So for today, I am sharing a framed chalkboard that I altered. I found this chalkboard a little while back at Michael's. I knew from the moment I saw it, that I wanted to alter it in some way. I searched for the perfect paper and the perfect embellishments. I decided upon the Sweetest Thing Bluebell collection from My Minds Eye. I thought the colors of this collection would go perfectly with the shabbiness and coloring of the frame. And of course Unity stamps were going to be used.
First, I adhered strips of patterned paper to the chalk holder and above the three openings. Then the glass was removed from the frame openings. I adhered cardstock/patterned paper to the three mini frames and replaced them under the chalkboard. Now I had three mini canvases to build on. The one stamp is a quote from Walt Disney; laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, dreams are forever. This stamp is an Itty Bitty. I stamped this on patterned paper, colored in the larger butterfly and adhered it to the frame with foam adhesive. I then accented this piece with a chipboard button.
For the middle opening, I cut out a label from patterned paper and adhered it to a block of floral paper. I adhered the chipboard piece with foam adhesive to the label. For the last opening I stamped the sentiment dream to be from the Dream to be set (Ippity by Unity) on patterned paper. I adhered a strip of blue patterned paper to the bottom. Foam adhesive was added and the entire piece was adhered to patterned paper. A chipboard pennant with a heart was added. Over the first opening I placed a floral chipboard embellishment.
I hope you enjoyed looking at this creation as much as I have enjoyed sharing it with you. Now for the pics:
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day. Until tomorrow, peace and love in crafting
