XOXO Valentines DIY Home Decor // Come chalk with me! // Time to get your crafts on!

Have you started decorating for Valentines Day yet? I have just started and I've had my eye on this transfer for a while. I decided to use 3 different pinks and combine them so it looks like a the-dye effect. 

Fun fact - According to Wikipedia: Hugs and kisses, abbreviated in North America as XO or XOXO, is an informal term used for expressing sincerityfaithlove, or good friendship at the end of a written letteremail or text message. In the United Kingdom, the phrase 'hugs and kisses' is widely used. 

Now lets get crafting! 

Step 1: Grab all your supplies that you will need. This makes it so much easier so you don't have to get up while chalking. Always stir your paste colors before you use them. If they feel a little dry, add a little bit of distilled water to it and stir well. 

Step 2: Time to Fuzz Fuzz FUZZ! These newer transfers seem really sticky so fuzz it well so it doesn't stick too much to the surface. 

Step 3: Lay your transfer down onto your surface. Make sure it's completely flat.

Step 4: I wanted a the-dye feel so I put the Chalk Paste Mauvelous, Raspberry Sorbet and Peony chalk paste all over the transfer in small smears. 

Step 5: Once you have enough paste all over the transfer, take a small squeegee and start to mix them all together.  If there is too much paste on the squeegee, just wipe it off and keep going. On other projects when doing this effect, I've actually put the excess mixed paste in a separate jar to use later. It's pretty cool the colors you can make when mixing paste together, 
Step 6: One all done, lift up transfer and wash it off. The faster you wash it, the cleaner it will be. Use the Board Eraser to get it really clean, really easy. Its a great tool! After washing, lay it upside down so it can dry and you can put on the backing. These transfers are meant to be used 8-12 times each! But I have heard of people using them way more than that! Now clean your tools. During the chalking, I will wipe them will baby wipes, but when I am done, I just put them in a mason jar filled will water. These are easy to clean too. I've never even needed soap to clean them. 

Step 8: Display your awesome chalk art!
