Valentine's Day is fast approaching, D's teacher wanted to do a special project with her class for the occasion. Last year she had a "photo shoot" with her class. The pictures turned out amazing. The parents loved their gift. This year she wanted to take the kids picture but she was thinking a different background. D's teacher is super creative and a great friend of mine. I suggested a chalkboard backdrop. Chalkboards seem to be all the rage in wedding photos and on Pinterest.
You'd think being at a school we would be able to find a chalkboard but everyone has a Promethean or white boards. We didn't let this stop us.
We used black butcher paper and chalk. Then we taped the paper to a bulletin board.
