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!

January 13 journal page

My new favorite blog, Pronoun Trouble. I'm very partial to the author. Well written. Well researched. It flows and moves like a film. Honest. Totally totally the author-100%. Listening to the interview posted on it now.


I am thinking of writing a love letter to the two new colors of Sakura's Glaze pens...the red deserves it's own special lust letter. Yes, it's that worthy. I can't stop using it since it came in the mail yesterday. Sakura's new red glaze pen spells L O V E. Put them on your want list now. Scoop them up in droves so that they MAKE MORE NEW COLORS. I frigging love their pens.

Do you detailing with your glaze
or do you write words (as in journaling)?

I tried the souffle and was frustrated with the dry time. I also tried writing and it smeared being a lefty.

I wish I could use them to color in a Dover coloring book but the liquid pools out in a bigger blob than I anticipated.

I wanted to thank you for showing us glimpses of your journals and for sharing great new products to try and use - especially your pen reviews and these overlays.

I am in love.

Thank you - and I better go thank Rice for her podcast that made me wander over this way!

Tasha-I write with the pens, draw, doodle, and do other things with them too!

The drying time isn't that bad. They take longer because they're supposed to dry "raised" the slower you write, the more "embossed" they become.

Use them in your coloring book with your fingers!!! Seriously-color in one area and then rub the color in with your fingers. It's so cool!!!

Maybe I am slow or impatient or both. What is the other new color besides red?

Sandy said...

Great page, where did you find the new colors? Anywhere online?

Sharyn said...

Where oh where did you get the new colors?
Beautiful page BTW

Raine said...

Inquiring minds want to know... what is the other new color?!?!?!?

Seth said...

Love the page on the right. And that flip-out is such a great effect.
