I can honestly say that I am soooo looking forward to this new partnership
after having time to play with these chalk paints.
Can you say easy, fun, forgiving, buttaaah?
These are all the things that came to mind when I worked with this line of paints, glazes and muds.
I actually said to my hubby and kids that anything standing still in this house
was in danger of being painted.
It was that fun and easy.
For my first post this month I thought I would start out with something simple.
I wanted to give myself the okay to just play
and check out this paint and see how it stood up to the
"other" chalk paints out there. I am hooked!
I started with an 8x10 Canvas Art Board.
I then added a bunch of Decoupage with Vintage Text Pages and
scraps of 12 x 12 Papers that I hung onto because I just loved them
and knew I could use them again.
I then added a coat of Dixie Belle Paint in Pure Ocean.
Next, I sanded this down with the sanding sponge.
I then applied my stencil.
Then came stenciling with some of that amazingpalette knife and applied it right over the stencil.
I then added the Grunge glaze.
I really love working with this the most I believe. It brought the whole piece to life.
It just made it all pop!
I will seal this eventually. I did not seal it at this stage because I am just not sure it is done yet.
I think that there just might be more in store for this amazing little 8x10 canvas art board.
Time will tell, maybe a denim border, some vintage jewelry, who knows...
all I know is I cant wait to keep playing with this chalk paint!!!
Please see below for a few more items I used in the project.
Thanks for joining me today...
