I am on a mission to discover as many possible ways to use hand lettering. For Mother’s Day this year I was asked to do a large chalk mural on the chalk wall at our church to be used as decoration and as a background for pictures with mom. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for an EP (endless possibilities) blog post.
I decided to go about this a little differently, not only because of the size but also because of a slight time constraint. I’m a recovering perfectionist so…ya know… a whole wall would take me a looooong time to freehand. So I hit the iPad so I could work on it ahead of time, drew the design and projected it so I could trace and fill in.
When it came down to it, I used a white graphite pencil for tracing and just regular Crayola Sidewalk Chalk for the final coloring in.
My biggest inspiration was thinking of my own momma, the qualities she had, the mom I strive to be, and biblical words pertaining to mothers and wives.
I’m really happy with the way it turned out and my church loved it. It was pretty neat to watch everyone take their pictures with my work and post them on Facebook.
