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!

Inside Cover of My New Journal

Today was a pretty relaxing day. I answered a few questions about the new online class and did some online work, but not too much (after spending several hours daily online for the last week, I had to get away a bit.) I made pancakes for breakfast and for dinner, honey whole wheat pizza (when I get the recipe to my liking, I'll share! I promise!) I listened to online radio. I did a few pages in my journal. I hung out with Tristan. It's been good today. I've been in my pjs all day and I'm very happy about that! I hope that your weekend was a good one.

So I'm back to playing with mixing media in my journal. I haven't dabbled in the wet stuff in my journal since 2009 (or so.) After more than ten years with painty fingers, I needed a break so I focused exclusively on dry mediums and collage. Now I'm dabbling with the wet stuff again and I'm wondering where it will take me...

I LOVE the colour combinations you used!

Lisa V said...

Yay! I never got to take your classes when you were using paint & I'd love to! :)

Kelly Kilmer said...

Thanks, Kay! They are not normally colors that I gravitate towards but I do try to push myself outside of my color vocabulary every now and then. ;)

Kelly Kilmer said...

Thanks, Lisa!! This will be different than my other painting classes. I have some things I am trying out. I'm excited. :D

Love this.

one reason i'm using watercolor paper in my new art journal is that i love to use watercolors as backgrounds.

Now those are colors I love!! I mostly do the paint thing but am really enjoying the straight collage I have been doing since I started with RITM. I sat down and read every word of TJW pdf on Saturday night and was so psyched I went straight to making a collage. I will make the book, probably after the book I'm in the middle of making, because it looks easy enough for me to get it right!!
