Oval Wreath & 'C' Monogram On A Pallet Box

Last week I chalked 'Farm Life' on my pallet box.  This week I have turned it around to the other side and chalked the 'Oval Wreath' with My initial 'C' in the middle.  We have these monograms for every letter in the alphabet!  Woo Hoo!!  Here is a picture of what I made:



A Serving Tray!!  Love it!  Thanks to my husband for helping me with the handles and spray painting the Rust-Oleum Chalked protective topcoat in Matte Clear.

This is just getting better and better.  Love working & creating with Chalk Couture.

'Life On The Farm' on the Pallet Box.  




Have I told you "This is my favorite transfer so far"?  That and the new 'Vintage Tractor' and our 'Vintage Truck' (which is not retiring by the way - it is way too popular!)  It is hard to make a mistake on this one, the transfer is designed so well.  You should try it!  So, come and watch my video.  I explain the three helpful tips to layering and also how I came up with my barn red color paste.

My video:




Come back next Wednesday to see what I do with the other side of my pallet board.....




Hmmmmm😉 Hint:  think serving tray....... You'll have to come back to see it.

My Vintage Stack Of Books

OK, I'm lovin this new trend:  Vintage book stacks!
It seems like I see them everywhere, so I decided I needed to try my hand at it.  LOL  
Here is a picture of my vintage books:



I love how this turned out!  As close to perfect that I will ever get.  Don't you just love makin 'vintage'?  It is so forgiving!

I also used the 'hello' from my silkscreen transfer 'Welcome Trio' on my milk jug sitting by my fireplace.





As always here is my how to video:




Ya gota love Vintage!

Trying The Masking Technique with Chalk Paste

Ok, here is a fun technique called 'Masking'.  It works well with many of our large background transfers.  With this one I used our 'Modern Floral' transfer once again.  I used it previously on a decorative pillow (in which I made a video - of course).  I also used a 'Welcome' transfer, Our huge 18" Round, Shimmer Gold & Bright White Paste.


This shimmer Gold Paste actually shimmers with gold glitter.


Here is a picture of my two projects together.  Same transfer but two different surfaces.  One is ink and one is paste.

So are you ready to give this technique a try?  Come on, you know you want to!

Not Adulting Today!

Ink on my T-shirt:
.....I'm not.....  ADULTING TODAY (tomorrow doesn't look good either)
tehehehehe 😂🤣🤪



Love this!  Isn't it cute.  Who wouldn't want that from time to time?  I will be busy making a few of these this afternoon.  🎨 The ink colors I used on this t-shirt are:  Papaya, Couture Teal & Bright White.  The transfer is:  'Not Today'.  Now I can heat set this with either an Easy Press or an Iron.  Use parchment paper with both.  And..... (drum 🥁 roll)  it's permanent!  WooHoo!!💃🏻

Modern Floral Transfer & Ink On My Pillow

Love how you can customize colors and mix transfers to decorate.  Decorate your way!  And the bonus is....it's fun too!



I love how this turned out.  It did take some prepping and some patience.  This is a large transfer and I had to make sure it did not stick on itself.  I used Chalk Couture's Ink Mat which acts as a blotter & it is sticky so you can press the pillow cover smooth over the mat.  Than when I put the sticky silkscreen transfer on and smoothed out any wrinkles or bubbles I had a very successful transfer of ink to pillow - no bleeding under the design!  Yea!!😀😃😉 The supplies I used are:  Ink Mat, Eucalyptus ink, Large handled squeegee & Modern Floral silkscreen transfer.

Here is my how to video:




Love this stuff!
