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 :)

    Hi. I love Rita's style! I wanted to know if she would share how she did the black area that's over the blue and red on the sample journal page she did? (shown above - the one that says 'remember' on it) It almost looks like it might be with plastic wrap or something. Looks very cool! :D

    Like the look of the chalkboard black peeking through with the black stamping on top. I bet this would be fun to try with the texture cards too. Love your finished canvas. Your young lady's eyes are so expressive. I'm sure I'll see you again on the Design Memory Craft blog.

    Hi Tiare!

    I went to visit your website - and there's nothing there. :(

  • Ruth Gauss on Mini Book Cover

    So beautiful! What wonderful texture you got with the bricks and I love the soft watercolored flowers! And I learned that you can use the waterbrush to take color directly from the Gelatos - that's so good to know! Thanks so much for sharing!
