When I learned of this week's chalkboard theme, I knew I had to make some cards. Chalkboards have been a part of my life since elementary school and I'm so glad to see they've been reintroduced into interior design and the crafting worlds.
Instead of using a literal interpretation of chalkboard to incorporate into my cards, I chose to use chalkboard-inspired elements. For my first card, I used a chalkboard frame shape as an element of the design. In my second card, I used a chalkboard themed cardstock sticker as the focal point. And for my last card, I let the black hello pennant represent the chalkboard component. Chalkboards allow you to freely create, so I hope you can make something today using some of these tips.
The Flea Market collection has such pretty colors and gorgeous patterns! It was perfect for this layout about my favorite camera in my tiny vintage camera collection. Flea Market has a variety of fun chalkboard elements to choose from. I used a color palette of green, pink and yellow, which is grounded by the grey background and black chalkboard accents. I also added in some gold elements...I especially love the gold Scrabble style alphas!
Chalkboard is a huge trend in the world of scrapbooking. I love that chalkboard paint can be used in many different ways. I applied the paint onto the Close Knit wood embellishments and used a white gel pen to outline the hearts. I also applied a bit of paint directly onto the white cardstock and added my journaling on top of it, again with a white gel pen. As adding black to a page lets the entire layout appear darker, I used a lot of white space to let the scrapbook page appear softer and less massive.
