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!

The new journal...

I've done about 8 pages in here so far. I'll share them with you over the next few days.
I sound like a nagging Mom, but always remember to put your contact information on the inside
front cover (see where the photo is under "From the Private Library", that's got my cell phone, email and contact info written on there.) You never know what may happen to your book so just in case someone finds it and knows it needs to go back home, they know where to send it!!

I'll be showing the new pages over the next few days, so stay tuned! :)

Got my glue and my goodies for my classes this weekend! I'm roaring and ready to go!!! Stampers Warehouse, Danville, Northern California, HERE I COME!!

Your journals are so awesome... I have a question though. What are you using for backgrounds that has script words on it but is see through. Like on the right side of the cover?

Kelly Kilmer said...

Mouseybrat said...

Gorgeous journal, Kelly. Is this an altered book or truly a "journal" made from book covers? I'm always so interested and intrigued by your creations. Great work on this one, as always!
Peace & Love,
~Barb~

Barb, It's an altered book in the sense that I've gutted it completely yet will be using portions of the pages on the new pages that I've sewn in. It's a journal in the sense that it's where all of my passions-both painting, collageing and journaling will be poured out onto the pages ;O)
