Chalkboard Wedding


I had a request from new customer Candace Watts to paint a canvas that looked like a chalkboard but wasn't actually a chalkboard.  Well, I love a challenge!


She wanted the name and established date but also this beautiful Bible verse.


I hate that the photos didn't turn as nicely as I would like.  Canvases with a black background are hard to photograph for some reason.  You get the idea of just how pretty it turned out!


Here's the sample invitation that was send for inspiration.  I pulled some of my curly-que designs from it.  I also got the idea to put the Bible verse in a box and the last name font from the invite.  I hope the Barkers love their new artwork!

Thank you so much for this! I can't wait for them to open it when they return from their honeymoon!

So cool! I was just at a wedding this weekend where the decor used chalkboards - for the menu, welcome sign, etc. Going to check out your etsy store right now!
