I love paint chips! And, I have always wanted to make some kind of framed piece of art using them.
I had collected quite the amount of paint chips from a remodel project 2 years ago and just in general.While reading Tatertots and Jello, I came across a guest post by Just a Girl and I was inspired.
I set out to make my paint chip artwork wanting to do a gradation of color in my favorite color, blue.
I purchased an 8x10 inch frame from The Christmas Tree Shops for $4.99 and using my circle punch, I punched and I punched.I needed about 110 circles for 11 rows of 10 circles for each row.I did my best to organize the shades of blue but seriously, my eyes were going batty looking at all of these different colors.Using Elmer's Glue, I glued the circles directly to the glass.I set a Dutch Oven on top to set the dots in place and let it dry for 20 minutes or so.Here's the finished project.It doesn't appear that I got the color correct from light to dark. Next time, I will just get 10 paint chips of each color and do it that way.
What do you think? Do you craft with Paint Chips?
Ps - The color I selected for my guest room after all of these Paint Chips was Valspar Surf Spray.
