How To Spin That Chalk Trend with Fine Art


Chalk is no longer a lost art. In fact, chalk signs and decorations are everywhere! Seriously, go to Pinterest and look up chalk art. Your eyes will be delightfully bombarded with chalk calligraphy, chalk numbers, and chalk doodles. Part of what makes chalk so fantastic is that it is so versatile. It can look vintage, classy, or silly.

You can get some fantastic chalk calligraphy ideas in this article from Simply Trends: TREND ALERT: Chalk it up to good design and see how this look is perfect for any room in the house!

But what if you are not a chalk artist? What if you still want fine art images mixed with this chalking trend?

Well, you can make a image look like chalk. Just create a chalkboard background (in some program like Adobe Photoshop or Gimp), take your drawing and alter it to look like chalk (you will have to fiddle with image filters and brightness/contrast), then copy that image onto the chalkboard background.

Of course, that’s a lot of work…..

An easier solution is to simply order some ready made fine art chalk designs in Noses ‘N’ Poses. 😉
