I made these for my Aug blog post over at scrapsofcolorespire.blogspot.com. I made them for my grandniece & nephew. TFL :}
I painted the easels a bright red (nothing says back-to-school like the color red), then added a little masking and stamping using some white distress stain. After I covered the wood letters using pages from the D's and J's of an old dictionary. I inked the top of each letter using distress ink and placed them on the easels. I also placed a polaroid frame for the “must have” first day of school photo, then finished by adding varies old school embellishments from my stash.
The back side of the chalkboard is a dry eraser board; I left it blank so that they can write or in Jayden's case draw their own thoughts of their first day starting at a new school.
