Chalkboard Vinyl Decor by Lorena

Lorena Canto is in the house today with a fabulous home decor project for her craft room.  Take it away Lorena!

"Hi everyone! Lorena here with a fun and very easy idea to spice up your crafty space. After all, we spend a lot of time in there making pretty things to give to others, right? So lets surround ourselves with beautiful things too! I made a chalkboard inspired frame with a custom phrase, using SRM's Chalkboard Vinyl."

"This inexpensive frame is from Ikea and it's perfect to customize. I started adhering a piece of floral patterned paper to a piece of cardstock. Then, I trimmed a rectangle from the Chalkboard Vinyl. You get a huge 12 x 24 inches piece, so I still have plenty of it for future projects. Win win :)

And now comes the fun part! I made a cardstock template with my electronic die cutting machine using a free font and the phrase I wanted on my frame. After die cutting it, I placed it on the chalkboard vinyl, secured it with tape and filled in the phrase with a chalk marker."

"Ta•da! Here's a detail shot. I adhered it to the frame with some washi tape."

"As you can see, the lettering is not perfect, but isn't that the beauty of handmade? However, if you end up with a big oops on your art piece, the chalkboard marker wipes easily from this chalkboard vinyl even after drying, so you can fix it using a baby wipe or a damp cloth and nobody will notice."

WOW!  Love this project Lorena! Great inspiration. 
Hope you all have a fantastic day and thanks so much for visiting the SRM blog!
