Chalkboard and a few things.

When we recieved our new Spring/Summer Idea books there was some pieces of card board that had the center cut out, in the box, I didn't throw them away, I decided I would do something with them and I came up with this little chalk board, I found some chalkboard paint at Michaels and I had some pieces of study card board hanging around so I painted the study piece with the chalkboard paint, its take 3 coats of paint, while that was drying I covered the other piece with my B & T Olivia paper, (what I have left of this paper is now put away for a bit), I pulled out the Art Philosphy cartridge to cut my letters 2.0", roses 2.25" & 3.0" and the little swirls around the roses 2.0". I used a white pen to put faux stitches on my letters. Once my chalkboard paint was dry I put my pieces together using liquid glass, I used my atg gun to hold till liquid glass was set. I hope you like.
