8 ways to get creative with paint chips Paint chip crafts have been celebrated in the #getcreativewith challenge on Instagram this week.
The crafty ladies from Little Button Diaries and I were stoked to have Rossa from @curiouslittlepeople on board as Guest Judge for the week.

Monsters were made over at @thestrongcollection HQ.
Paint chips were used by @cara.raisingkinley to create a record collage project.

This week, we have the wonderful Joanna from The Blue Barn as guest judge. And the theme is most eggcellent. We’re asking people to #getcreativewith egg boxes.
