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!

18 March 2010 journal page

I used my Polaroid Pogo to take a picture of one of my old journal covers (the eyes) for the top page.

Teaching at Zinnia today! (Can you tell I'm excited?!?! I love Zinnia!)

Blog Love-
I found ArtnLight via Swirly Girl
Jane and Jeane have new stencils, birds! Here's what Jeane did with them.
Fine Little Day is having a sponsor giveaway here.
Psst, my favorite magazine (Uppercase) is having a sale this weekend. Don't say I didn't ever tell you anything. ;)

Sunday morning at 10 a.m. PST on KPFK in L.A. (90.7 FM), Blase Bonpane airs his last interview with Howard Zinn from December 2009. You can listen to it on the web, too.

Still cleaning. Dropped 8 bags of clothes and toys off at NCJW on Fairfax Friday.

Taylor-nice try.

Lori-can the Easter bunny come visit me?

Jane-
I can one up that and bring the issues or an issue with me if I see you this month in AZ?

I love the magazine. Graphically and artistically speaking, it is GORGEOUS. Well thought out articles accompanied by scrumptious eye candy photos are yummy. It's not your run of the mill typical eye candy froo froo stuff. It packs a lot of substance in each and every issue about a variety of topics and subjects. The last issue had an article on axes. Now who in the hell would ever think that an ax could be of interest to someone like me? But the accompanying pictures and article made it an eye opener and well worth reading! :D

If you go to the tumblr part of their site, you can get an EYEdea (ha ha ha) of what kind of goodies they feature and what they are about. I find it to be the MOST inspiring magazine on the market (and I buy alot of $15 magazines from a certain publisher).

LOL I haven't been posting much stuff 'to buy' lately 'cause I really haven't bought anything, but Uppercase is the only magazine that I subscribe to and it is worth every flipping penny.

I seriously LOVE these journal pages!! I'm going to check out "Uppercase" right now. Sounds wonderful! In the meantime, I've posted a link to a tutorial in my last blog post for making very quick and easy nested scalloped circles and rings without die cuts or a die cutter...thinking this is something you might use...
