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!

Where do you find inspiration?

Do you see what I see?

I see color.

I see pattern.

I see texture.

I see line.

I see shape.

I see translating this imagery onto my journal pages using any of the following:


Keep your eyes open. You never know where or when inspiration will strike. Don't forget to look down, too.

I also see the house of my aunt in a little village in the Polish mountains - she had such textiles on the floor, which were store-bought, but she also had some that she crocheted from old clothes cut into strips.
So many places to find inspiration! (Like your blog, which I read whenever a new post appears :)

And don't forget to look up! I see texture and patterns more than I realized, now that I do art journaling. I have always loved color and design...I get inspiration from these and from the sky and nature. My love of taking walks has grown because I take my camera and translate nture's beauty into handcarved stamps, journal pages, fabric hunts...♥Kathy
