I hope you've been enjoying all the holiday pictures
of ~rooms FOR rent~ this past week.
Right now I wanted to give you a closer look of
our chalkboard door.
I free handed this drawing from a chalkboard inspiration I saw
on Pinterest. If you follow me on Pinterest,
than it's no surprise to you how much I LOVE chalkboard art.
I'm still trying to grow in this area,
so I love finding new designs to challenge my artistic hand.
This is the original pin,
and I basically just picked one that I thought I could handle.
I chose the middle one from the bottom row.
However, I loved them all, and even thought about changing them out every couple days,
but a girls only got so much free time on her hands!
Once I chose the one I wanted to duplicate,
I just pulled it up on my computer screen, grabbed my supplies,
and got to work.
There are many different tutorials for doing chalkboard art,
and I will cover those in a different post,
but for now I will just explain what I did to accomplish this.
I started with the top middle scroll art,
and then worked my way down,
placing the large letters in first.
Then I went back in and added the smaller words,
and the extra scrolly (sp) parts on the words like
"tidings" and "of" and the word "and".
Then I added the tree in the bottom left corner,
and then filled in the top corners,
to fill in any empty space.
~All in all pretty simple~
You will notice mine is not an EXACT copy of the original,
but I like how it came out non-the-less.
So now that it's friday,
Are you done decorating yet?
I was thinking today... I know people who don't get their trees
until Christmas eve.
I think it's so cool, and then I think you set everything up for one
night just to take it all down again! HA.
I hope you enjoy your weekend, don't get stuck in too much holiday shopping traffic,
and I have more christmas decor to show you next week!
