I love chalkboards. I love how they look. I love that I can change the art on my walls whenever I want. I have several that were given to me by my son.
This week I decided I wanted a chalkboard the size of a wall. I made a trip to Lowes and bought a quart of chalkboard paint and proceeded to paint a wall .
I then I found a large frame to hang on the wall.
And finally yesterday I filled my frame with artwork.
This morning while reading my blogs I found Tim Holtz post with instructions for his November Tag. He used a technique he taught in his Creative Chemistry 102 called CHALKBOARD STAMPING. I had to try it out.
We had just come back from a trip to Lost Maples State Park in Vanderpool, TX. We went in hopes of seeing some fall color. We were not disappointed.
You can see some of my pictures here.
I followed Tim's directions using Texana Designs Jam'n Oak Leaves in all three sizes. Stamping them on Black. I also stamped a few on colored card stock, just to add a little color to my layout.
I used black card stock for my background. I rubbed chalkboard chalk over it to make it look like a well used chalkboard.
