There are some items in my craftroom that rarely see the light of day, yet I'm not sure why. One example is my Craf-T Decorating Chalks. I really like them and am always happy with the results, yet I rarely think about them when I'm working on a layout.
I'm trying to make an effort to use my chalks. The last time I used them was for this card. This time I used a similar technique, chalking over letters from a Heidi Swapp mask alphabet. I removed the mask, then used a black pen to outline the letters to make them pop. Quick and easy!
How do you use chalks? Any hints or tricks?

I love using chalks! I haven't in ages either... maybe I need to bust them out again!! :) Great layout Cindy!!ReplyDelete
love how this layout turned out. I have not used chalks this way, I will have to! I do like using chalks, I sometimes forget about them for a while, then have fun with them again. I love to use them to create soft color around my layout, over stamped images and my favorite is for changing the color of my journaling strips to better match my layout.ReplyDelete
