Thursday, June 29, 2017


Anna Komenda, a wife and mother of 3 children, lives in Poland and enjoys scrap books among other things.  She was delighted to have an opportunity to try Chalkola Chalk Markers.

Supplies Required:

All you need is a:

  • Chalkola chalk markers
  • 5 photos from your app shots
  • Sheet of white paper
  • Plastic cover
  • Heidi Swapp color shine
  • Glue
  • Scissor
  • Small brush
  • Scrapbooking stickers

Anna is going to show how she makes a colorful, fun layout using Chalkola chalk markers and other materials.

set of five photos

She has a set of five photos she got from an app, depicting one person with five different expressions and five different animal attributes.

type that holds documents

She already has a sheet of white paper so all she needs is a plastic cover, the type that holds documents.

positions the photos

Anna positions the photos on the paper to make sure she knows where everything is going to go.

background of her composition

Chalkola chalk markers are going to make the background of her composition.

Chalkola markers

Anna uses purple, pink, orange, blue, and green Chalkola markers to make strips of color above each individual photo.

plastic overlay

Now she has her plastic overlay just as she wants it.

plastic to the white sheet of paper

She attaches the plastic to the white sheet of paper.

photo strip

Now that she has a stripe for each photo she can position the photo strip and continue her creation.


She cuts each photo carefully from the array.

colored paper

Anna chooses colored paper with which to back each photo.

similar color to the stripe

The photos will be backed by a similar color to the stripe above them.  This will contribute to the continuity of color and make the layout appear more professional.


Many people have a favorite theme and Anna’s is animals.  Just like animals in the wild, Chalkola has vivid colors that attract attention.

position the photos

It’s important to Anna to position the photos just right so that what she adds later will have the most impact.

textured paper

If you look closely, you’ll see that Anna has chosen textured paper to back the photos with.  It adds another dimension to her layout and makes it more interesting.

matching colors

Sometimes matching colors will make more of an impact that choosing a contrasting one.

type of layout

Chalkola’s bright, vibrant colors make any type of layout special.

glues the individual photos

Anna glues the individual photos to their backing.

virtually odor free

One of the great things about Chalkola chalk markers is that you can work with them all day.  Other markers have unpleasant odors but Chalkola chalk markers are virtually odor free.

color shine

These are bottles of Heidi Swapp color shine that Anna will use to add some color to the white part of her layout.

small brush

She uses a small brush to dip into the paint and splash it onto the white paper.  It is the small touches like these splatters that will bring the whole creation to life.

supply of stickers

Anna has an impressive supply of stickers that include shapes, letters, animals, and other categories.  She uses stickers to illustrate her ideas and inspire emotion in those that enjoy her art and scrapbooking.

title of the layout

The title of the layout, “Inner Animal” will start on the left side and finish on the right.  The letters are carefully positioned to be visible but allow plenty of room for other embellishments.

types of stickers

Several types of stickers are used to convey a feeling of fun and playfulness.

central idea

When Anna is done with her layout it is very busy yet focused on a central idea.  It entertains the viewer but sticks closely to the central theme and keeps the focus on the photographs.

Although Anna did not use a lot of Chalkola colors in her layout, the chalk markers’ brilliant shades attract attention while keeping the focus on the photos.  Chalkola chalk markers can be used in so many different ways!
