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 more than twenty years. 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.

24 January 2012 Journal Page

One of my favorite things to do with rub-ons is to color them in using gel pens (Sakura glaze or souffle or Pilot's lattes.) Not only does it look cool but more importantly, it's very meditative and gives me time to process my thoughts and feelings as I work on a page.

Great page. I've never thought about coloring my rub ons.

Not sure what you mean Kelly? Do you draw over them so that you can't see them at all or just kind of?

Hey, Kelly--I got my CocoIro pens from JetPens and wouldn't you know it, I can't figure out how to put them together!! How do you spell idiot?? C-a-t-h-y, that's how!! I wrote an e-mail to the company asking if I had the right pen body and refills!! And for instructions!! Maybe if I like them I'll ask them to pre-assemble them next time. Anyways, I love your page and I never thought about coloring rub-ons either. Cool idea!!

Kelly Kilmer said...

No, you're not an idiot. Fyi, the bottom of the pen sticks out at the bottom.

Unscrew the pen body.

Drop the pen refill into it and screw the pen refill into the body.

I don't throw away the extra clear cap that comes with the refill "just in case"...but you don't need it as long as you have the pen body. It is ONLY if you use the refill alone without a body.

Cap it when not in use!

Lmk if you need any more help. ;)

Thank you both for the kind words!
