  1. Were do you get the fonts to do your beautiful chalkboard art? Do you have a tutorial on how to down load the fonts to make them your own?

    • Hi May! I search for free fonts and download them to my computer. I use a mac, so I can just add them to font book. I’m not sure how to add fonts to a pc…I’m guessing there’s a tutorial out there for it! Good luck!
