Ok….I Cheated…I Admit it!
Summer is almost over and now my favorite season is about to appear! I have a sister in Vermont and the leaves are already changing if you can believe it. Anyway, I am slowly re-decorating my mantles, tables, walls, etc… But here is one thing I have recently completed. As you may know, I love chalkboard art and typography. But, I am no where near being able to free hand writing or drawing. So, as I was perusing through one of my many home magazines, I saw this…….
It was in Midwest Living magazine. (Mind you I live in Boston, but hey, home décor is home décor no matter where you live.)
So, usually when I change my chalkboard I get the print blown up and then trace the print. But, when I had this print blown up it came out fabulous. So for the heck of it, I placed the print on the board and looked great.
The print came out black and white so I added the color over the paper with chalk. Voila!
I guess some will say thats the “Lazy mans” or “Womans” way to chalkboard masterpieces but this was just too easy.
If I didn’t fess up, I bet you wouldn’t even be able to tell unless you up real close.
I blew it up to 24X32 for $3 at Staples.Bargain!!
So there you have it….I have confessed! (HeeeHeee)
Thanks for stopping by!
