Chalkboard Art for Camping

We're still working on the kitchen remodel, its a big job so we'll be in there for a while.  The cabinets are on the "to-do" list right now and since we are using our existing cabinets and re-working them, we've ran into a few snags we are trying to work out,  Maybe next week I'll have some pictures for you to see!  Check out my Instagram link on the right for some sneak peeks!
On to today's subject. I decided to decorate our little chalkboard with a new subject.  Camping!  We haven't gone camping as much as we've wanted to, but we will get there some day.  This is what I'm thinking all the time...Let's go camping!
I even added the little ham can camper that I'd love to have some day.  They are so cute and it would be so much fun to restore one and go camping in it!
See the blue chalk outline around the word camping. It made a huge difference in the look of my final art piece.
Here's the before look that I stared at for about a week thinking something was missing.  It just needed something else to make it look finished.  The "m" and the "p" were not separated and it was bothering me.
I like it much better outlined.  It makes the letters more defined and also highlights the main subject of the art.  I think I've told you before that I have a hard time erasing these chalkboard creations, but this one may be even harder to do!

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!

  10. You might try hanging a portion of nylon stocking tied off at one end with fresh coffee grounds, (Yep) then tie off other end and place a hook (shower curtain) or "S" hook to a shelf. this is what a mover told me to place in a fridge or freezer when closing up while not in use. Also at places like Walmart in section like clothes pens and line, there is a charcoal absorption block,, to pull odor.
