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!

19 September 2010 journal page

I usually collage the inside cover, but I loved the liner paper too much, so I left it alone but added my contact info "just in case".
Layers of transparency, paper, tape, journaling and an old label sticker.

I updated my Winter class schedule. I'm teaching two new classes this weekend. You can find more info here. I'll be at Zinnia on Saturday teaching a brand new collage class. On Sunday, I'll be at Stampin From The Heart with my Metamorphosis: Art of Altered Pages class. I hope to see you there!

I have a special story to share with you in tomorrow's blog post. I hope that you check back to read it!

Congrats on the article at TapeSwell! Of course I ended up buying some more tape...since I was already there... See what you've started?!?!?!? Now I LOVE tape! It was bound to happen eventually. I'm really having fun in the journal I made in Whitman. It's turning into my "experiment/experience" journal. (Catchy title, huh? Just came up with it. I like it!)

Things I like (ok, fine, looooove)about Kelly's blog:
Reliability, every day
-there's work to inspire me
-she works better than my google reader
-same style of books and art e.g. the englishman and barron storey must buy
-opens up to other blogs, I would not be aware of otherwise
-the materials list, books list and where to get them (thank you, thank you thank you)

What I don't like about Kelly's blog:
After a lifetime of addiction to traditional (veeeeery expensive) art supplies, now I NEED tape. It's all your fault Kelly.
