Chalked Backgrounds

lightingtheway chalk.JPG (26823 bytes)A month ago my friend Diana gave me a beautiful card matted with a piece of background paper that she created using chalks! It was so beautiful and I just had to learn how. Did you know that you can create your own beautiful background paper using just chalk and a chalk eraser?! I have always enjoyed coloring with chalks, but this is a fun new way to use them. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to do. Here’s how!

Chalk Eraser


1. Rub a cotton ball on the chalk to pick up the color.

2. Rub the chalk all over the cardstock to get a nice rich, even background.

3. Use the chalk eraser to erase away the chalk in the design you choose. On the sample card on my web site, a plaid pattern was created simply by erasing a straight line! You could get creative and make swirls, checks, even write messages!
