It's Blog Hop Time!!! The Xyron Design Team is blog hopping with Petaloo and Core'dinations all week. Visit the Xyron Blog to see more inspiration from the design team.
For my post featuring Xyron, Core'dinations and Petaloo, I created a Mixed Media Journal. I used my Xyron 9" Creative Station, Chalk Core Core'dinations cardstock, and Petaloo flowers. This was an awesome combination of goodies to play with and a lot of creative fun. Check out my tutorial below.

Step 1: Trim a sheet of Core'dinations Chalk Core cardstock to the size of the cover of journal and apply gesso to the cardstock using a cosmetic sponge. For this this project I used a 6 x 8 mixed media journal that I created a cover for using cardstock and chipboard.
Step 2: Emboss cardstock using a die cut machine and embossing folder.
Core'dinations sanding block is perfect.
Step 4: Rub the excess sand from the cardstock using the Core'dinations cleaning cloth.Xyron 9" Creative Station.
Step 9: Using the Sketch Grid stencil and black paint, randomly transfer image to journal cover. Let dry.
Step 10: Apply gesso to the Petaloo flowers, buttons, and charm and add them to the journal cover as desired with hot glue.
Step 11: Apply black paint randomly to embellishments with finger.
