Chalk Talk

In keeping with the
BACK TO SCHOOL theme,
I've decided to make a post dedicated to chalk! :)
(although, I don't think that most school even use chalkboards these day. I think they are all dry erase? OH well!)

It all starts with a little can of chalkboard paint

that you can pick up at Home Depot

ORCraft At Home gives us the recipe to make our own chalkboard paint!


SUPPLIES NEEDED:

3 tsp. acrylic paint
1 1/2 tsp. medium water based glaze
1/2 tsp. powder tile grout
The possibilities are endless! Here are some of my faves:
