Illustrated Craft Tutorial - How to Chalk Paper

You can find decorating chalks in your local craft store. They are especially designed to use with paper and do not require any fixation. The advantage of such chalks is that they give your paper projects an added dimension. The designs and elements do not look flat anymore. Instead, the paper has the appearance of having been dry brushed. You can also color embossed images.
