Blank Journal Makeover: Chalkola Chalk Marker Review #1

Chalkola journal book

I got a surprize email from the Chalkola Company wanting to gift me some craft supplies to tryout and see if I would recommend them to my readers.  I never have tried Chalk marker pens and definitely had a lot of fun using them!  I made three upcycling projects using the pens and give them two thumbs up.


phrases journal start

I purchased this blank journal at a garage sale last summer and decided this would be my first Chalkola marker project.

The tags were so old they wouldn’t budge.  That’s when I used Ronsonol Lighter Fuel. The liquid doesn’t leave a residue or stain and will lift off any sticker without hurting the surface.  Since I planned to paint the covers of the book with black chalk board paint I had to get the stickers off.


phrases painting cover

I covered the front and back with a nice layer of black chalk board paint and let it dry overnight.

The chalk markers are very juicy and I LOVE the opaque coverage….when I’m using acyrlic paint pens sometimes you need several coats and even then the colors don’t pop on a black background. I LOVE THE POP OF COLOR!

The price of the set of chalk markers pictured above costs $16.95.

The Chalkola company is happy to provide my readers with a 10% discount using this code: WHIMZIVILLE10

This blank journal is now going to contain my phrases and sayings I compulsively collect.  I wanted to share some of  my favorites with you to click and print.
