As I am going through my photos to find the pictures of my chalkboards, I realize that I REALLY love chalkboard art! It’s a great way to create art to go with each and every season. I’m realizing, I do this almost monthly. I think we should start a monthly chalking club…..who’s with me??? New art to go with each season….Oh Yeah!! Let’s go down memory lane from this last little while of chalkboard art…..shall we?…
Even events that I decorated for this last year had chalkboard art. I love this lovely vintage silver/gold leafed frame that I found at an Iowa Flea market and have used it a few times this year. It has been at back-to-school ladies socials, baby showers and prominently displayed at Christmas! I might love this framed chalkboard, as you will tell over the seasons, I used it a lot!
The “ice cold milk” chalkboard was changed at Halloween to go with the mad scientist theme. This crazy haired scientist was the perfect addition to the mad scientist’s lair.
I even used a tree limb, cut in chunks, painted with chalkboard paint for the “count down to Halloween” party favors! Even the kids were part of the chalkboard art love!
This chalkboard was changed up at Halloween to be a funny “seize the day before you become a skeleton” chalkboard art, although the art came out a little serious looking……hmmm what will I do next year?
My real slate chalkboard was decked out in Halloween using some of the same lines I had in my Bicycle Chalkboard.
By using the existing lines, I could easily change the Bicycling chalkboard to Halloween. So smart! I love hand chalking!
Before the Bicycling Chalkboard, it was “Merry Christmas!”
With the white ornate frame displaying an “Oh Holy Night!” chalkboard from the famed Christmas Carol.
This chalkboard I designed off a chalkboard art of “I love salt air in my hair” from burlap and denim. I took the same design set-up and made it fall. Our chalkboards were the same shape so I used her general set-up and created my own with the same style.
This was the chalkboard I did for my friend’s vintage carnival themed baby shower. I chalked a carousel horse from a small image from a metal artist that would put this horse into your metal fence….hmmm interesting? Horses in metal fences isn’t my thing But, what a great image! I stressed about this one because I wanted it to be perfect for her shower!! It turned out amazing!
The carousel horse was featured prominently on the drinks table!
Fall has such lovely phrases and colors! Chalkboard art was added to the season with another chalkboard art in my silver/gold leafed frame. I love the reminder, to Give Thanks!
Chalkboard all chalked but, in need of some fun fall decorating!
There, that is better….some pumpkins, books, and some yummy fall colors make the chalkboard art delicious!
This Christmas my family was heading home for Christmas and this chalk art just resonated with me. The image was a free download from nestofposies.com. I added the extra greenery and flower at the bottom because my chalkboard was longer than the image and it was needing a little something.
The last chalkboard of the year was the one above my fireplace. The silver/gold leaf frame was used again yet changed to mimic the theme of my Christmas season….Christmas Carols! The chalkboard art above my mantle had to be a Christmas song and Holly Mathis created this “Oh come all ye faithful” , so I used her basic image and then personalized it. Love great design!
So who’s with me…..should we make this a monthly club? I’m in…..I change mine almost monthly anyways. Who wants to join? I am already finding amazing images for Valentine’s……
