There’s just something so fun when you’re able to save something with a little help from some paint, stamps and decor transfers. Using mixed media definitely takes your projects in a creative direction and the possibilities are all up to you and your creativeness.

Supplies needed:

When using decor transfers should I remove the backing paper?

When using decor transfers its always good practice to keep the backing paper on your transfer because if you get anything like dust or the transfer adheres to something it will stick and could also affect the transfer adhering properly.

Step 1 – Give the entire chalkboard a clean with  TSP and some warm water. Using an old rag dry off and then grab your brush and give the entire chalkboard 2 coats of Raw Silk.

Step 2 –  Using a led pencil draw a crock in the lower panel of the chalkboard. Using some watered down Champness give the crock a washed look. Let dry. 

Then cutting out various flowers and greenery from your decor transfer and start layering and applying then to your crock so that it looks like the flowers are spilling out.

Almost there – Using the Typesetting Decor Stamp and Stone Gray Ink stamp on the word “bloom” to the top part of the chalkboard. Then using the Craquelure Stamp lightly stamp in the background around the crock to give it some dimension.

Using some chocolate float around the crock to make it pop.

  1. Great transformation Sam and a nice way to usher in Spring. I love how you used mixed media in this project! I’ve never used transfers, but will definitely remember your layering technique when I do!

  2. Sam, this is so cute! I have never used transfers and have only stamped a couple of times, I can see this is something I need to look into. I am loving all of the different crafts we are all sharing!

  3. Sam, you would never know your new chalkboard was once a dated thrift store find. It looks fantastic! I need to try out those transfers, too. What an amazing makeover! It was fun hopping with you!
