Paint Chip Canvas TUTORIAL

Hey Jaderbugs!!! I can’t believe I forgot to click “publish” yesterday after I wrote this!

I wanted to make you something that is FUN and EXCITING for Valentine’s day. I am always drawn into paint samples at any store I go into. I can think of a MILLION things to do with them and I never seem to have enough time! Sometimes I find paint samples that I absolutely can’t choose from, because I love the entire thing. That is why I came up with this fun craft! Why not make your own LIFE SIZE paint samples. You know, the kind where you can “pick” your own colors and “pick” your own names! I had so much fun making this and it would be a great gift to anyone! It is a great and cheap way to add lot’s of decor to a space and you can have tons of them for different holidays!

Some of the things I used to make this craft are:

1.  Martha Stewart Crafts™ Basic Brush Set – 5pc

2.  Martha Stewart Crafts™ Paint

3.  Artist’s Loft™ 2 Pack Value Canvas   

The colors I used for this project are : Pink Carnation, Raspberry Ice, Fruit Punch, Turquoise, Surf and Sea Lavender. They are all from the Martha Stewart line.

I hope you enjoyed the quick show I made you! If you want to see the tutorials on two of the crafts in the picture above here are the links!!! Enjoy!!!

1. Wine Cork Board

2.  Champagne-Bottle Wrap

Stay tuned I will be posting a tutorial on how to make a “head” to put on your wall. You will have to come back to see what kind of HEAD I am talking about!!!!

Sending you lots of paint chip colored canvases,

Make a Paint Sample Lamp Shade

Hey my little Jaderbugs!!! I totally have been MIA lately and you can now slowly walk out of the closet and stop crying… why? Because I’m back you little suckers. I tell ya, life seems to get crazy hectic all at the same time. RIGHT!!!! The other day I was “mopping” (yes I am OCD) and I noticed a lamp that looked {{boring}}. I mean don’t get me wrong, it was super cute and prolly one of my favorite lamps at one time, but that “time” is long gone.  While mopping I was thinking of something I could do to dress it up but at the same time keep it cute and sassy. By the time I finished mopping I STILLLLLLLL didn’t think of what I could possibly do UNTIL I opened a drawer. I tell ya, I have never had a drawer sing to me like this one did! As I slowly opened it I saw a HUGE stack of paint samples and the universe answered me.  I hope you enjoy this craft and remember, it’s not stealing if you get 1000 paint samples 🙂 I promise because I had like 2000.  Also, remember that you can do a lampshade in one particular color but in different shades of it and I bet that would be cute as a button!!

Seriously. How cute is this.  I know you can’t see it but when the light is ON it lights up in the coolest way. It’s almost like a “cheap” tiffany lamp{{{heheheheh}}}
Until next time
peace. love. jaderbomb
