paint chip art

I  haven't been around blogland much lately and i'm so dreadfully behind on my blogroll. I don't feel that I've had much to blog about either, especially since I've been focusing all my energy on redecorating my bedroom. and of course any good project of mine comes with a healthy dose of craft therapy. I'm trying to keep myself busy which has resulted in multiple trips to the craft and hardware stores. on one such home depot trip I grabbed a bunch of paint chips and came home to create these little masterpieces:


I'm using several different bright colors throughout the bedroom, and i had these 3 matching frames so i thought this worked out perfectly.

I like how simple they are. and not too hard to make, either. lots and lots of paper cutting, but that has it's own de-stressing properties. win win.



I think this is the best project I've done in a while, but of course I'm biased. I'm trying to take photos of some of the other projects I've got going, and hopefully I'll get my lazy self around to post them soon!

This is by far the most popular project I've ever posted! But since you're here, these are some other projects you might be interested in:

  4. Angie, this is awesome. I know what you mean, feeling like you don't have much to blog. There are some weeks I don't know how I do it, especially since nothing interesting every happens in my life. It's just school, school, and more school. Hope you have a great week, my dear!

  14. Do you remember where you got those frames? I've been searching high and low for frames with such a thin outside, but can't seem to find them. Thanks!
