Chalkboard isn’t just for school anymore! In fact, you can barely find them in schools these days, but it’s a huge trend in home decor and photography. The trend has made its way to digital scrapbooking as well. Chalkboard is both versatile and fun to use. Let’s take a look at The Lilypad inspiration, all of which is 20% off in the shop until October 7th.
Although you’re more likely to find a smart board in the school room these days, chalkboard is still a great choice for evoking that scholarly feeling on your layouts. For a more simple take on the trend, try a journal card. It’s a quick and easy way to incorporate chalkboard onto your page. Alternatively, a full page of chalkboard is a fun and dynamic canvas for school layouts.
As chalkboard word art has proliferated across Pinterest, it’s become very trendy for everyday use. Take a look at these wonderful daily life spreads that use chalkboard beautifully.
At its essence, chalk is an artistic medium. Don’t forget the creative possibilities for using chalk in a more themed way. Whether you want a stylized look or whether you are scrapping your child’s driveway doodles, the possibilities are endless with this trend.
