I’m looking for, I’ll make it! There are so many beautiful ideas already on the Cricut Home Décor page, but I wanted to highlight one of my favorites. This simple Modern Circle Art is the perfect example of simple, customized art work, and I’ll show you how easy it was to make!

Materials:

Start by logging into the Cricut Design Space and opening up the Circle Art design in Design Space and turn on your Cricut Explore Air 2. These circles are sized to fit a 12”x12” square canvas. The variations in size and thickness of the circles are what give this piece so much character! Make sure to use a LightGrip cutting mat because the vellum is delicate!

 

Vellum Circles

Use images and shapes from the Cricut Design space to create your own custom geometric art work! Get a personalized, modern look in no time at all!

Next, you want to paint your canvas a solid colour, so that the frame won’t cause any funny shadows on your artwork when it’s done. When your paint is dry, grab the Cricut Vellum sheets that you cut out, and place them around the canvas, playing with the layout and order of the sheets until you are happy.

 

Project

Since vellum is a transparent, thin material, I didn’t want to use a glue that would leave marks or bumps on the vellum. Instead I used spray adhesive – spraying the back of each piece (inside a cardboard box to prevent overspray), and then placed that piece on the canvas.

 

Project

Overlap sheets of transparent Cricut Vellum to create beautiful blended colours! Vellum is the perfect material to use for your personalized home décor.

Place each circle down starting at the top and moving around the circle. Press it firmly in place when you are happy with the placement.
