Chalkboard Art 1.0

I’ve been intrigued by all the chalkboard art I’ve seen on Pinterest, and I’ve always enjoyed “lettering,” so here is my first meager and humble attempt:

DSC_0002-2I love this verse.  In my mind’s eye, I can picture the Levites, ministering in the temple and standing before the Lord, morning and evening, to offer thanks and praise.  Indeed even now, the Lord is the One who makes all of His children able to stand in His presence. 

This little project required a bit of planning.  First I bought a frame, then went to Lowe’s to have a board cut to size.  I painted it with chalkboard paint and then planned how I wanted the verse to look.  I wanted “Praise and Glorify” to flow freely, just like our praise should.  The Lord is our Rock and our Fortress, so I wanted the lettering for His Name to be strong and majestic.  “Every morning and every evening” follows the circadian rhythm of praise, a simple and even font.

I wrote this out on graph paper with pencil, then chalked all over the back of it, using a pencil to transfer the words onto the chalkboard.  Then I used wet-erase chalk ink markers to write the words on the chalkboard.  Ta-Da!

May we all find many reasons to stand before our Lord today, thanking and praising Him for His greatness.

    Julie,
    That looks amazing!! 🙂 So, THAT’S how all those people online have done their chalkboards so neatly… I had never heard of chalk ink before reading this post! I will definitely be buying some for our chalkboard greeting at our Beach House. 🙂
