pinterest is my newest addiction…I’m a sucker for lists…I’ve got several corkboards overflowing with inspiration/ideas in the flesh in my studio…
when I got turned on to pinterest, I thought, finally a way to organize all the awesome ideas I come across in the blogosphere…no more scrolling through endless links in my firefox bookmarks trying to hunt down “that thing I saw somewhere, at some point?”
one such idea I saw this past week was this fantastic paint chip piece.
after pinching a handful of paint chip cards from the hardware store, I chopped them down into small squares using a paper cutter.
I gridded off large sheets of black posterboard for both the kiddos (I used yarn taped to the back).
voila…grabbed a couple empty frames that kicked around the studio and threw them on the wall.
I think they turned out fabulous and the kids were thrilled with the results.
and they look great on that empty wall I had beside the door!
and we’ve got tons of cut paint chips left for random art making fun!
