DIY Heart Art

April 23, 2012

I recently cruised thru the paint chips at Home Depot only to be inspired by the gradient colors all lined up nicely. I picked up several sample cards and with an idea.  I purchase a 12x12 wrapped canvas at the art store and painted it white with a slight undertone of pink.  You cannot really tell there is any pink in the background at all but I didn't want stark white.
I punched out hearts in several shades of pink and lined them up in rows.  I originally thought of just rows of gradient colors but liked the idea of working with hearts. 

I decided after punching several colors out I should write down the names I chose in the off chance I would need to either know this or duplicate the process for someone!  This would be cute in a nursery.  I think I may be making a blue one for someone soon!!

There were so many shades of pink it was difficult to choose.  

I played around with my colors to get them to line up the way I wanted and did a few sample layouts. Once I was pleased with the ombre' effect I placed one of these doo dads on the back of each heart to give it dimension.  

Love it!

Right now I have mine sitting in an easel on the corner of my desk!  SO cute!  Have you made anything with paint chips?
