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.

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

Thanks for stopping by!

A Glimpse Into a Beautiful Necessity


I've posted a couple of pages from this journal before but I haven't posted ALL of the pages until now. Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be posting them to my blog for you to enjoy. This little book went across the country with me (on a plane, train and a car or two) I really enjoyed working in it. I mostly worked from a ziploc bag loaded with a glue stick, a few favorite pens and a small selection of collage ephemera. Yes, the book opens on two ends. It's called a dos-a-dos book.

Hi, Kelly -- I just love the soft colors in your journal. They're gorgeous. Do you use watercolor crayons to color in the backgrounds before you add the collage ephemera? Thanks so much.

Kelly Kilmer said...

Thanks, Krissy. If I use watercolor crayons, I tend to collage first and then add them.

Flow is my absolute favorite magazine. I'm so glad they are going international now. I've sent more then one copy to oversea friends to show them what they were missing. ;-)

I. Bought a copy of Flow and was absolutely knocked out by it. I called my girlfriend and told her to buy it and she loved it too. It is a real treasure.
