Chalk the Block Cincinnati

Chalk the Block

Cincinnati at Liberty Center

October 13, 2018

Last chalk event of the season was another Chalk the Block in Cincinnati at Liberty Center. It was actually not all the way to Cincinnati. Since we were already living in Dayton it was only 20 min away. What a difference from the weekend before it was about 40 degrees that morning!
I decided to do the Fisher Price toy design that I had planned for the week before. 
This week I had a deadline, because I needed to make it to my cousin Nelda's 80th birthday party that afternoon. So I got there early and was the first to finish.
My phone died halfway through the morning so I was unable to finish taking more process photos. My new camera also died. I still need to figure out how to use that camera!
I was able to finish up early and we did make it to Nelda's party.

 Here is the finished product...

Here is how it came about...
                                                                   Ready to begin!

Looking good. Need to work on the details yet.

 All finished! The first one finished.

 Look pretty good!

All finished. Time for lunch and then off to my cousin's Nelda's 80th birthday party. Stopped to buy Nelda a Birthday Bear at Build a Bear with the gift card that I got for doing my chalk art. We arrived at her party just in time to visit a little and help with clean up! She was so happy to see us, because I had told her that we wouldn't be able to make it. But we did!

Trinity Church Englewood Chalk Event

Saturday October 6, 2018

I was contacted early in the summer by a friend of my son, Pastor Brian, who is a pastor at Trinity Church. His church is a "store front" church in Englewood. He said that their church was going to be doing a chalk event to raise money for Opioid abuse. He asked me if I would be interested in helping out with the event. I said that I would help out. 
Unfortunately I got so busy with moving that I had very little time to help. Fortunately the event was still organized without me. It ended up being mostly people from the church doing the chalk, with a lot of kids, doing the chalk art.
Since this event was for a Lutheran Church, I decided to create a picture of the Luther Rose in chalk.
Here is the finished product...
What follows is how it came about...
 Arriving at Trinity Church
 Pastor Brian and me before the event began.
 The surface was less than perfect. But I got the chance to choose the best spot.

 My design required me to draw a circle. Great big thanks to my husband for help drawing the circle.

 My design and info about me.

 My design is sketched out and I'm ready to begin!
 Step one
 Step 2

 Step 3
 Step 4

 Step 5
 Basic design finished. Now to do the black outline.

 With the black outline
 Added the words and then all finished!

 Looks pretty good. If I don't say so myself!


 The next day, Sunday, we decided to go to church at Trinity Church. Here we are with Pastor Brian
My chalk art still looks pretty good the next day too!
