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!

Yes! I used another of Jane and Jeane's stencils on the above page.

Some Blog Love-
Color over at Little Brown Pen
Speaking of scarves, oh how very much I love these especially the ones with the scissors..oh, but wait, what about the ones with the birdcages...
Pam Sussman's post on Rue Vavin
Peter Kuper's Alicia en el PaĆ­s de las Maravillas
Crazy Japanese Beauty Gadgets over at From Japan with Love
A Small Collection of Things over at Christine Clemmensen

Books Devoured, I mean read-
Stefano Benni's Margherita Dolce Vita (I read it in two nights and give it two very big thumbs up)
Next up, I'm deciding between One Day A Year or The Days of Abandonment. Yes, I am hoping to read every book by Europa Editions!

Films Viewed-
2001: A Space Odyssey and all of the extras on the DVD

Great page. Did you use the stencil on a piece of paper and cut it out or is it painted and stuck in the journal? I love how you added the hands under the shape too.

Great links and love the scarves too. I always find great Etsy shops to save from your blog links too.

Stefano Benni's book sounds really good. I've saved it on Amazon. I'd never heard of these books, I know I've probably read about them here but just never "got" what you meant. They sound interesting. I think it's great that you plan to read them all. Thanks for posting about them. I love finding new sources of great books.

Thanks Sandy for the kind words!

The stencil is made using a piece of handmade paper. I didn't do anything to it other then trace the stencil and cut it out..then glue it and journal on it ;)
