What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin from Landsdowne Life created a fish-scale-like piece of art for her living room. Instead of cutting her extra paint chips into triangles as Heather did, Erin used a big paper puncher to punch out hundreds of dime-sized dots. She arranged them in a scalloping pattern on a red wood panel, and glued them down with Mod Podge.

This splashy fish-scale wall art for a living room is a blogger's DIY project; she glued coin-size paint chip dots in varying hues in a scalloping pattern on a red panel.Tell us: How do you cope with rainy days? More:Patterns: Scallops and ScalesIf This Bloom Were a Room
Make your own unique piece of artwork for your home. All you need are a canvas, die-cut paper and decoupage glue. For this DIY, circle cutouts in various colors were arranged over a canvas to make a pixelated and graphic statement piece. A dab of glue on the back of each circle is all you need to adhere the paper to the canvas.
