In reality, it's really not that much. It just seemed that way to me at the time... but I digress.
I was especially in love with this particular project because of the incorporation of text into the design. This is an element I have not yet gotten to with my own piece as I simply cannot decide for the life of me what I want to say. I'm also considering re-doing it because it came out a bit crooked and I'm second-guessing my decision to use glue stick to adhere the paint chips to the paper insert (because, you know, I am way too cheap to go out and buy double-sided tape).
Please ignore Sidney. She decided she wanted to reclaim her windowsill perch the moment I put the poster frame up there and I thought she looked pretty darn cute, so I let her stay for the photo shoot.
I'll direct you here once more for detailed instructions on how to assemble this project. I'm thinking this is one I'm going to redo with a smaller frame (and double-sided tape). The 18"x24" was pretty daunting and took me two full afternoons to finish. By the time it was done I didn't want to look at paint chips anymore.
But for now, I like having this hung above my bed. It adds a kind of cute and quirky splash of color to the room.
