Easter ✞

Getting ready for Easter❣️ I used transfers 'Celtic Cross'. Walk by Faith & 'Cottontail Farm' The colors I used are Bark, Greige, Bright White, Meadow, Peony & Daffodil. Technique:  Water Color & Layers
This is a great way to occupy your time inside.  Makes everything cheerful and productive ๐Ÿ˜Š
With Layering, make sure your first layer is dry before you add your second layer.  And fuzz, fuzz, fuzz with a towel or shirt just so you can remove some of the sticky to not pull up the chalk on the first layer.
Watercolor - just choose what colors you want, take a small scoop and put on a tray.  Add some water and mix.  Apply light watered down layers with a brush.  When dry you can add another layer to the parts you want to make darker.  You do not have to color in every space ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Oh So Cute Wooden Houses❣️๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿš๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ”ธ๐Ÿก

I love these❗️What do you think⁉️ My husband cut these out + the roofs and then stained them.  Next I painted and distressed the edges and corners by sanding and rubbing the paint off.  You can also distress by putting vaseline where you want to distress it.  Paint won't stick to it.  So just rub it off and voila - distressed๐Ÿ˜Š  Then we waxed it.  These houses are 5 x 7 and 1 " thick.  If you don't have someone to cut these out for you, Chalk Couture sells these cut-outs ๐Ÿ˜‰  Just check links below to my website ๐Ÿ˜Š Finally I had the fun part - I chalked it‼️

Floral Frame - Two Surfaces, One Transfer

Love, love, love❣️  I know I keep saying this, but I do..... OK, now to the details:  I used one transfer, Chalk Couture 'Floral Frame' for both signs.  The one on the right I used white chalk paste and then I used seafoam (the new color would be sage) for the A size transfer 'Better late than Ugly' ๐Ÿ˜‚  This is on a chalkboard surface.  The one on the left that is on a white board is chalked in 'Black Velvet'.  Once dried I used the watercolor method.  Watch my quick video๐Ÿ“ฝ for details.  ๐Ÿค”  One is portrait and one is landscape.  Which one is your fave⁉️


Here is my quick video๐Ÿ˜‰

Southwestern Motif Pillow

Ok, so today is all about ink❣️Motif transfer on my pillow:




I used Bright White Ink on my charcoal pillow case.  After it was all done I used my heat press to set it.  You could also use an iron with parchment paper on no steam cotton setting for 4 minutes front and back.  When you are all done, in the washer it can go.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here is my quick how to video:




Do you love it⁉️  I sure do.

Vintage Truck ๐Ÿšš On My Farmhouse Wreath

Do you love it⁉️ I sure do‼️  I'm not the best making wreaths, but I gave it my best try.  This is what I did.... I have a hot glue gun and put some glue on the stems before I put the lambs ear leaves inside the wreath. I cut out the 'Vintage Truck' on my scroll saw and then used my Chalk Couture silkscreen transfer to chalk on my truck. ❤️ it Eazy Peazy❣️

Valentine Hearts For All Year Long๐Ÿ’•

I found a way to use my Valentine hearts all year long❣️  I used two techniques for this; Watercolor ๐Ÿ–Œ๐ŸŽจ and glitter✨.  I have a video below to show you how.  For the glitter technique, basically, 1.you put the transfer on, 2. You squeegee on the chalk paste, 3. Remove the transfer, 4. Sprinkle on the glitter while the paste is still wet, 5.  Shake of the excess (It will only stick to the wet areas.  Voila❣️ 

Watch ๐Ÿ‘€ my how to video :




We have a new catalog coming February 3rd❣️  Keep watching ๐Ÿ‘€ for it.

๐Ÿ’•Valentine's Day๐Ÿ’•

Valentine's Day is coming up.....❤️❤️❤️



This is our monthly subscription transfer for January.  ❤️ It!  I'm thinking of etching the little hearts ( xoxo, Be Mine, Luv Me and Kiss Me) on a glass candy dish.  That would be so easy.  I have a few nice Chalk Couture boards that I keep changing the designs on.  Make changing my decor fun, easy and affordable!  I also like how the all white heart pops on the chalkboard.  My daughter said it looks like a doily!  ❣️

Here is my how to video:



And here is another fun Valentine project:
