Happy Friday, to you!
I am so soo very excited to share my chalkboard globe with you today.
One of my assignments for the Maya Road Booth was to "make something into a chalkboard". I had been dying to alter one of my globes for quite a while so it seemed like the obvious choice. I started out with a brightly colored, flat globe (without the elevation bumps/ridges) because I wanted it to be an easy surface to write on. I then, chose a phrase to cut out in vinyl with my Cameo. The font is called Arsenale White. And this is how it looked pre-paint...
I loved the way this looked and I really didn't want to mess up this beautiful globe, but I had to press on despite my fears. From this point, I made sure that the vinyl was stuck down really, really well, I taped off all the metal, primed the globe, and gave it a few coats of chalkboard paint before removing the vinyl and painters tape. I decorated the base and added a sweet little plane to the top and this is how it turned out...
I can't wait for it to return to me. I have just the spot in my dining room for it.
You can find a complete supply list for this project in my post on the Maya Road DT Blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
