I got this idea from Pinterest. It was recommended to use black butcher paper, which I found at Hobby Lobby, but it had a shine to it, not really sure how much I like that. I experimented with white chalk, white paint pens, white lead pencils and white oil pastel stick. Each gave it's own finish.

|I found black drawing paper at Dick Blicks and really liked using the chalk pencils on it. Probably my favorite. I made some holiday sign artwork to frame using this application.|
|I used the black butcher paper with the oil pastel stick for my gift wrap. It was fun and I will use it, again and again for gift wrap! The gift "getters" loved it.|
