The title of this post says it all! Chalkboard art has been in trend for the last year or so but I can't get enough. My talented friend Kathy of Kathyphantastic made my adorable shop sign last fall and I get compliments at every show. So, I decided to take my obsession to another level and make goodies for my shop. Well myself, then my shop. :) I sought out some of my favorite quotes, tried to come up with a few myself and after narrowing it down I started with three quotes that center around love, crafting and adventure.
After spending hours seeking out and downloading fun fonts, dingbats and graphics I started in on some basic typography that would fit in with my hoop wall art collection. Several variations later I came up with three styles I liked the best and settled on them for my new spring collection. And here they are...
The inspiration for these designs came from chalk art but I wanted to take it to the next level and make something that was my own variation of the hand written art form. Since I already screen print it made sense to take that route. I started with some darker fabrics in 9" hoops to mimic the look of chalk art in a new, exciting way. So far they are a hit!
Because of the recent band on single use bags in Austin I also decided to take a shot at tote bags as an option for my customers. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.
Here are a couple samples of how you can mix and match my current collection with the new quotes to make fun, personalized sets of wall art for your home.
I hope to add more quotes and screen print designs to my collection every year. I have a few more favorites already set aside for such an occasion. For now I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
