Daydream and Sunflowers




Daydream and Sunflowers, now that's a great combination!  Below is a picture of my Sunflowers, which did not make it to a video only because there was way too many layers and drying time.  Not hard, just took some time.






Actually, I had a lot of fun with this, it just took awhile.  But then I am a happy & s - l - o - w crafter.  LOL.  I just enjoy it and take my time.  The transfer I used is 'You Are My Sunshine'  This was put on our new Greyson 18 1/2 by 24 1/2.  The flowers have two layers.  I only used the entire second layer flower transfer on two of them.  The rest I used the basic flower transfer, waited until it dried and then chalked the middle only of the layered flower transfer.  I hope that made sense.  Below I have a picture of the transfer, which will help you get the idea. I used several different chalks in yellow and Orange shades.  I used:  Honeydew (for the stem), Brick, Canary, Pumpkin, Lemon and Coral.  I blended many of them with at least two colors (just laid some chalk down and smoothed over with a squeegee)  You Are My Sunshine...love the song, the flowers everything! 

  Here is a picture of the transfer.  The middle flower is the one I used everywhere.  2 of them I used the entire 2nd layer with the outline (Top left flower).  The rest I used the middle only.





And now to my Daydream:




Fast, simple and easy & I love the results.  I have this on my FB header page...go check it out at:  https://www.facebook.com/CraftingWithCherie/ 
I just took a piece of plywood, cut it to size.  I then whitewashed it (white paint mixed with water).  Once dry I distressed it with walnut stain and clear minwax using a lint free rag and dragged across until I had the effect I wanted.  Then I used Cool Pool and Whip Cream Acrylic Paint and spread it across with my roller.  Wiped off the edges because I wanted it to have the look of a frame.  Now onto my Chalk Couture Transfer 'Daydream' which I used the chalk Paste Navy & Black

Thanks for stopping by.....Happy Chalkin!

Bible Journaling - Mark 16 : 6




I have been neglecting this page  :-(  I must do something about that!  I got this idea from Pinterest, but I don't have a name to give credit to.  So if you recognize it please let me know so I can give you credit.





The cross really caught my interest.  I love how it was made.  So this is my version of the one I spotted on Pinterest.  Of course when I Bible Journal I love the art but it also gets me reading the pages of the bible over and over again.  It really is an awesome book!

Welcome Come In And Stay Awhile




I had forgotten how awesome the white is on a black chalkboard!  It really pops!




I love this & it will probably go in my entry way to welcome all who come in!  I refinished the frame with white chalk paint that I got at Walmart with a touch of black here and there.  Then I went to Home Depot to purchase their sheet of chalkboard 2' x 4' and have it cut to my measurements.  Of Course, Chalk Couture to decorate with two transfers, Double Welcome & Lets Stay Home.  The pastes I used are White, Canary, Periwinkle and Coastal

My First Live Video: Be Brilliant




Well I finally got brave enough to attempt a live video on my FB pages: https://www.facebook.com/CraftingWithCherie/?ref=bookmarks
1. It was sideways...oh dear I will have to figure that out so you don't get a kink in your neck.  I did save it and shared it to you tube through my video app and managed to turn it right side up, but not on FB

2.  Couldn't figure out - yet - how to see people's comments (if there are any) but I will figure that out.

So Here is my video - LIVE





Happy Chalkin!

Our New Starter Kit 7/1/18



l thought you might like a visual of our new starter kit.  It is very short just about 25 seconds.  $99 + shipping & tax.  Over a $240.00 value retail.  Love this so much!  Take a look.......





I love to hear what you think.

Love Grows Here and Showcased On Our Wall




So Terry and I did this project Sunday afternoon.  It turned out so awesome, I am over the moon about this!  You know how some projects just click and give you a WOW factor?  Well this one did for me!  I even have room for a second shelf, which I will probably do simply because I took up the entire two shelves with my kids, grandkids and moms and dads.  The third level I could extend the family to siblings....I have two and Terry has two.  So that is definitely in the future. 





Awesome Sauce!  Notice the Chalk Couture on top of all of it with 'Love Grows Here'


I did a quick video for you all to see.




Individual?  Really?  How many times have I said this?  LOL  I meant Independent Designer for Chalk Couture.....Oh well, life goes on.
Thank you Terry for putting this up for me, there is no way I could do this by myself.  We got the shelves at Ikea.  Check out the Chalk Couture design on the top 'Love Grows Here'  This stuff is changing my life and my HOME!  Woohoo!
