October Club Couture - Grateful // Come Chalk with Me!


Fall is a time of thanksgiving, a time to reflect on blessings, and a season to appreciate what you have. Use this Chalk Transfer® design to create a sweet reminder of the things you have to be grateful for. The double-outlined oval shape brings a softness to this design. The stalks of wheat create movement for your eye and a sense of sophistication. This month’s Club Couture™ shipment includes Chalkology® Paste Singles in a fresh autumn pallet of Camel, Papaya, and Shimmer Olive. We think the design looks especially great on a 9” x 12” Pallet Sign (item S191104)!

This October, focus on gratitude. Focus on the blessings. Focus on the benefits of being a part of Club Couture!

Supplies Included

-Club CoutureTM Transfer: Grateful—October 
-Club Couture Chalkology Paste Singles: Camel, Papaya, Shimmer Olive

Supplies Needed

-Surface: Pallet Sign (9" × 12")
-Tools: Color Trays, Fuzzing Cloth, Mini Squeegee, Multi-Tool

Color and Placement Suggestions

-Camel: “very thankful”, “incredibly blessed”, small line details 
-Papaya: “grateful” sentiment
-Shimmer Olive: oval border, wheat stalks

Follow these instructions to complete this project:

1. Remove your Transfer from its packaging and carefully peel off the Transfer Backer Sheet.

2. “Fuzz” the Transfer 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.

3. Center the Grateful Transfer on the surface and smooth it out to ensure it has properly adhered and that there are no bubbles or wrinkles.

4. 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.

5. Beginning from the top, use a small amount of paste to smooth over the Transfer (see “Color and Placement Suggestions”, and keep in mind step 7). Pull the paste inward, toward the middle of the Transfer to avoid mixing Chalk paste colors. Use the Multi-tool to chalk fine details.

6. As you work through each detail and color, use your Mini Squeegee to clear 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.

7. For best results, use the chalk-and-pull method: chalk the top half of the design and peel back only that portion of the Transfer to let the paste dry on the surface before continuing (use the Quick Dry Tool for a fast dry). This allows you to work in smaller sections without having the paste dry in the screen, making the Transfer difficult to remove. To prevent any stretching in the Transfer, peel from the center or from both corners, instead of peeling diagonally.

8. Once the top half of the design is dry, ensure the bottom half of the Transfer is still secure on the surface and repeat steps 5 and 6 for the rest of the design.

9. Before the paste dries, remove your Transfer from the surface and immediately clean the Transfer with cool water (do not let it soak).

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

11. Reapply the Transfer Backer Sheet and store flat.

12. Admire your new creation and pat yourself on the back!
