An emty frame, some chalkboard vinyl and Voilá!!
What you will need for this is following:
An empty frame (or just one you don't use)
Chalkboard vinyl (or you can paint a board with Chalkboard paint)
and other embellishments
Will show you below the steps I did to make this project
First you strip the frame bare, and prep it for painting.
I put 2 layers of red acrylic paint,
Then I put on a layer of Crackle Paint from Ranger Products, this one is
called "Old Paper". Wanted to get the aged look.
(imagine a photo here of me putting on the crackle paint)
After the Crackle paint is dry I then used Distress Ink "Walnut stain", to
age it a bit more and so the crackle paint didn't stand out to much.
After that I attached my flower (with glue) and stapled on the ribbon.
Only took me half a day or so....all depends on the drying time and I
just let it sit on my craftstation and everytime i walked by I just added something.
The Chalkboard Vinyl I used I think I bought either at A.C Moore or Michaels, the last
trip I made to U.S last year. But I know there are inexpensive Chalkboard paint out there.
Go and Create! :)
