Chalking at Artastic

I bought chalks specially for scrapbooking when I first started.I must admit I don't use them much. This layout has a strip of vellum down the left hand side.The hearts have been coloured on the back with chalks.I oversprayed the chalk with hairspray to stop it smudging.The photo is of my daughter at 8 months and her cousin aged 12.
and here is the stimulus picture featuring Jenny Mc Cracken

That is such a cool technique Julene and your hearts have turned out really well - I must remember the hairspray next time! Thanks so much for playing along with us at ARTastic.

I love the colours you have chosen with this fab photo, it is great to scrap our earlier days isn't it!
