DIY Chalkboard Quotes and Notes

With so many attribution-free resources available online, it’s easier to make your own chalkboard typography for Facebook or Pinterest quotes and notes than you might think. One of the best places to pick up completely free photos in a hurry is Pixabay.com. As they explain on Pixabay, ” You can use any Pixabay image without attribution in digital and printed form, even for commercial applications.” Great news, right? Once you create a free account, do a quick search for “chalkboard” and you’ll see a good selection of options like the one I used in my examples below. Next, all you need is a good chalkboard font or two. The fonts I’ve used below are chalk-hand-lettering-shaded and Chalk it up; both are available from one of my favorite font websites, dafont.com. Install the fonts and drop your background and your personalized text into any kind of image-editing software. I prefer Adobe Photoshop, but there are also a dozen free Photoshop-like alternatives to choose from that you can find online. Feel free to use the high resolution chalkboard quotes below, or even better, make your own. Enjoy!

Do Something Great Today

Ten years ago today, my husband proposed. After a half-hour of speechlessness (rare for me), I finally said “yes!” That was a per-ret-ty great day. Every day holds new hope, new creativity, new potential. Here is free inspirational graphic, “Do Something Great Today” in a few different colors, powerpoint size but still 300 dpi (high resolution). Enjoy!

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.” Lamentations 3:22-24 (NIV)
