TUTORIAL~paint chip wall art

I made a slightly different version of the Two Girls Being Crafty's intersecting circle wall art.  see:


So cut out the almond shapes like in their tutorial. I used my fiskars circle puncher. I also used a small canvas I got for $1 from Michael's that I spray painted.
{this is the way I did it....} measure the circles diameter....
go around the edge and mark like this:
then make a graph like so:
then put another line down the middle of each graph thing:
use a glue stick to glue the almonds down like this:

keep going:
when you're done, just erase the lines!
Now put 1-3 layers of Modge podge over the whole thing:
Let it dry and then hang it! Oh... like always, i forgot to mention something :) I used old paint chips that I had left over from the paint chip wreath to make this :) YAY for recycling!








Have a great day! :D {does it bug you how many smiley's I use?  and ...'s I can't help it! oh... {see!} and !'s?}
