This Ombre Technique Never Gets Old

Want to add a unique look to your chalk projects?! If so, you’ve got to give this ombre technique a try. It’s super simple to do and really adds a lot. Check out this cake that I used the ombre technique on in the video below. It’s from the You’re the Sweetest Chalk Transfer from Chalk Couture.

All you need is your Chalk Transfer, surface, at least 2 chalkology paste colors and your finger.

Isn’t that cool?! This project was super fun. I love how you can chalk on the chalkboard backing of this Shadow Box, as well as the glass on the top.

Chalk what?! Totally Mind Blown!

I recently discovered a new product that I’m absolutely obsessed with. If you’ve been following my other blog: My Passion For Scrapbooking, you already know I dabble with a variety of crafts. It’s far from just scrapbooking. I even love to decorate (or attempt) chalk boards for my kids school pictures or different occasions. The problem is they don’t look so great. They are even laughable, like this one….

But guess what?! They never have to look like that again because of this new product that I am LOVING. Check this out…. You pick a chalk transfer (which is like a stencil), pick the colors of chalk paste you’d like and a squeegee or a credit card/finger to apply and you’re set to create some amazing things. You literally peel and stick down your Chalk Transfer on a chalkboard (or window, wood surface, canvas, etc.) and then you take your Chalkology Paste (in 1 or multiple colors) and apply with your Squeegee over the Transfer, then remove the Transfer and VIOLA!!! Oh eM Gee, right?! I’m telling you, this stuff rocks!!!

Here is just a small glimpse of some projects…
