Art Journal


I am taking my second on-line class with Kelly Kilmer. My friend Barbara has taken numerous in-person classes with her and helps to make these on-line classes more personal. Even without that I am loving what and how Kelly teaches. This class is Journey Within: Guide to Unlocking Your Creativity Within.
We started out by gutting and then rebinding a hardcover book. That's mine on top decorated with duct tape, wall paper and punched paper.

Here's the spine. It's amazing how easy this all is when you have a wonderful teacher.
Here's the inside cover with more paper and tape and the first page waiting for journaling and other pen work.

 I tend to get side-tracked easily but I'm steadily working on this journal and will share more over time. In the meantime, go get to know Kelly and her wonderful journal pages and classes.
