I saw this idea to create a sweet photo project using chalk a few weeks ago and recreated it for a project for Father’s Day. Pop over to the BLACK’s blog for how I did it! It was really super simple and I’m kind of obsessed with BLACKS Large Format Prints. (Look how perfect it works in an Ikea Ribba Frame)
I’m in LOVE with this project. See it over here!
ADDING A BLUE BACKGROUND AFTER TAKING THE PHOTO
I added in the blue chalk background after the fact which is a really simple trick that involves 1 change in your photo editing program – a feature that most programs have. It’s to change the Opacity of your paintbrush from 100% (which would be full coverage) to less – I used 33% – which means the background still shows through. Also – if your program has it – pick a paintbrush that has some variations in the edging.
