Chalk Couture Have Courage Inspirational Double-Sided Sign: Chalking Series Project 8

 Chalk Couture Have Courage Inspirational Double-Sided Sign

Make a Chalk Couture Have Courage Sign on a Box Frame by Knick of Time | Before I show today’s project, I want to tell you about the sweetest conversation I had yesterday.  It was from a woman who asked if I would call her to help her figure out how to order a transfer and some supplies that she wanted.  I was a little hesitant at first because I don’t usually call total strangers.  But her message sounded sincere, so I decided to give her a call.  I discovered that the woman, Sonia, is a 71-year-old woman.  That explains why she wanted a phone call.  Older people prefer real conversation and the human voice as opposed to text messages.  I spent the next 15 minutes talking to her, and it was such a pleasure.   She has a Spanish accent that reminded me of my grandmother-in-law.  So, “Hola,” Sonia!

I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for the weekend and the first day of fall!  Thank goodness the temperatures are finally starting to fall also, because our air conditioner stopped working a few days ago and it’s been miserable here.  My husband is off this weekend,so he’ll take a look at it.

Today I’m going to show you how I made a double-sided inspirational sign with a different color on each side.

Here are the supplies I used:

It isn’t necessary to wax the box frames, but I did.  I started on the inside of the box frame, making sure there were no bubbles under the transfer.  That’s where the angled squeegee comes in handy to smooth the transfer down firmly.  Once you apply the paste, it’s so important to remove the lines left by the squeegee.  Go from top to bottom, then side to side. Peel and reveal … Choosing the green paste was perfect!

Other than projects made with ink, usually you can remove the Chalkology paste.  But the box frame is a one-time use only.  It is double-sided, so you actually get two uses in one.  I hope you like it and learned something new.  If you missed the first seven projects in this series, you can find them all HERE.  If you would be so kind as to pin it or share it, I’d really appreciate it!  Have a beautiful weekend!

  1. That is pretty cool, Angie!

    I have a question, though: I wanted to see where you got the box frame but when I clicked on it from the supply list it wouldn’t work. I got a page saying that there was an error “originating in the code” whatever that means! Do you anything about why the page wouldn’t come up or is it my ancient computer?
