Recently, I’ve been playing around with chalk lettering. I love it because you can change out your chalkboard art for the season. It’s a fun seasonal or holiday addition to any house, and when the season changes, you simply erase it and start over. It’s also a great medium for beginners because if you are making your art and there is something that just didn’t turn out right, you can simply erase it! Unlike marker or pen, you don’t have to completely start over from scratch if you have a little mess up!
I recently made some chalkboard art for our home for a Spring decoration. I created three videos of the process to share with you exactly how made the art. These videos take you from start to finish of the creation, including what supplies you’ll want to grab. Watch each of the videos below to learn more about chalk lettering.
In this series of hand lettered chalkboard art videos, I’ll discuss: 1) how to prep your chalkboard for lettering and the supplies you’ll need, 2) how to letter in both a script and serif font, and 3) how to embellish your chalk design with banners and other embellishments.
