These boards are 2x2 ft squares. I did up four of them, and once I realized that the two cans of chalkboard paint I had were so different, I decided to use them to make calendars. I like that there's no month or days in here; I can use it as a regular calendar, or if I'm doing some kind of challenge (like the yoga binge I'm currently on) I can use it to track progress.
The scene is the view from our living room last night. I really wanted to try the chalk markers so I could get the ice cream project done, and the view was so pretty I just started doodling. These markers are FUN!! They're called Chalk Ink, and you can get them here. They took about a week to arrive from Texas. I know I missed the second friday with the darker paint. Oh well, this one is just for me, so no biggie. I've got another one done, but it's a birthday gift, so it's not going up here until after I drop it off tonight, just in case a certain someone is surfing the net on a friday afternoon instead of working (Yes, I mean you. Back to work!). It's fun. I'll post it tomorrow.
I have so many ideas for these. More to come.
