Well I guess over 2 months have passed since I last blogged.. oops! It has been a great summer so far- despite the slow start of warm weather and my ER visit that landed on my first day of full-time work! Here's a little of what I've been up to.

I made a piece of art after being inspired by this blogger: Remodelaholic. Check out her blog- lots of inspiration to be found! This is the post I read that inspired the following artwork:

The first step I took was to spray paint a canvas with a glossy black.

Then, I took my paint chips that were cut into 2" squares and begin gluing them on with Modge Podge. I had previously laid out all the squares to determine a good layout. Here is what it looked like after all the pieces were glued on.

As you can see, some of the corners were pulling up, so I took my glue gun to get those edges down. I then went over the entire thing with a couple more layers of Modge Podge.

Then with my roommates' permission, it got hung above our sink in the kitchen!
I love the color it brings to our place!
