Making Chalkboard Embellishments

Chalkboard backgrounds and embellishments are very trendy in this fall's new scrapbook lines.  I had some Martha Stewart chalkboard paint left over from the 2P's Art class last spring and wanted to try making my own chalkboard embellishments.  These were cut with the Cricut and then dressed up with some stamps, watercolor crayons and colored pencils.  

Two of my favorite are these borders cut with just a regular scallop border punch before painting.  A paint pen and the the Signo White gel pen did the accenting.

You can use punches to cut out designs as well.

The how-to is all in the video:

These were a lot of fun to make and a bit addictive.  I want to use several of them on a layout soon.

Thanks for watching!
