Chalkboard Art

It's a brand New Year everyone, 2013 and did you know 13 was my favorite number?
Well now you do it goes back to my name
13 corresponds to the letter M in the alphabet
and speaking of letters the challenge this week at TSTR is monogram madness
isn't this image fabulous?
Well this brand new week I have been working non stop on invitations for other peoples events.
My table has been full and I have been overwhelmed by work and deadlines.
So I took a little time off to play
and I wanted it to be with chalk art
check the link aren't those gorgeous inspiration photos???
And Betsy Veldman has done her versions too and all over Pinterest you are bound to find tons of inspiration
So here's my own chalboard version
of my Monogram
I am rather fond of the look, maybe it's some childhood memories of my teachers writing in the blackboard and me wanting to be them.
Anywhoo I loved working with my "eraser" and my "chalks" to create the look
I hope you follow the links and get some directions it's a really fun thing to do.
And even without my usual frills I don't feel naked at all, after all there's a couple of blings in there too ;)

 
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope I get to see more of you in this brand New Year
Cheers,
