Greetings all! As you may or may not know I’ve been obsessed with chalkboard art and chalkboard lettering on the iPadpro! I really love the entire process of sketching and designing a one of a kind piece with little or no mess from actual chalk!
I’ve always admired other chalk artists and wondered how I can achieve the same look without the hassle. It was my dream to create printables that I can share with other chalkboard fanatics!
Here is a look through of some of my favorite creations from “The States Collection.”
2 – I add color on top of the wording. In the layers icon, I add a layer above the white lettering and brush over some color and erase.
3 – Kill empty space! If there are any gaps around your lettering I think it’s best to add some floral elements or squiggles to fill up the empty space and keep the art piece look full and orderly.
4 – I “merge down” all layers under the layer icon and center the lettering and elements within the top of the artboard.
5 – After I’ve finished my design I clean up the background. I add a black chalk behind all elements and lettering and change the opacity. I do this by selecting the layer and taping it with two fingers. Then swipe left to make the layer lighter.
When this is complete you have yourself a new printable!
Thanks for stopping by!
