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!

more journal pages...

Last night I was making up some collage grabbags. I don't know what I was thinking, but I accidentally started dividing one of my favorite paper ephemera bags into the packets I was making up. ACK! I realized afterwards that I was missing something. Can we say NUT? I qualify for nut status, now. Officially. I have these tiny miniature activity coloring books that a friend gave me last year (about an inch in size) and ack-I put them in the bags. I managed to find 3 of the 4 in the bags. Anyone else like this? Does anyone else have weird snippets of something that they would call a treasure that others would call total junk or crap?

My online class is going great!! I'm having a ton of fun seeing what others make from the prompts. Very, very very cool pages!! Thanks to everyone who is taking the class!!! I'm still taking sign ups. I have been putting the prompts up a day in advance. I always love seeing how others interpret ideas.

This is how I spent the weekend:
Sitting on the edge of the bed (LOL, I just noticed my hair sticking out in the corner of the photo!! ha ha ha!) with my earphones on, working on all of my sample pages for my online class. I had a blast!!! I spent about 20 hours on art in two days. Uh, yeah, David was still picking up scraps of paper from the bed that night. LOL!!

I once "lost" a small bit of textured white wallpaper that was a treasure to me!!! I never found it by looking for it. Finally found it when I was looking for something else!!! It's the little things that count!!!

Love your journal pages!!! Love your class!!! Just taking a break now before finishing one page.

I lost a bit of Japanese paper lately. It has flying cranes on it and was totally perfect for a piece I'm doing. Maybe it disappeared into one of your grab bags!

Love the latest journal pages. All mine seem to have hearts lately. My way of healing my heart I suppose!
