Altered Chalkboard

Hi Bloggers,
I'm back again today to show a little project I've finally got around to doing, in December I went over to Melbourne to spend Christmas with the family and when I go I always have to do some shopping it's a must lol
I found a chalkboard in a shop called Typo and my first thoughts were the things I could do with this.

First I lightly sanded it back and then painted it with gesso, then I used some purple mixed media ink, then I used 2 stencils with my most favourite product texture paste, once that was dry I then went over it with iridescent medium using my finger, it gives a real shine pearl finish, I then used some diamond stickles once again rubbing it in with my finger.

Once that was all done it was time to decorate, my gorgeous embellishments came from Tracy over at I used a little bottle for my chalk holder and the duster I painted with mixed media ink stamped it with a butterfly then used some embossing powder over it.

Hope you like it :)
