A few weeks ago I was asked by my friend Lori at Luxe Lizzies Boutique here in Richmond, Indiana, to handletter a chalkboard sign for her shop.
She had already trusted me with her store windows so I guess it only made sense to keep giving me things to draw on!
She wanted the sign to be weather proof, so even though it was a chalkboard she asked me to use permanent paint pen instead of chalk or chalk markers. Makes total sense, but whew did that up my anxiety level since every mark I made on her adorable chalkboard was 100% permanent.
Here are a few in progress photos...
And here is how it turned out...
I created the same design on both sides using paint pens and a gold sharpie (which looks SO good on the black). And look at those doodled windows in the background! Proud girl over here.
Lori loves it and I am really happy with how it stands out and adds a fun vibe to her already awesome shop.
Hope to do more projects like this down the road!
