Organizing and Paint Chip Art

I found some 3/4 inch white circle stickers at the office supply section of a local store and used them to label the tops of my Distress Stains.  First I tried to color the labels and then adhere them to the tops, that did not work out. So then I put the sticker on the lid first and then colored it with the dabber top.  Came out great!

Here is my Tim Holtz Cargo Case. I love this box for storing my distress ink pads and my bottles of distress stain. It has clips on all sides to ensure that it closes securely.

To keep track of how many colors of distress stain I already have, I downloaded this chart from Ranger. I resized it to standard letter size paper and printed it on cardstock. Then I dabbed each color I own in the appropriate box. Now I can make sure there is no double buying of colors.
I made this canvas board using paint chips, a Marvy heart punch borrowed from a coworker and ModPodge. I cut out the heart shapes alternating direction on each strip. In order to make them fit my 8x10 canvas board I had to cut off one color from each strip. 

I laid out the strips so that the colors did not overlap and used ModPodge to glue them down. Afterwards I went back and placed the hearts in the empty holes more or less with random placement. More ModPodge and I left it to dry overnight. This is the shiny ModPodge and the photo does show a little glare. I am happy with how it turned out. 

Happy Weekend!
