In 2010, I saw a chalkboard speech bubble sign and I thought it was the most brilliant thing I’ve ever seen. I cut my own out of wood, put a couple coats of chalkboard paint on it, and our Christmas cards were unique (at least to our circle of friends.) The chalkboard sign craze has taken off since then, but that doesn’t make it any less fun to do!
We used it for our 2012 Valentine’s card, and as a prop for a little photo booth at our 2013 Moving Away Party.
If you don’t have a sign, you can use something like PicMonkey to make your own thought bubbles and add them to pictures.
Or write your words directly on the sidewalk and insert a cute baby.
If you don’t have a baby around, chickens work nicely as well.
This month’s Photographer’s Circle theme was “bubbles” – though I must give my children credit for stretching my mind to include the the speech and thought bubbles!
Please visit photographer Erin Nisi to see her interpretation of the theme…. and be ready for some beautiful images.
