"Paint is all you need ...Period! "
that is how I named my paint swatch book
for my DecoArt Americana acrylic paints...
Like many of us, I enjoy organizing all my craft items/paint supplies as much as I like to make projects...
Since my collection of Americana acrylic DecoArt paint bottles is increasing, I decided to make a paint swatch book to itemized all the colors that I have for a quick reference when I need a certain color...
I started by painting the covers (in chipboard) in black acrylic paint
then I sketch my design, trace it in tracing paper and transfer the design in my surface
painted all the flowers, words etc with DecoArt Americana Acrylics...
I made myself a chart in the computer with some circles and lines
cut papers to same size as chipboard
punched the edges with a scallop punch
punch some circles in all the colors for the tabs
when done here it is how the front looks:
"PAINT is all you need...
Added ribbon, flowers and loose binder rings
on the back says:
the tabs (punched circles)
details of my design all painted with my acrylic paints...
on the inside
the section for the "Blues"
The "Greens" section
Each divider page is embossed and embellished with some dies
all four panels painted
front and back
with the "title"
front: with a cute bird house
and back: with a swing for the birdie!
I painted my swatch book in these tones to match my wooden easel...do you remember?
although, this timeI used different flowers...

hope you enjoyed this post
and inspired you to make some organization
with your paints...

love to hear from you!
