Another Free Chalkboard Background!

You all may remember THIS free chalkboard download I gave away last year. Well, this year I've been trying to branch out from doing so many chalkboard related graphics... but  when I created this background for a special project, I couldn't help myself and I am totally addicted again! Haha!

A few things I love about this particular background:

- Because it has the appearance of a slightly damp chalkboard, with deep tones of black, it really makes white graphics & lettering pop out.

- This one still isn't super scratched up, which makes it the perfect medium between a totally clean slate & a well worn chalkboard.

- Lastly, it was taken from a photograph I took of June's Chalkboard... you know, the one I DIY'ed out of plywood? See what I'm talking about HERE.
