More Playtime with Chalkboard Paint!


 Hi there Faber-Castell Peeps!!  I hope you are enjoying a glorious spring!! I know that here in Atlanta we are in full swing of trees, flowers and everything blooming!


Last month, I was fortunate enough to get to go to Donna Downey's studio for a weekend class with the amazing Junelle Jacobsen.  She is an amazing and inspirational artist and teacher.  I was so inspired by her, I wanted to make a spring journal of flowers and trees. And then I realized  I am  newly obsessed with chalkboard paint and decided to combine the two - my spring journal and chalkboard paint.  I took out my PITT® Pastel Pencils and drew this lovely blue flower on the Faber-Castell mixed media journal boards.  Loved it!! (And I made a video for you to watch and try to make the chalkboard art on your own.)  

After I made the video, I took out a plain canvas and covered it in gesso and chalkboard paint and used the same pencils on it as well!! Loved it too!! SO get out your chalkboard paint and your PITT® Pastel Pencils and PLAY!!  You will be so happy you did!!












And here is my video! Be kind, this is only my second video ever -- and yikes, it sure is strange to hear my own voice when I play it back!!  Thank you so much for stopping by - Karen

Amazing and so pretty. looking forward to seeing your entire book.

GREAT tutorial too - you have no reason to be nervous, I think you're going an awesome job!!! I hate hearing my own voice too ... maybe that's why I don't add many commentaries when taking short videos with my camera :)

    Thanks, Lisa. Things will get easier as I get familiar with the website.

  • Ruby C on Be Strong Tag Using Texture Gems - With Lisa

    I keep looking at your tag because there is so much too see. Wonderful and creative use of products, beautiful shimmer and fun texture. That is a pretty interesting stamp too. I don't have any glitter gems yet but they do look like they would be fun to experiment with.

    Dear Jen, Our son is an astrophysicist. I will absolutely love making something like this for him. I am not nearly as talented as you are, so there will be a few (many) changes, but I know it will make him smile. Thank you. Dee

    If only I had the confidence to put what I create online on a regular basis! Good luck to those who apply! :)

    Lisa, your tag is awesome! I love, love, love the beautiful colors and textures you chose, as well as the way you put them together. I opened an email today from Faber-Castell about the Ustream Class on Wed., May 27, 2015. I watched the DIY All Occasion Party Banner and made a comment to be entered in the giveaway. The demonstrator (I couldn't find her name anywhere) said that if we comment on the blog we have a chance at winning the grand prize. I couldn't find a link to your blog anywhere on the Ustream page. I went to Faber-Castell website and couldn't find anywhere to write a comment. I went through the Ustream video several times to find out how to get to the page where I was to leave a comment. FINALLY, I discovered that Faber-Castell has a blog. I've looked throughout this blog and couldn't find a place to leave a comment about joining you for the Ustream class on May 27th. When I browsed through the site, the sections are not dated so I had to keep searching. At last I settled on writing to you here on your texture tag demo. Where should I leave a comment to register for the grand prize? Thank you!
