Commitment with Chalk–Proverbs 16:3

Proverbs 16-3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do and he will establish your plans


Looks like I am jumping onto the chalk boarding band wagon.  It is so much fun.  All the creativity and none of the chalky mess.  Here is my FIRST attempt.  I made it with PowerPoint, free fonts, and a free background (see links below).

Yup!  PowerPoint is my go to editing tool for images, next up is Picasa, and then PicMonkey.  I know nothing about Photoshop.   Hopefully this post will give people encouragement to be creative with programs they already have on their computers.  I will try PicMonkey next and let you know how it goes.

If there is interest – I can do a tutorial on how I made this image using PowerPoint. :)  Just leave me a comment below or on Facebook.

Without further adieu here are the details / things I learned while making this chalkboard art piece.

  • First place I go for creative inspiration and discoveries is – you guessed it – Pinterest.   I started a pin board all about chalk.  Found my favorite chalk board fonts, banners, inspiration images, and background all for free.  Click the image to check out the “Chalk it up” pin board.
