First time playing with.....

Chalkboard paint!!!!  I first learned of this after seeing Carrie at Greenbean's Crafterole do her tutu chalkboards, and I had no clue prior to that there was such a thing as chalkboard paint. So I decided it was time to go to Lowe's and give it a shot.  This was so easy, it's ridiculous!  I cut the penguin at 10" tall from Animal Kingdom out of a cereal box, and painted it with the chalkboard paint.  I then used the face layer to paint the white for the face and orange for the beak.  I have written and erased several times, and I love it!

I chose the penguin because I made this to keep at my boyfriend's, and he loves penguins!  Every time we see one on TV, he gets a big smile on his face, so this was a no brainer.  Sorry about the quality of the picture, but I had to use my cell phone, so it is marginal at best, but you can get the idea.  Anyway, this was a lot of fun, and I highly recommend playing with this paint and technique to everyone!  Thanks for visiting today.
