Pop art with paint chips

25 Feb

When I first saw paint chip art my initial thought was “how tacky” but then I found the3rsblog.wordpress.com. She has some really great graphic pictures made with paint chips, so that inspired my latest project, that and the fact that it cost me nothing. I really like thrifty craft, the cost involved in making things often has put me off in the past.

My mini men have a playroom, which I am slowly decorating for them, my goal today was to make some cute and inexpensive art for the wall.

We took a trip to our local Bunnings to get some paint chips in the colour pallette I am using for the room (blue, yellow and white), while there I also picked up a can of white enamel spray paint, then from home I found some old unused frames.

The first thing I did was to spray paint my frames so that they would be dry by the time I had finished my art.

I then cut out the shapes I would be using, I chose to use circles, triangles and squares to create some graphic, pop art style pictures. I used scissors to cut the shapes, but if you had paper punches in a variety of shapes and sizes that would be much easier.

Image

Using craft glue I glued my shapes onto some paper, trying to arrange them in some interesting and eye catching patterns.

When I placed my pictures in the frames I was  bit disappointed that the edge of the frame obscured the edge of the pictures but over all I am happy with the final result. They are bright and cheery, the perfect addition to the mini men’s playroom.

I haven’t hung them up yet, as soon as I do I will post a picture.
