I have to admit, I haven't fully embraced the Chalkboard trend going on right now. Black and white alone just don't spark much creativity in me. I'm a color girl. However, there's a challenge at Whimsical Twist to use this chalkboard trend in a project, and there's nothing like a challenge to get you out of your comfort zone. I combined with a challenge at Scrapbooksteals.com to use chevrons. So when you combine the two and make sure to add a little bit of color, this is what you get (at least it's what I get):
Papers are by WRMK, chipboard letters by Cosmo Cricket, gems by Studio G, and I used an American Crafts Galaxy Marker to add a little white stitch detail around the edge. I think it works!
