Create Beautiful Backgrounds from Old Chalk


Do you have sets of chalks which you have not used for years? I know that I do.

I decided to get my old chalks out, and I tried something different.

I filled a basin full of cold water, and used a craft knife to gently scrape off some chalk from the block so it fell onto the water. If you are gentle the chalk will float beautifully.

I then lowered some white card onto to the water so it floated a little.

Then I pulled the paper up, and the chalk had left all sorts of lovely patterns behind!


As this months theme is Fit For A Queen with a Twist of adding gems I decided to use the adorable Crowned Bunny stamp. I stamped her in Archival Black ink and used watercolour paints to give her some colour. A tiny gem star completed her crown nicely. A little fluff of flowersoft gave her a cute little bunny tail.

Join in this months Fun Challenge and create something Fit For A Queen.
