I pledge allegiance

to the flag of
The United States of America...
and for the republic for which it stands, 
one nation under God, Indivisible
with Liberty and Justice
for all...


enjoy your Independence day,

everyday...

chalkboard art...

my friend had asked if I would make a sign for her 
son's wedding...

I sketched a few ideas
and went straight to the chalk...


I prepped the board by rubbing chalk all over it and then wiping it off
it was much simpler than i had thought
and very
fun and relaxing!


I think it turned out pretty good!


(my friend picked up the chalkboard at
homegoods!)
