Step 4: Paint a pattern on your chipboard star. To get dots, dip your pencil with a new eraser in the paint and dab the paint on your star. Originally, I painted dots on the chipboard 4 also, but decided it liked it better just blue.

I also ended up covering these in blue paint. It seemed like the patterned pieces blended in to the background a lot.
