I think just about everyone has one.
Some people even use theirs.
Mine is purely decorative.
No lists, notes or menus on my chalkboard.
I'm not opposed to that. I just don't do it.
Have you ever looked at chalkboards like this one
and wondered what artist drew on it?
It just looks so artsy.
Look at the rooster.
Well, you too can have drawings that looks that good, even if you don't think you can draw!
(imagine I said that in an infomercial voice.)
This is all you need.
A picture you like, some soft construction paper, a pen or pencil and chalk.
Take your chalk and cover your construction paper. Really get it on there thick.
You're making something like graphite tracing paper, but with chalk. The soft construction paper holds the chalk better than regular paper. In fact, regular paper doesn't work at all.
Ask me how I know that.
Then tape your picture to the other (non-chalk) side.
Tape it to your chalkboard, and go over the lines with a hard pencil or a ball point pen.
Use a pen and a lot of pressure if you want a really clear image
Like this bee,
or less pressure or a pencil for a softer image.
It's that easy!
