Quite a while back, I found this project idea on Pinterest and pinned it securely to my doodle board. I haven't had the chance to explore the project, mainly because I'd completely forgotten about it until today. I was wandering around my new neighbourhood and stumbled across a decorating shop. It was completely unmanned, so I could have totally run off with more than a few paint chips, but needless to say, I spent a good 10 minutes selecting my favourites and then scarpering off home. After doing the very important PhD things I had to do, I couldn't wait to get cracking - here is my end result:
I really like the effect of this, I especially like the orange paint chip on the right hand side there. Hoorah! :) Yay for rainbow paint chips!
This project is remarkably therapeutic, the only drawback being that you really need the right pen for the job. A sharpie kinda works, but wasn't quite dark enough when it dried so I used my trusty muji pen for the right colour. Only problem is, muji pens don't like writing on the shiney surface of a paint chip so it took a little longer to complete than I'd like. It worked out in the end so that's fine! :)
I'm adding this to the Pinterest board that I now have that documents my completed Pinterest projects. Click here to see! :) And of course, if you want to see more of my doodles, please visit my doodle page. Hoorah! :)
