My first order of business was covering my board with ribbon.  I wanted the background to have lots of color and pattern since I would be adding a more plain chalkboard overtop.  I cut the ribbons to size and glued the edges to the back for a clean look.

Next I sprayed a piece of cardboard with chalkboard paint and cut it into an oval shape.  I wanted a whimsical look, so I purposefully cut it not perfect.  I added some gold trim with the paint pen.
Here is my tip of the day!  For a chalk look without future smears, use a white colored pencil.  Be sure you know what your design will look like because you can’t erase once you start.

I added a little “stay sharp” sign and added a small piece of cardboard to the back to give it some dimension.

It has a chalkboard vibe but with more whimsey and color.
