Create a Chalkboard Look on a Layout Using Designer Stamps

Hello! It’s Aly Dosdall here again today. Having designer products that coordinate with my favorite Echo Park paper collections makes creating so much easier, and opens up a ton of possibilities. I used the coordinating Designer Stamps from the darling new Teacher’s Pet collection to add a chalkboard look to my layout about my daughter’s school accomplishments.

I started out by cutting up some ruler strips from the Rulers patterned paper and adhering them to the background page to create a mat for my photo. To add to the unity of the layout I decided to create a ruler border across the bottom of the page.

I created the border using the ruler stamp and some embossing powder. I stamped with watermark ink on the green chalkboard paper, and then sprinkled white embossing powder over the image to create a chalkboard effect.

Tip: use a foam brush to remove excess embossing powder before using your heat gun.

I created another chalkboard look by stamping the school days flag on white smooth cardstock with chalkboard green ink. Since the stamp was designed with a chalkboard texture to it, the image takes on a chalkboard look with the green ink.

Then I cut out the flag and hot glued a toothpick to the back of it before adding it to my layout. I finished off my page by adding some journaling, a die cut title, some stickers, and wood veneer stars.
