More Pumpkins....Yea!

Yes, I know it is July.  Sweltering heat - high 90's and I'm chalkin pumpkins!  Inside in the air conditioning!  So ready for fall.  Here is an example of what I have been working on:




Fun right?!  So easy, let me walk you through it.
First I cut these out on my scroll saw.   But wait, if you don't have a scroll saw or just don't want to cut it out, Chalk Couture has 1 " thick wood cut-outs for two of these pumpkins and transfers that match them!  Woo Hoo! 🌴💃🏻


Second I painted and waxed the wood cut outs!  Some with Neon acrylic paint!
What is next you ask? Chalking of course!

Getting all done and ready for Halloween!
And

Thanksgiving and Fall!

Pumpkins In July

I have two different designs to show you today on one pumpkin That I cut out on my scroll saw!




All ready for Halloween!  Here are the steps I took:


After I cut this out on my scroll saw, I painted with chalk paint.  Then I used our transfer 'Houndstooth' with Shimmer Gold chalk paste.

Then I sanded to distress the design.
This is the transfer that I used 'Houndstooth'   Then I just decorated it with our Font  transfer for the 'BOO!' and ghosts.  So fun

Now I wanted something more for fall and thanksgiving so:

I did this by going over the orange painted pumpkin with a white wash to give it dimension.  Then..........

I used this awesome transfer 'Modern Floral' and chalked it with Papaya chalk paste.

So which one do you like?

And if you don't have a scroll saw to cut this out, check out Chalk Couture, it has some cut-outs of pumpkins and Trees.  They are 1" thick wood.  Keep watching......

Home & Family

Simple Bright White chalk paste on chalkboard.  All the fancy techniques and colors, I sometime forget how striking all white is on a chalkboard.  This one is on my Verity framed chalkboard that is porcelain-coated magnetic couture board. Love it!

This transfer also has FAMILY with its definition.

Home & Family, that's what it is all about!  

My video, watch how  quick and easy!

Etching On Glass

Yep etching on glass & nope, it won't hurt the transfer!  You may want to wear gloves, as it can be hard on your skin.  If it does land on your skin, as it did mine (go figure) just wash it off right away.

This is what I did:



Pretty cool right?!  And a few more.....






All of these I used my transfer 'Beach Day' from Chalk Couture. Best thing about these is that it will not wash off.  It is permanent and top rack of your dishwasher safe.
Here is a picture of the transfer:



12 different designs!  I have also used these on Koozies, which you can see on my earlier posts.

The one thing I neglected to mention on my video is to be sure and fuzz your transfer before putting it on the glass.  Glass is a non porous surface & this transfer will really stick if you don't fuzz (sticky side of transfer on t-shirt or towel to take some of the stickiness off).  :-)

Now for my how to video:





So what do you all think?  Do you want to try it?  If you do or you just want to browse, s…
