Hi Everyone! I'm so happy to be here and look forward to sharing my projects 
using Fleurette Bloom’s original SVG files, printables and digital papers.

Here is a Valentine Decor project I created using Fleurette’s Dia De Los Muertos 3D Kit.


I started out with a 10.25" x 8.5" chalkboard from Walmart. 

Here’s what you'll need:


I opened the banner file in my Silhouette Designer Edition. I ungrouped and deleted the border elements. I sized it to fit my chalkboard and cut out of vinyl on my Cameo. Weed out the areas you want to paint using the Xacto Knife.

I transfered to the chalkboard using transfer tape and added blue painters tape to cover up my frame. Paint the exposed areas with the foam brush and use a fine brush for the tight areas.  Use a small amount of acrylic paint and dab on for a chalk effect.
After it dries remove the tape and vinyl. (this is the fun part!)


I painted the frame with a light coat of white acrylic so the wood grain shows through. Cut the Small Rosettes from Fleurette Bloom's Lush Flowers 3D SVG Collection. I used the tweezers to hold the end and wrapped the paper to form the rosette. I secured with a glue gun and added colored pearls.


I hope you enjoyed my project. I am very excited and honored to be on the team.
