Faux Chalkboard with Miss Kate Cuttables

Hi, Jenny from Jen's Crafty Place for today's Miss Kate's project. I know it is February but I love Halloween projects and to me it is never too early to start making Halloween décor. 


I love the look of the chalkboard but I have to admit, I am no good at keeping my writing centered and straight. I decided to try a faux chalkboard and I think it came out awesome! Let me know what you think!


I used Miss Kate Cuttables Halloween Night Word Art. Instead of using my cutter in my Cameo, I inserted a Uni-bal signo white gel pen. So instead of cutting the file, the white gel pen wrote out the file. As you can see above, this is what it looks like. The white pen did not draw it without skips but I wasn't going for a solid look. I wanted it to look like a chalk board sketch so I was happy. I used an 8.5x11 piece of black cardstock. You can also use green for the faux chalkboard look. After I got my sketch I colored it in with chalk pencils. If you don't have the chalk pencils, just use chalk pieces.


When I was finished, I framed it and I was done!
Very easy and I love the results!
Give faux chalkboard a try either with this design or a different one. Please post pics below and share them with all of us!
Until next time, Happy Crafting!!
Jen
