Chalkboard Canvas Banner

I have been busy getting ready for our local holiday craft fair and wanted to share one of the items I have made.  I will be sharing more over the next few days so be sure and check back!
I made a chalkboard banner using the Banner Simply Created Kit.
I used chalkboard spray paint on the canvas banner pieces and it worked great!
Now I have a banner that I can change out for any season.
I haven't gotten out my Christmas décor yet but when I do will have my Nativity set on top of the piano and did this banner to go with it.
I used a stencil for the "JOY" and "WORLD" and, obviously, free-handed the "to the".

I made up kits with 9 banner pieces to create words for several occasions. 
Some ideas to use the 9 banners:
Christmas, Celebrate, Blessings, Halloween, and Valentine.
I am sure there are many other ideas and of course you can used smaller words.
Before using the chalkboard banner you need to "season" the pieces by rubbing chalk on them and wiping off with a chalkboard eraser.  Then you can use a stencil or free-hand your lettering with chalk.  I found when using a stencil to color it in with the chalk and then rub the chalk with your finger before removing the stencil helps fill it in better.
If you're in the Grangeville, ID area be sure and stop by and see me at the craft fair!
Happy Stampin'-
