If you read my blog yesterday you have seen the geometric or triangular stencils I made for printing. The stencils are hand cut and the original from which I cut the stencil is hand drawn. The little trade secret though is that I use math paper. The squares help me guide the shape drawing and makes sure the spacing is equal to create the most beautiful patterns.
It seemed like a fun idea to have you come up with your own geometric drawing on maths paper.
- maths paper
Think triangles, squares, rectangles…. oh and don’t forget diamonds. Use the faint blue lines as guides and spacers. You can start simply by drawing 1 by 1 cubes with a 1 spacing. Then triangles in a similar way, then go wild. It doesn’t need to be symmetrical…., as long as you enjoy yourself.
P.S. might do this one with the kids as well.
