I am so excited to share this fun layout with you. It isn't often that I share a layout that tells a bit about me that many people don't know. We live in a small town of about 2,000 people. While we are so lucky to be surrounded by the ocean, lakes and mountains, I do miss living in a city.
Core'dinations challenged us Design Team members to use a chalking technique on a project. I have seen all the projects everyone did and they are fab! So many fantastic and original approaches to the chalkboard trend. Mine was shared on the Core'dinations Blog the other day, so today I am sharing mine with you.
I started this layout by sanding down Nightfall Core'dinations Cardstock. The effect looks like a night sky. So cool! To create my city buildings, I used a stencil by Crafter's Companion with some Quick Quotes Chalking Ink. I simply dabbed the ink right over the stencil. After it sat for a minute, I smeared the chalked image with my finger to make it look a bit smudged.
Journaling in white pen was my last touch for the chalking theme. It really pops on the Nightfall!
