What to do with a big white wall and a sudden surplus of free time? Well, if you're a modern art fan like me, then creating your own post-it work might be just up your alley. Early in 2013 I found myself needing something to take my mind off things. Having left my vast art collection in northern Europe I was faced with a tough choice. Live with a white wall, forever mocking me, or do the unthinkable. Make my own art. I chose the latter.
I was stunned that I couldn't find a short yet comprehensive guide on creating your own post-it wall art. I will admit, it's not exactly the most arduous task I've ever undertaken, but I learned a lot over the 3 day weekend I spent piecing this together and thought I might as well share it with other budding artists.
As I've already alluded to in the introduction, this work is the result of me needing to clear my head and focus on something more productive than bothersome uncontrollable emotions. But more than that, it also allowed me to create something I find far more inspiring than a white wall.
A nice benefit of post-it art is the fact that it leaves the wall more or less completely unblemished. No need for any nails or holes in the wall, although removing the post-it's will probably also take a bit of time.
I do intend to actually write-out all of the steps - as detailed in the video - but for now I suggest you simply watch the video above to get a general tutorial on how to create your own post-it art!
