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.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the many layers....

I received this lovely card in the mail (thank you again Michelle!) and wanted to attach it to my journal page. I ran tape along the front left edge of it so that the tape was hanging half off/half on the card. I butted the left edge of the card up against the left side of the page and folded the tape on over to the previous page. I repeated it again with tape on the back of the card so that there is a piece of tape on the front and a piece of tape on the back. It gets rid of any extra stickiness that might poke through, plus it just looks neat. Just a fun simple thing you can do to attach things to your journal...

After yesterday's post you'd think I have enough books, right? Clearly not.

"When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes" - Erasmus

We trekked on over to Borders on 3rd street (which is closing in 7 days). It was a mess and we didn't find anything there. Off to Ciao Cristina's for supper (I can't tell you enough how much we love their pizza and home made potato chips). Last stop was Iliad Bookshop, where we can lose ourselves for hours in the aisles. I picked up a couple of books for collage and couldn't leave without a copy of Eduardo Galeano's Upside Down (which I promptly sat down and started reading last night).
