Often people are intimidated by the chalkboard trend because they don’t believe their free-hand penmanship is up to par. Well, worry not Silhouette lovers…you can legibly chalk this alphabet with the use of Stencil Vinyl and a chalk marker!
The Stencil Vinyl is wonderful. The transfer material it comes with helps transfer even the most detailed designs in one piece. Once your cut design is in place on your chalkboard, it’s simply a matter of “coloring in” the letters one by one with a chalk marker. Peel it off and remove the extra bits with your Hook Tool, and there you have it!
The best part with using chalk markers is that your design will stay in place, but is also replaceable with the wipe of a damp cloth, so your chalked art can change over time!
Can I just take a second to talk about how much I love this Scotch Tape font from the Design Store? There are a lot to choose from, but I have to admit this is one of my favorites. I finished this project off by using Silhouette’s Clean Cut Fusible Fabric Stabilizer and my CAMEO to cut the little bow shape I used to adorn my board.
What will you be chalking up?
