Here’s the big pile of paint chips I started with.
I used my scrapbook paper cutter to cut the strips into 1.5 inch sections, and then cut the strips apart so I was left with a bunch of squares.
I played with arranging the squares but I didn’t like how that looked, so I cut the squares in half diagonally into triangles.
I played with different ways of arranging them until I came up with this.
I just used a glue stick to adhere the paint chips to a piece of white scrapbook paper. I drew a line down the middle of the paper to start as a guide for the dark purple triangles, and then I just kept building outward until I got to this.
I popped it into an Ikea ribba frame that I wasn’t using. I really like how it looks framed and matted.
I also really like the mosaic-esque quality too. I think if I were to do this again I would use just one color, like a million different shades of blue, but I like how the purple and green looks too. Pretty nice for a completely free art project!
