December’s Hot Cocoa Chalkboard

It all begins with an idea that catches my eye. This one was found via Pinterest, and is a print by Lily&Val. Hot cocoa screams cozy and comfy and Christmas to me, and so I chose to use this for my next chalkboard design (see how i actually made my chalkboard, and my first design HERE).

After I screen-shot-ed(haha oh my word i know that’s horrible…how do i say that anyways?!)  the Pinterest pin, I sketched it out on a random piece of mail i had lying around (a hospital bill, lovely).

Then I taped up my sketch next to the board so I had it at eye level.

I sectioned off the board (you can BARELY see the pencil marks here), and then I used a pencil to draw the design on.

Then comes the chalk pen!

LA LA LOVE how this one turned out!! My husband even complimented me on it…and that’s big for him (hah!)!

See how I made my kitchen chalkboard HERE!

this is my creative outlet. i'm a lover of everything from my little family and going on trips with my hubby, to running, piano playing, and diy crafts. but mostly, i have a growing obsession for graphic and web design.
