Love is in the air! So what a great time to pull out some chalk and write a sweet message for that special someone. Hand lettering has become the new thing! So, today on Life on Summerhill I will share 3 of my favorite Valentine’s Day chalkboard messages and photo of our finished product.
My favorite part about Valentine’s day is all the corny saying on cards. They are so cute, fun and sweet. I also love this holiday because people focus more on others than themselves. It is good medicine for the soul when your spending time coming up with ideas to tell everyone how you love them.
So coming up with ideas for your chalk board can be easy. You can go to Pinterst and search for chalkboard ideas or you can look through old vintage cards. Here are few ideas I came up with.
- All steamed up to be your Valentine (use a tea pot steaming in the art)
- Believe me Valentine, Your my honey (use a honey pot in the art)
- A Valentine for someone sweet (use candy and lollipops in the art)
- A little bird told me you’d be my Valentine (use some birds in the art)
Another way to come up with a good idea is to search for chalk board designs. Here are a few I found on Pinterest also.
So once you have captured your concepts and pulled them together for your design. I would recommend sketching it on a piece of paper first. It easier to think it out on papaer while relaxing. After that the rest is history. I love working with chalk because it is so forgiving. One little or big mistake and you can magically erase it and try again. It’s a win win situation.
Now for our chalkboard design made by my daughter Hannah and photobombed by my other daughter Savanna and Stinker the cat.
