My take on May Club Couture - Love Conquers All

I finally got a chance to get to my Club Couture Transfer since my youngest was down for a nap and the other kids weren't being too needy and were watching TV. I knew this was my time to get some chalking in!

I'll show you all my steps and walk you through the process.

Here's what you need to make this: 
Club Couture Transfer
Chalk Pastes 
A Surface
Fuzzing Cloth
Small Squeegee
Stir Sticks

1. First things first is picking out your chalk colors you want to use. I wanted to use pastels for this so I used:

Seafoam (retired)
Bright White 
Morning Sky 
2. Before starting, I like to stir all the chalk paste, so it has a good consistency when I am ready to use  it.  

3. Next I lay my surface down and figure out how I want my transfer to lay on it. Then I fuzz the transfer so it doesn't stick to surface too much. You don't want to ruin a transfer by it being too sticky and stretching it. 

4. Lay your transfer down on your surface and make sure that it has adhered well. To get crisp lines, press down and make sure there are no air bubbles. 

5. Start chalking! Start with the 1st color at the top and work your way down. That way if you need to lift it, you can pull down, but continue to chalk. 
      ***Tip- To make sure your chalk doesn't dry before its ready to take the transfer off, you can you the lift method. Chalk a section, and then lift just enough where you have chalked. Either hold and let it dry (long way) or hold and dry with hair dryer (short way). I didn't have my hair dryer handy so I just let it dry. Once its dry, which doesn't take too long, carefully lay it down, but don't press it down. Just press down where you haven't chalked again if it lifted a bit.

6. Once you have completed everything, go wash your transfer! I like to wash it right away because sometimes the paste or ink will stain it. I like my transfers to look new so I try to take care of them the best I can. I have the best way to wash them and let them air dry too! Ill have to make a blog post soon! Wash your squeegees and your stir sticks too while you are at it! I normally only use 1 squeegee, and just clean it with a baby wipe between colors. Saves on cleaning time. 

7. All done! Time to show off your masterpiece! 

I LOVE how this turned out! What do you think? 
 I can't wait to see what June's Club Couture will be!
