One of my very favorite things about this era we live in with blogs and Pinterest is that so many makers provide great art that you can easily access… much of it reasonably priced or even free. It’s truly a quick and fun way to bring seasonal and visual design into your home. And once downloaded, you can simply frame it or make it your own by transferring it onto something inspired.
It’s probably no surprise that I’m particularly drawn to those pieces that are done with amazing lettering. Signs and chalkboard art grab my attention like no other and I continue to incorporate this style into our home.
This season I’m sharing a Autumn Harvest print that you can download and transfer in just a few short minutes.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Mini A-frame sign – similar here
- Chalk pens – in white and orange
- Autumn Harvest Art
- Chalk, tape and a pencil
Download your free Autumn Harvest print here: Fall Chalk Art.
Rub chalk on the back of your art and tape into place
Trace over lettering. Using your pencil, trace the lettering to transfer it on to your surface.
Remove art and go over the lettering with your chalk pen. Once the chalk has had time to dry, you can go through and clean-up any chalk residue with a Q-tip.
You’ll notice that the print does not include the pumpkins. This is intentional because they are something you are going to have fun adding freehand.
It’s true… it’ll be fun, I promise!
Draw pumpkins. Many people draw an orange circle when they want to draw a pumpkin because that’s what they think they see. Instead, you want to draw what you really see.
What I see is a series of parenthesis.
To draw a pumpkin, draw a series of parenthesis and fill the space in. To get a little definition, don’t fill everything in so that the black from the chalkboard can peek through.
Once you have your pumpkins drawn, add stems, grass and vines. It’s chalk so it’s very forgiving. Play around and add as many pumpkins as you like.
A new piece to add to your autumn harvest table.
During this holiday season, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite free downloadable art from artists around the web over on Facebook. If you haven’t found enough lettered art around the internet on your own, be sure to follow Storypiece on Facebook for even more inspiration.
