Chalk Art!

I discovered chalk art on Pinterest ages ago and since then I’ve been dying to try it. I always loved coloring with chalk on sidewalks as a kid, I don’t know why but that is more appealing to me than drawing or painting or other forms of art (which I am no good at by the way). I like how chalk feels and looks unique. Today I finally went to Joann Fabrics to get a couple yards of blackboard paper, which can be used to write on with chalk for wall hangings and decor projects. The first one I made tonight is one I will put on my fridge to add a little personality to my kitchen. The quote is one I found on Pinterest, and is a great motivational quote for fitness, healthy living, and life in general.

“You have to tell yourself, no matter how hard it is, no matter how painful it gets, I’m going to make it.”

Here’s the finished product:

 

I can’t wait to make more decor projects with chalk and blackboard paper in the future!! When I have the time and patience, I’ll be using colorful chalk and adding more flourishes and designs. I used to do calligraphy for awhile so I’d like to brush up on some of the beautiful lettering I used to know. Once the artwork is done I’d like to put the blackboard paper on a rustic wood frame or background and hang it as a wall hanging. One thing I love about chalk art is that it can be erased and redone with new quotes and designs whenever I want.

Stay tuned for more projects as I continue giving my apartment a decor makeover! πŸ™‚

  1. I never realized you liked art so much! that’s awesome πŸ™‚
    I never was one for drawing or anything as a kid, I wasn’t good at it and chalk always bothered me in school when used on the chalkboards! lmfao something about the sound, I don’t know.
    I haven’t used chalk in years, but I am glad someone out in the world does πŸ™‚
