For Carolyn and anyone else interested, I hope I can find a way to illustrate
with words, what the kids did.

If we have a 12x18 piece of paper, then the name is written large across the
paper (First name). Naturally there will be space on the top, bottom and
sides. They now add bands of colored lines which encircle the contour of the
name. We start with the 1st band. Let's say it is turquoise.
They can make it scallopped or pointed or broken or whatever. It can be thin
or wide. It can have other types of lines inside the band of turquoise ( like
a dotted line). The band of turquoise can also break up into other colors
like stripes. Let them get creative with it. They will continue in this way
using all varietes of lineand color.Some kids did block letters and polka-dots
and stripes in the letters. The best ones have very little white paper
showing. If you like, email your address ti me and I'll send you a photo.
