PTI Make It Monday #98: Chalkboard Techinque

This week Papertrey Ink has a tutorial and challenge hosted by Betsy Veldman. She has shown us a technique to create an amazing chalkboard look on our projects.  If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find all the info here.

I decided to change my focus this year and get back to scrapbooking.  To do this I will be utilizing the Project Life pocket pages.  So, if I can stick to the plan, you should be seeing fewer cards and many more PL pocket inserts on the blog this year!

I used Betsy's awesome technique to make my first album insert:

FYI - I found that my kids' crayola white pencil didn't do the job.  I had to dig into my stash of art supplies from my high school years to get a Berol brand and it worked great!  Bonus - I had two white pencils in that stash!

Supplies:  Versamark ink, white colored pencil, Studio Calico stamp set, and all the rest of the supplies are from PTI.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!


  1. First of all - I love the sentiment...and then the whole design is so well executed...LOVE it!

  2. I love this! I especially love how you used that Studio Calico "Epic" on its own.... I have that one and will have to remember this!
