diy: paint swatch art

This has been on my to do list for quite a while. I have a MILLION paint swatches and they were begging to be used for more than color decisions. So here's what I created.  I've been looking at lots of ideas for this project via Pinterest but here's what I came up with...

Supplies needed:
*Lots of paint swatches in your desired colors
*Paper cut to frame size to adhere swatches to
* Frame
*Rubber Cement
1. I laid all of my swatches out so I could see what I was dealing with.
2. I created a template to cut all of my shapes by.
3. arranging and gluing
4. Added some lettering with some fancy gold paper I found for 25 cents at a yard sale.

And there you have it.

  1. Your swatch art uses such great colors! Love it.

    I made one of my own for valentines day, but just now posted it on my blog. I'm thinking next time I'm going to do a mosaic with swatches.
