Love Those Painted Chalk boards

 Today thought I would share some my favorite painted chalkboards, so I start with the little lamb one which I have just finished and is in my Etsy store It's Just Frankly Kute.  This a small chalk board I found in the fabric store in the craft section.  I painted with oil based acrylics and I drew the scene freehand  using no patterns just an idea I had rolling around in my head.  This one celebrates summer.  Each chalk board is also sealed with an acrylic sealer.
   I created this set a while back for fall time and I used the acrylic paints and I always have different ideas on how to make my crows so I don't think I have ever redone the same crows, and they are fun there many ways to think about how a crow looks.
Cats too! they are tons of fun because there are so many different ways to draw a kitty and I try to draw just from my imagination but sometimes I will find a photo of my kitty ruffles and cartoon/draw from a silly photo I have of her.
I love lady bugs because there tons of ways to make lady bugs! and I finished this one just before St Paddy's day its very simple I just love the acrylics they work so nicely and all kinds of things!  I love sharing different ways to paint and chalkboards is one of my personal favorite things to do.  They can make cute home decor for the holidays or just for everyday.

Primitive Easter Bunnies that make great Bowl Fillers

 I created these a few weeks back, they are little bowl fillers for Easter.  I made up my own pattern and designed them using muslin and staining with instant coffee and cinnamon.  I then painted them with my oil based acrylic paints.  The basket is from the dollar store. You can find the little bunnies here to purchase
You can also see more information on them in my etsy store.
