Chalkboard Technique

This week at The Friday Mashup #101, the challenge is  to use the Chalkboard Technique. I have never done this before- it’s a technique that I think is a bit challenging. You want messy but not too messy, it’s kind of like you want a messy but clean look at the same time. I used a few products to get this look- SU Craft White ink for the sentiment , SU white chalk for the smudges, and a Prismacolor white pencil for a handwritten A+. Of course, I took this challenge somewhat literal and made a “teacher” card! I am not even sure if schools use chalkboards anymore with whiteboards being the preferred medium? I was excited to use an item in my stash that has NEVER been used- a little Provocraft sizzlet that came with my CuttleBug years ago;) And, I have had this black lined notebook for about 10 years when Gellyz pens were all the rage…LOL. I seriously never part with anything…


Since I framed the little cut-outs of the books/apple, I decided to play at the Less is More #111 FRAME IT Challenge.
