February Club Couture - Go Confidently // Come Chalk with Me!

Subscribe to Club Couture in February and discover what Henry David Thoreau was talking about when he said “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.” 

On-trend arrows, a mix of fonts, and the blocky shape of each element make this design perfect for so many gifts and apparel items, or snappy d├ęcor. Use the elements of this cut-apart Transfer individually on smaller projects, or combine them to confidently fill a larger surface. Make Henry proud!

February’s Club Couture subscription includes the Go Confidently Transfer as well as Chalkology™ Paste Singles in Black Velvet, Currant Jam, and Shimmer Gold. If that’s not inspiring, then nothing is!

Supplies Needed

Club Couture Transfer: Go Confidently

Chalkology Paste Singles: Black Velvet, Currant Jam, Shimmer Gold

Tools: Small Squeegee, Mini Squeegees, Transfer Trimmers, Color Trays, Fuzzing Cloth

Color and Placement Suggestions

Black Velvet: “Go Confidently” sentiment 
Currant Jam: “Direction” word only 
Shimmer Gold: Accent arrows

Follow these instructions to complete this project:

1. Remove your Transfer from its packaging.

2. Cut along the Transfer’s provided cut lines to separate the elements.

3. Carefully peel off the Transfer Backer Sheet of the element you’re using first.

4. “Fuzz” the Transfer element by gently pressing onto a Fuzzing Cloth and carefully pulling it upward to collect a bit of lint (this helps to more easily remove the Transfer from the surface after you’ve applied the paste).

5. Centering left to right, position the accent arrows element at the center top of the board. Smooth out the element to adhere, ensuring there are no bubbles or wrinkles.

6. Centering left to right, position the “Go Confidently” sentiment in the center of the board. Smooth out the element to adhere, ensuring there are no bubbles or wrinkles.

7. Knead each Chalkology Paste Single, cut or tear open the top, and squeeze the desired amount onto a Color Tray, using a new tray for each color.

8. Use a generous amount of paste on your squeegee and smooth it over the Transfer (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”).

9. Once the screen portion of the design is completely covered, squeegee the excess paste off as evenly as possible and scrape it back into the tray. The more excess paste you remove, the better the result will be.

10. Before the paste dries, slowly peel back the Transfer. To prevent any stretching in the Transfer, peel from the center instead of peeling diagonally. Immediately clean the Transfer with cool water (do not let it soak).

11. Dry the Transfer flat with the sticky side up.

12. Once the chalked sections are dry, repeat steps 3–5 and 7–10, using the accent arrows element again at the bottom of the surface. (If you work quickly after using it the first time, you may not need to wash the arrow element between uses.)

13. Once all Transfer elements are washed and dried, reapply the Backer Sheet to each and store flat.

Go confidently in the direction of your home décor!
