Unique and creative ways to let words tell your story.
blueChickadee is owned and managed by Julie Whaley; a wife, a mother of three girls, an artist, a creator, a crafter, a runner, a woman who loves Jesus.
Creativity is my passion and great design is my outlet. As a professional designer with over 15 years of experience, I strive to find the voice and essence in everything I work on. Whether its a custom painting or a lemonade stand banner for my girls, I bring an eye for detail and execution to every project.
I began my shop to create a unique and original way of bringing special words to life. It began with hand-painted canvases to create artwork of any size that is worthy of hanging on your walls. blueChickadee now also offers digital downloads and reclaimed wood signs to express your soul. I hope you enjoy them.
All designs are created in Illustrator then transferred to canvas/wood to be hand painted and sealed. For a more affordable solution, instant digital downloads are now available.
I am a perfectionist at heart and will create your artwork with as much love as the ones hanging in my own home.

How do I download my file?
Files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. You will see a confirmation message through Etsy and a link to "View your files." Click and continue to your downloads page and find your new artwork available to download.
What kind of file will I receive?
Each download will be a 300dpi (high resolution) CMYK JPEG. If you do not specify a size when you order, the file will be the standard 8x10 dimension. This resolution will be sufficient to print a clean, crisp image at the defined size. If you prefer a PDF, it can be emailed to you after payment is confirmed. If you need a specific size or file type, let me know when ordering.
What is the best way to print my artwork?
The printer that is used will ultimately determine the quality of your print. I recommend using a matte finish card stock or photo paper if printing at home. Be aware, colors can vary on-screen and on printers. For best results, use an online print service like Shutterfly.com.
How do I make my print look awesome?
If you want to brighten up a black/white print, consider framing it with a color mat or brightly colored unique frame. Make a bold statement with a group of 4 frames in a square. Place photos in the others and your digital file from blueChickadee as the focal point. Consider smaller prints framed to sit on the bathroom counter as a cheerful reminder each morning.
Why do a print instead of a painted canvas?
My passion began with hand painted canvases. I love the paint, the texture, the freedom. After my shop was open, I noticed that I was not in the right price point for many of my customers. We all like to change things up in our homes. With the printables, you can change your colors or themes for a very low cost. The printables make the artwork available to you immediately and that is perfect for those last minute gift ideas.
HAND PAINTED CANVAS and WOOD SIGNS:
All artwork is hand-painted and unique. Traditional sizes are 24 x 12, 12 x 12, or 24 x 18 inches. All prices and shipping costs are set to accommodate these sizes. If a larger size is requested, the cost of the canvas and the shipping box will be passed on to the buyer.
Custom orders are always welcome! Specify the words, size and color and blueChickadee will create it.
