Using Artistic Effects in PowerPoint 2010

Today we are taking a look at how to enhance one of our most popular sets of toolkits, the Chalkboard Doodle and the Flowchart Doodle.  Specifically, we’ll be taking a look at using PowerPoint 2010’s “Artistic Effects” to be able first modify Pictures to match the chalkboard style, and then how to make Graphs and Charts match the chalkboard style.  Are you feeling a bit lost?  Here’s an idea of what we’re going to make:
