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!

Finished journal page from the other day

I finished this page today, the last page in this journal.

I had a lot to say so I decided to journal across the focal image. I like how the image itself obscures some of the writing. I added the journaling last. I more than likely won't go back and add anything else to the page as it says what I want it to say.

I made a new journal today using an old hardcover book and recycled papers. I have a few ideas that I am eager to bounce around in this journal.

One thing I've been thinking about lately, can anyone recommend any tree free paper that they love? I'd appreciate any recommendations!

Hi Kelly!
I visit your blog on pretty much a daily daily basis. I just adore what you create all the time! I have a quick question for you....on average, what size journal do you normally work in? Thank you for your never ending inspiration!!
Warm hugs from Vale :)

Hi Vale,
Thanks for the kind words!
I don't have a standard size that I work in. I like to construct each journal in a different size, shape, style, etc...
I know a few artists who stay pretty uniform with their journals, but the way I work pushes me and gives me a little kick when I need it. :)
