Tuesday Tip–Chalkboard layouts!

Chalkboard is all the rage these days and did you know that Black Magic is perfect for it?  For this layout, Designer Leica Forrest used a few diffferent kind of Black Magic with a blue and pink core. This layout was in our booth at CHA and everyone LOVED it. The texture is just amazing!

Tip 1.) Make it look like it’s really chalk by using the Outlining technique. New to outlining? All you do is take some removable adhesive and put your chipboard letters on your kraft mat and then sand over. You can check out the Technique Video HERE. Leica used this technqiue for the “Family”  title.

Tip 2.) Sand punched pieces and layer them on your layout base it looks like it is chalk. See that scalloped piece above the Family tile?  Leica punched first, sanded and then adhered it. It looks just like a colored piece of chalkboard! She used the same technique for the banner along the bottom of the photo.

Tip 3.)  Use your white gel pen or marker on the Black Magic just as you would with any other cardstock. Highlight the title…add some journaling….doodle…add some Queen & Co. bling…whatever you want! Looks awesome, don’t you think?
