Donut Give Up!
I have added another medium to my repertoire – Chalk Couture. What is Chalk Couture? A revolutionary concept in decor and crafting that you won’t find anywhere else. Chalk Couture is revolutionizing DIY and home décor with category-creating products like Chalkology Paste, Chalk Transfers, Couture Ink and our exclusive Boards.
I purchased a journal from my local dollar store to use as a base. The transfer I used is a monthly subscription transfer but you can use any transfer that puts a smile on your face. I used Chalkology Paste Bright White for the base of all the donuts as well as the words. Before the words dried I sprinkled glitter on them. The silver glitter is chunky and in my experience didn’t stick and stay on after drying as well as the gold glitter, which is a fine glitter.
When you layer pastes you need to let each layer dry completely before adding more. I love to experiment when I play, so I used finger daubers and stamp ink to color my donut bases. I did a pink, light brown and a cream color. Then I did the next layer in Chalkology Paste Currant Jam and Chalkology Paste Peacock. For the pink I used the ink-dauber method. For the other layers I used all 3 colors as I wished to make my donuts look yummy.
The pastes are semi-permanent, which means when it dries it is hard, won’t rub off. However if you spray it with water you can wipe it off, unless you seal it. I wanted my journal to be permanent so I sprayed it with a Krylon sealer after everything was completely dry.
