Nichole, one of our Papertrey Peeps challenged us a couple of weeks ago to do something outside of our comfort zone. I decided to try the blackboard technique with Prismacolor pencils. You learn more about this technique on Jennifer Ellefson's blog here and here.
I chose PTI's Year of Flowers:Lily of the Valley.
Here's a second card using this technique.
Thanks Nichole for this challenge. I now have a new technique that I will be using again.
The blackboard takes me back to those many years of using a chalkboard when teaching before white boards and smart boards came along. Yes, I am old enough that when I first started teaching students got the privilege of beating the erasers on the sidewalk and we diagrammed sentences on the chalkboard.
Have great weekend!
