You just have to see the New DCWV Chalkboard Stack!!! It's just the most fun new paper. If you like to doodle, you must have this stack. It has a slight texture and special surface that allows you to use chalk just like a chalkboard, but better because it wipes off very nicely. I have a couple of tips for using chalks on this paper though. If your chalk is new or has been handled alot, you will need to rough the end a bit before drawing. You could just scribble on a piece of paper, but I have a sanding block and it works fantastic and quick.
My first thought was "How cool! I can make something altered or a card with chalk, but in my scrapbook I don't want chalk that will dust off easily." Ok, not a problem, you can use lots of cool things on this. I like using watercolor pencils the best but I have many more colors in my watercolor crayons so that's what I used for my page today. I think watercolor pencils would be better because you can do more detailed doodling. I also used the new Recollections "Midnight Magic" stack by DCWV since I was using Halloween photos. This is my black Halloween tree and wreath. My decorations are sort of themed with Nightmare before Christmas, so I drew Jack and Zero. The little orange frame is actually from the chipboard for the Animal Crackers collection from DCWV.
Oh one more thing - If you use watercolor pencils, you can use a paper towel or qtip with water to erase if you mess up! I did it ALOT on this page. LOL! If you draw on papers with those you cant erase, but this is a really cool surface that doesn't get damaged with a bit of water. Give it a try!
