Hia Kelly,
I joined the blog hop seeing it on Sharon Thomlinson's blog - which I love and would highly recommend. I also came accross a number of really inspiring blogs but really liked this one
I love the colours she uses and the expression she has in her work, real freedom. Hope this constitutes entry!!! I followed you too :)

Christianne Teixeira said...

Hi Kelly, I joined the blog hop invited by Christine ( An Unusual Girl named Christine)´s blog - which I love and recommend (http://viewsbychris.blogspot.com/). I followed you too. Warm hugs, Chris

Butterfly Works said...

You are a generous soul...thanks for having the drawing.....

I love your blog because you are so selfless and always giving credit to all the wonderful blogs you find......

So glad I found you....

Phoenix Peacock said...

I think it is how I found you... does that count?!

Also Ingrid Dijkers, #218. Her journaling is amazing and so inspiring. It is much different than most art journalist pages out in blogland.

Deborah said...

As a fellow believer I will have to say that I am WAY inspired by your blog, Kelly, and no, I'm not brown-nosing LOL! I sure would like to have that book though!

Phoenix Peacock said...

Oh and Creative Carmelina #105 just updated today with a decoupage project that I am loving. It came out so chic. I am always inspired by people who can see the potential in discarded items!

Julia Christie said...

Hi Kelly, Thanks for your visit and for the sweet comment. I am so inspired by Rebecca Anthony too! She is amazing! I love detail work and every thing she posts is so full of it.

I actually really like the face you did a couple posts ago! I think its great.

Looking forward to following your art.


Diane said...

Hi Kelly, First of all--thank you so much for starting this blog hop-isn't it amazing how many talented artists are out there and such a wide variety?!
Okay, I'm already a follower,but a blog that I'd like to mention is this one:
Joji's blog--I love her use of color and what she paints. She's full of inspiration, and her art always makes me smile!

Laura Pallatin said...

I think this is such a fun idea! I'm having a ball traveling around and viewing all the wonderful blogs. I hadn't heard of Art Journaling before I read your blog, so I'd say you've been pretty inspirational for me. I have done some altered books and added text, both written and pasted, so maybe I've done some art journaling? Anyway, it puts together so many things I love!

Laura Pallatin said...

I'm not sure if the comment I tried to leave worked... So, at the risk of looking silly, I'll do it again. I had not heard of art journaling before I found your blog, so you've been inspirational for me. I have done altered books with words along with photos and stuff. So, maybe I've done art journaling when I didn't know it. :) Anyway, thanks for your energy and the bloghop. I just love it!

Lorraine said...

Ok, I just fell in love with Lisa Lectura's blog: llcreations.blogspot.com! I just gotta start art journalling. I can't figure out what is the best medium. Altered books, spiral notebooks... I'm at a loss. But, that won't stop me now that I'm motivated. :)

Hi Kelly! You are a huge inspiration to me in many ways, but if I need to pick someone else, I love #52 Art du Jour by Martha Lever at marthalever.blogspot.com. I love how colorful, and layered and free her work is.

Creative Mish said...

Well I got through the first 100 :) my top ones are #46 - The Bliss Factory. #52. Art du jour - Love the calligraphy. #75 - Karen Cannon - Such cute whimsical faces. #80 - Love is my Religion. #93 Sanda's hobby blog.

Wow! So much talent out there!

Anna Rosa Designs said...

Hi Kelly,
I've just been blog hopping and came across your very creative blogspot.
I've become a follower!
I've just got a mention from Amazon about this book and i'd love to win it. Oh bliss!

An'Angelia Thompson said...

I've had a great time following this blog hop! One of the blogs I started following from the hop is #34 Bohemian Shadows. Her free spirt and art style are very appealing to me. I'm also a big fan of yours, Kelly. You blog is one of the first that I found when I started blogging, and I think it's where I also found the blog hop! Thanks for all the inspiration!

Susan HP said...

Love your work, and am a follower.
I have so, so, so enjoyed the blog hop & have to admit that each & every blog I've looked at has inspired me. So much talent out there. I just find myself awed over & over!
If I have to choose, I always find myself going back to #76 (...at the Shores), #90 (shabby chic bohemian) and #120.

ArtfulLee Designed said...

So many fabulous blogs to choose from but these are ones I keep going back to
I love and follow your blog Kelly #1 because you are so inspiring and generous.

#236 Journal Artista because of her bright colours and generous sharing spirit

#105 Creative Carmelina because her blog is such a visual feast and it is full of ideas

I am still going through the list. They are all so inspiring
