June 2021 Club Couture - A Beautiful Thing // Come Chalk with Me!

What do you get when you pair a flowy, curvy sentiment with a gentle nod to Scandinavian design elements? You get a beautiful thing that is darn-near perfect! (Because as they say, “a beautiful thing is never perfect.”) Pairing the sentiment with the various cut-apart elements is an easy way to breathe life into this Transfer. We think this looks best with our classic Bright White Chalkology® Paste and the three brightly colored paste singles included with your Club Couture™ shipment: Couture Coral, Daffodil, and Eucalyptus.

The sweet hummingbird and floral accents are great for watercoloring techniques. Chalk the element, then add a bit of water to your paste, mix together, and paint inside the lines with a paintbrush.

We can’t wait to see how you’ll bring this bright and summery design together in all the most perfect ways.

Supplies Included:

-Club Couture Transfer: A Beautiful Thing

-Chalkology® Paste Singles: Couture Coral, Daffodil, Eucalyptus

Supplies Needed

-Surface: Sylvie White Frame (Black, 9" × 12")

-Chalkology Paste : Bright White

-Tools: Small Squeegee
Mini SqueegeeTransfer TrimmersColor TraysFuzzing Cloth

Color and Placement Suggestions

-Bright White: “A beautiful thing is never perfect”

-Couture Coral: Hummingbird, 5-petal flowers

-Daffodil: Round flowers

-Eucalyptus: Greenery

Follow these instructions to complete this project:

1. Remove your Transfer from its packaging. Cut along the Transfer’s provided cut lines to separate the elements.

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

3. “Fuzz” the Transfer element by gently pressing onto a Fuzzing Cloth and carefully pulling it upward. This will make the Transfer easier to remove from the surface after you’ve applied the paste.

4. Center the “A beautiful thing is never perfect” element on the surface. Smooth the Transfer out to ensure it has properly adhered and that there are no air bubbles or wrinkles.

5. Knead your Chalkology Paste Singles. Cut open the corner of each packet and squeeze the desired amount of paste onto a Color Tray, using a new tray for each color.

6. Smooth a generous amount of Chalkology Paste over the Transfer using a squeegee (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”).

7. 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.

8. Before the paste dries, slowly peel back the Transfer. To prevent any stretching in it, peel the Transfer back vertically from two parallel corners, instead of diagonally.

9. Immediately clean the Transfer with cool water and a Board Eraser. Do not leave the Transfer in water or let it soak.

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

11. Once the chalked sections are dry, repeat steps 2–10 for the hummingbird, floral, and greenery elements (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”). Let each layer of paste dry completely before adding additional paste layers.

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

13. Relish your creation and embrace the beauty of homemade projects!
