I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

This project came directly from my husband's pants. Or at least his pants pockets. There is a bin next to our washer that is full of whatever I pull from his pockets after work, like screws, magnets, key fob stickers, contact thingies, circuit do-dads...well I don't know what any of that's for, but it looked like a fun project. There are 100 screws (who knew 100 screws together took up so little space?) attached to a board and then gessoed. I went a little Georges Seurat and attempted a pointillism selfie, and a colour explosion of sorts. And then there's the funny PANIC sticker on my noggin.

I love this! Looks like it belongs in an art gallery.  I'd hang it in my home.

That is the best use I've seen for screws ever! I love the originality and creativity you came up with in making this. It also makes me feel a little less bad for giving up on my own "100" project because I know this is tons better! Great job  Cheesy

Awesome! I always suspected you might have a screw (or two) loose. Cheesy

It's 3" x 4.5" at the widest parts. In my head 100 screws cover a larger area.

Yes, only a screw or two loose, racky. We'll go with that.

Thanks everyone!

Lovely! And, yes, I'm surprised by how little space 100 screws takes up, too!  I'd have thought it would have been a lot bigger, but it works perfectly, anyway. Cheesy
