What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for almost twenty years now. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Year!!

Here's my new journal:Always put your contact information on the inside cover page in case something happens to your book!!!
First page:
My Prompt A Day group is in full swing!! I'm having fun seeing what others do with the ideas and prompts. I hope others are having fun with it so far! It's not to late to subscribe to the group.

David, Tristan and I used our gift certificate from my parents last night and went to the Cheesecake Factory to celebrate our Anniversary. We usually only go there once a year and I always feel like I'm waddling out of there afterwards. It was fun (though the hostess needs to learn the difference between 15 minutes and 45 minutes. ;)).

We also watched the digitally remastered definitive Final Cut of Blade Runner (I've been waiting years to see this!! LOVED it) and listened to the revelry in West Hollywood at midnight.

Your journal looks great Kelly. I'm off to start on prompt 1 and take a look at the second one. Then to get some photos uploaded. I'm going to be busy tonight.

Happy New Year, m'dear! I love this new journal! Is the black lace image a stamp? Tape? Would you mind sharing your source if it is? Thanks!

The tape comes from oboiler. It's one of the most expensive rolls I've ever ordered and it took FOREVER to arrive. They ship the damn things via media mail:

Wow-they lowered the price on that tape! My mistake! When I ordered it, it was $15 a roll.

Is your journal an altered book - meaning do you gesso and glue pages together before you start journaling? or is it a bought journal?

I love your journaling!

Kelly Kilmer said...

I make all of my journals from hand. I gutted the book and sewed new pages in. I do not gesso the pages beforehand unless I want texture :)
Thanks!!
Kelly
