Color Chalks

Robin found a small case of unused color chalks in her art supply cabinet so I decided to experiment with them. I'd just bought a new newsprint pad so I thought this would be a good way to break it in. I scanned the chalk drawing, opened it in Photoshop, and applied several filters to duplicate layers, experimented with different blend modes and opacities for the various layers, then added an ancient parchment texture to the background.
