Chalkboard Art Ensemble

Hi! Kimberly here and I am excited to share my CHA artwork with you today! The best part of creating these projects is knowing that all the adhesives I need to make everything come together were on my desktop! Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® truly has the best adhesives!

The start of this ensemble was the chalkboard. My grandpa used to always sing this song, so when I saw the digital cut file on the Silhouette online store, I knew it was perfect!

To learn more about creating the chalkboard look see this tutorial: Creating Handwritten Chalkboards with Repositional Adhesive.

The apple bushel baskets were also digitally cut. I love creating 3D paper items and my Crafty Power Tape holds them together, well.

The Crafty Power Tape also holds lace and Fun Flock! I applied the Crafty Power Tape to the top of the bushel basket, removed the backing, and sprinkled generously with Fun Flock. I burnished it in and tapped off the excess. A fun, fall-ish addition!

These store bought apples needed a handmade touch, so I punched hearts from patterned paper, creased them in half, and adhered them with Dodz™ Small.

Here is a look at the card in the ensemble. This time I used a metal die template to cut out the tree. I cut it twice, once from brown card stock and once from patterned paper.

Piecing together intricate die cuts can be painful. E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable has been my solution. After having issues trying other types of adhesive, I thought about the dots and realized how easy they are to remove, if they somehow land where they don’t belong. And the best part is, that really doesn’t happen often. Its the perfect solution! Run the E-Z Dots® on your project and be happy!

The last little touch on the chalkboard was this cute set of burlap pennants. While I made them with die templates, I cannot wait to try out the new Designer Shapes that have pennants!! Stay tuned for those!

thanks for stopping by!
