We had loads of fun here at PaintSewGlueChew Towers coming up with gruesome names for this Paint Chip Art Poster.

Followers on instagram will know I do a daily challenge.  Last month, one of the prompts was “vibrant”.  The paint chip display at our local DIY shop caught my eye, but as I’m no stranger to a Paint Chip Art Project, I wanted more than just a picture of the display.    Have a look through the archives if you fancy seeing some of these previous projects (enter “Paint Chip” in the search button on the right to find them).

B&Q have now started stocking an American brand of paint  – the range of colours is astonishing.  With a lot of difficulty, I chose my favourite dozen or so colours that would fit with the “vibrant” prompts.  All gorgeous colours, but they have the cheesiest names.  So we have some fun renaming them.

I posted this on instagram, but realised on the tiny phone screen, the names on the paint chips were too tiny to see easily on a phone screen!

1) Midlife Crisis Sports Car; 2) Kermit in a Blender; 3) Flamingo Vomit; 4) Fallen Down the Stairs Blue; 5) Old Lady Eyeshadow; 6) David Dickinsons Winter Tan; 7) Mermaid Tears; 8) Cold Custard; 9) The Green you discover on a Slice of Bread just after you’ve finished the First Slice; 10) Left Over Prawn Sandwich; 11) Bags Under My Eyes Grey; 12) A Glass or Three of Pinot Noir

We loved these so much, I made one in to an art work for my sons bedroom.  Added a few extra colours to make it A 4 shaped, and a couple of modifications, and there we are:

These are the colours we chose.

      Shan – thank you so much for nominating me. I really appreciate your words too. I’ve just checked out your blog, its such a cute idea. My blog posts are scheduled for the next couple of months, so not sure I can participate I’m afraid. I do love quotes though, so I may jump in at the end of the summer if i can find the time. I’ll be sure to tag you if I do. Have a great weekend. Diana xx
