today i've been oohing and ahhing over valerie's chalk art at lily & val. valerie first hand draws in chalk, then meticulously paints over them using a technique that preserves the realistic look of chalk with the durability of acrylic paint. the result looks like an authentic chalk masterpiece, but won't ever rub off! i think these would make great christmas gifts, or add the perfect touch to your holiday decor. visit her shop or website for originals, digital and prints.
