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.

Thanks for stopping by!

3 December Journal Page

The little picture of Tristan was printed out using my Polaroid Pogo printer. It's fun. I'm not sure if I'd really recommend paying a ton of money for it. I got mine on amazon for $29 (when I am linking this now it is listed at less than $22.). Their price keeps going up and down on it. Another tip is to check out the different colors. The black one is usually the cheapest (vs the pink or red one). Also ebay has had package deals for them from time to time. I can't wait to use it more this holiday season! It even works with my cellphone (bluetooth) which is FUN. I bought my case for it on ebay for $10.

oh, Hello Friend's lovely package exchange revisited. Great ideas for wrapping gifts!

Brian K said...

Okidoki me not so much a Christmassy cute kinda guy... so why am I so in love with your current layout? It is way cool! I am sooo taking one of your classes in 2010!!! Hmmm what to take??? Any suggestions???

Dawn said...

Beautiful journal page! You will talk me into that pogo printer yet. I love the idea of being able to put photos in my journal right away. I'll have to have one before my next trip.

MJ said...

How's the quality of the print for the pogo?

Kelly Kilmer said...

MJ- It's like a polaroid but smaller. It's not bad but it's not perfect. ;)

Martha-I hope you get it!!!

Thank you so much Dawn!!!

Huge thanks Brian! I'm the same way. lol. I've been using Christmassy stuff but not in the typical way. I'll have my classes for early 2010 listed on my blog this week i hope!! You can email me if you have ANY questions!!! There are lots of new ones!!

Great page, I love it and Tristan has grown up fast. Thanks for all the links, esp. the one to Time with the 50 blogs, that one is great to browse through.

Loving it! It really evokes Christmas for me, and not in that saccharine over-commercialized Campbell's Condensed Christmas kind of way. Like Brian said, not Christmassy-cute, just capturing the simple warmth and happy hubub of the season, you know?

And speaking of classes, I got myself signed up for the Prompted class and the Kawaii Book class at Ink About It. I was wondering, for the "Journal (with paper “heavy” enough to use with acrylics, etc…)" listed in the materials, would a moleskine work? I've never used one before, but I don't think I really have any journals stashed away with sturdy pages in it. Everyone always gives me regular lined-paper journals.

Kelly Kilmer said...

Thanks Betsi for the kind words!! ;)

Looking forward to seeing you at Ink About It!!!!

Sure! You can use a moleskine. I'll also have some extra cardstock on hand if anyone needs it. If you even wanted to, you can take the paper, fold it in half and use it in your Kawaii book! Just a thought ;) I've used a moleskine several times and they do take paint. If you have any questions please feel free to email me EGorey99 at sbcglobal dot net

See you soon!

It seems to me that your journal pages have shifted a little in your color, texture and style choices in the last few weeks. Is it so or am I imagining? I love it though!
Anyways, I recommend to all to take the taped journal class! I love my taped journal. It was so much fun!!
