paint card inspiration

One day on our recent trip away, my husband had to buy some supplies at the local hardware store, so we all went along for a look.  (shops are a rarity where we live)

Now keeping 4 small children amused in a store like that can be tricky when it takes them approximately 2 minutes and  28.6 seconds to make a full scan of the store and then report back ... "this is boring mum" ...  Uh Oh...

Suddenly, I spotted my saviour!  The unassuming paint card stand kept us all amused as I asked what all our favourite colours were.  As a result, I've ended up with quite a selection of gorgeous, hideous and eye bulging colours.

After I put some of the best ones together, I thought a clever idea might be to make a collage/drawing using all the colours like I see sometimes on Pinterest (see below)...

Isn't it great how a boring trip to the hardware store can bring artistic inspiration???  who would have thought...
