Using Paint Shop Pro - Open new canvas 600 x 600 pixels 300 pixels per inch

On copy layer
Go to freehand selection tool - draw a narrow random selection quite close to the edge
all the way around your canvas to select the edge to be chalked.

Delete inner selection. (leaving edge on canvas) Select None.

Adjust Blur Gaussian Blur 13
Adjust add / remove noise - add noise - uniform - monochrome - 17%
On Chalk Layer Adjust /Sharpen and change layer property to Lighten.
