Get chalky! Technique tuesday

Hi all,
 Happy technique tuesday! Today i wanted to share how i did my give thanks on my door sign. First i doodled ( you can also print out a saying off the internet) the saying i wanted on a piece of paper then i tweeked it and retraced it with marker so i could see my changes. 

Next, i took a piece of regular chalk( i used my kids sidewalk chalk) on the reverse side and scribbled it to cover the whole area behind the words. Lastly, i flipped the paper over and placed it onto the chalkboard sign. Then just traced with a pen around my words . I lifted the paper up and then i was left with a faint outline of the sidewalk chalk.  To finish, i took the chalk marker and traced and filled in the letters.

This was such a fun project!
Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
