This Way To....The Lake, The Beach, Adventure or The Mountains!




I'm over the moon with Chalk Couture's Inks  They go on so smooth and easy!  Great with Ceramic, glass and Fabric.  I put it on fabric here on this pillow:





Love, love, love!  So fun and easy.  The part that was the longest was the drying time!  I used my flip flops again.  (probably will be my signature during all these summer pictures & videos)  LOL   I used Chalk Couture's Lumbar Pillow case (12 x 24) & 11 x 23" Ink Mat - this has a sticky side which holds the pillow in place and keeps it smooth.  It also acts as a barrier against bleed through.
The inks I used are:  White, Storm, Black, Teal, Bubblebee & Coral.
If you would like to go shopping just click on the Chalk Couture on the right side of this blog.  It will bring you right to my web site.  :-)

Here is my video - This time just music to give you a break from my voice........





Love to hear what you think......

Live Life In Flip Flops




Let the summer transfer begin............drum roll please......!!


Today we are starting with our transfer 'Live Life In Flip Flops'....and I do!





So stinkin cute!!

This technique is so easy, just dab on your colors and swirl with your finger.  A great rainbow affect/effect*. (Never can remember the rule for this one)  The flip flops look like you could put your feet in them and walk right off the page.  The colors I used are Bubblegum Pink, Lilac, Purple, Aquamarine and Lime Green.  Remember you can use these transfers over and over again with proper care.  Just wash off with water, then a disinfectant wipe let dry sticky side up.  The glossy side of the backing goes to the sticky side once dry.  The paste dries hard and will stay on until you take a damp cloth to wipe off.  Then you are ready to do the next design.  Eazy Peazy!

And my video.......





I welcome all comments.  Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Chalkin!

Sugar Cookie Recipe On My Apron







Ta, da!......

That is a huge transfer and a lot of inking!  It does come in two separate transfers, but it is still too big for me.  Here is my tip:  cut it down into whatever works for you.  Just be careful not to cut into the netting and leave a little sticky boarder to prevent bleed through of the ink.  I also did this while doing a video because I like to show you guys everything I can.  It was a little hard staying in the camera view and still being able to see what I was doing.  But, enough excuses!  Of course you can change this up into any color you want or keep it to just one color - We do have 15 colors to pick from and you can mix some colors to create a new one!


Here is my video.....





One of these days I will have to try this recipe.


Happy Chalking and Inking!

ps:  I have a lot of summer stuff coming up in the next weeks, so keep coming back and check it out.  :-)

Just saying.................

Again a very short video to show everybody who wants to watch my process.

I Love You To The Moon!




I have said those words many times to my kids!  And now to my grandkids!  The game goes:  I Love you to the moon and back; then as we take turns.....I love you to the moon and back times a thousand.  Then times a million. And on and on.....Zillion - wait is there such a thing?  Well we made it one.





How cute would that be in a kids room?!  You could change it up with any color to match their room.  How about a Pink Rocket?  Or, as my daughter says, Chalk it on the mirror so they can wake up to it every morning!

And my short video:





Having lots and lots of fun with this......come on and join me and lets chalk! and ink!
