I'm a sucker for learning a new creative skill so it's thrilling when I get the chance. When Valerie McKeehan's Complete Book of Chalk Lettering popped up in my book recommendations, I knew I had to have it.
Last night I gave my first design a try. It is by no means perfect but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I still can't quite master the perfectly sharp lines that is pretty key to a neat letter but I'm sure with a little more time, it will get easier. There will be lots more practice in my future but there was something very zen about the whole thing so I'll definitely be doing more. Maybe my office chalkboard wall will one day look the way I want it?
This post WAS not sponsored nor did I receive the book for free - I just really enjoyed the book. Lots of chalk lettering inspiration can be found at the author's blog Lily & Val.
