ART: chalkboards, chalkboards and more chalkboards

Anyone that has stopped by to say hello at a show recently has seen my newest YellowDog item.  Chalkboards!  I purchase blank ready to hang boards and turn them into chalkboards with original artwork.  I stumbled upon this colorful chalkboard paint a while back and knew I had to do something.  It took a few tries to find the right board that would take the paint well and look nice.  It also took a while to find the right paint to then use for my YellowDog images.  It has to be slightly water proof yet take to the chalkboard paint.  The results:

Currently, I can make them in three sizes:  8"x10", 11"x14" and 16"x20".  I am slightly limited by the color choices of the special paint I must use but if you have any requests, please let me know!  The boards above all sold yesterday at the Go Dog Go event at Healthy Living (except the kitty one) but I am always looking for new suggestions and ideas.  And I admit it, the red chalkboards are my favorite.  You gotta see them in person.  The color is just too gorgeous!!
