Welcome back!! Today I want to share another card that has a chalk element. Yesterday I posted the use of Chalkboard Contact paper, today I'll tell you a little bit about chalkboard paint.
There are quite a few chalkboard paint options on the market, including Acrylic (Martha Stewart I know makes one and FolkArt, which is what I used), Spray Paint, Wall paint and porcelain paint.
This card I took a foam brush and brushed on some acrylic chalkboard paint. This paper set is Crate Paper's DIY Shop (now on clearance at MemoryWorks, making way for NEW products). I than took a white pen and a ruler to create the lines, to give it a sort of notebook feeling. I than layered on some paper and washi tape to complete the look. I drew the arrow with chalk.
Products Used: Crate Paper - DIY Shop (theme set); Studio Calico - Yearbook (Die Cut Polaroids);
FolkArt Acrylic Chalkboard Paint; American Crafts - Thickers (Gold
Chipboard); Chalk; White Pen (could substitute Tim Holtz Distress Marker
in Picket Fence); EK Sucess Notebook Border Punch; Washi Tape (Gold, Silver Stripe); Chalk; Prima Flower.
This next project is using Porcelain paint. To set it you place it in the oven for 30 minutes. I created the frame with my Silhouette machine and vinyl and painted inside to give it that framed look. These mugs make PERFECT gifts!
