I have been wanting to try out some chalkboard prints with Heritage Collector Storybook for awhile. I finally got around to making some up today. There are a lot of great fonts that pair well with the chalkboard background. I could have designed the background entirely as a chalkboard effect. I decided I needed a little color though.
This was really simple to create. I looked through some of the kits that I had purchased and located some brushed effects. Believe it on not the flowers I used here were originally in bright colors or black. I changed the color to white. I chose to use two free fonts called EcuyerDax, and DK Claire de lune. I thought the effect was just about right.
This second print is basically the same. I just chose to use one less flower and a blue background instead. You can try just about anything with a chalk print. I love being able to easily move elements and backgrounds around to see what works best. One of the best parts about digital scrap booking!
For the print above I decided to add a little more color and a different font. I used DK Claire de lune for this one. As well as the kit Happier by Deena Rutter. I thought the colors were fun bright colors to go along with the theme of the message here. I love being able to print up my own personalized art for a gift. A print for the kitchen or even a card for a friend. So many possibilities can be used with these prints!
My daughter has been begging me to paint a wall of her bedroom with chalkboard paint. After making these and discovering all of the fun possibilities with this look I may just move onto a chalkboard painting project next!
These last two are not chalkboard style but I just had to add them! I thought the graphics went well with the messages of these prints.
