When I saw this guest post on Tatertots & Jello a few months ago, I instantly fell in love. I adored the scalloped look and and I thought it was genius using paint chips – hello, they’re free!!!
I wanted to put this new piece of art in our downstairs bathroom as it has a beach cottage theme and I thought this would perfectly fit into that vibe. This was probably one of the easiest projects – all you do is punch out a bunch of paint chip circles with a scrapbook puncher, and then glue them to a piece of cardstock that’s the same size of your frame opening. I used normal scrapbooking glue, which was good, because it didn’t stick right away and I had some time to move the circles slightly if they needed adjusted.
The paint chips I got were from Lowe’s – they were all a light blue/teal hue.
And here it is finished:
I love it! I’m very happy with my decision in using different colored paint chips to have a gradual color change from light to dark. The art goes awesome with our beach theme in the bathroom. Totally reminds me of waves in a very abstract way :)
