    So... Dana Tanamachi, I am not! That being said, this was, SUPER SUPER fun to do! Working on this, increased my appreciation for people who work with this chalk, tenfold! I just wanted to make something for my little ones (4 and 6) to countdown the days til Halloween. I thought a chalkboard would be fun for them. I'm in Boston, MA, in the USA, and being so close to Salem, where the witch trials were held, Halloween is really a big deal!

    I worked on it at night, sitting up in bed watching TV - it was really relaxing. Not totally done yet, just working on the framework around the main art. So here's my latest project, counting down the days with my littles!

    Very impressive work! It looks super clean and I would love to try it in some of our photography projects. Will need to look for a suitable chalkboard to get started now.. I have a feeling it will take a lot of practice to get something this nice!

    Have you done any more art with chalkboards/chalk since?

    I'm just seeing this post now.. I'm getting ready to work on a HUGE project - this was a small board, maybe 25 inches x 17 inches, somewhere around there.. but we've painted a wall in my children's playroom with blackboard paint - and I think I'm going to attempt a full wall mural. I'm SUPER excited about it! I'll have to post pictures as soon as I have the outline figured out!
