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!

Finished WIP journal pages

Here are the finished pages that I posted the other day. I have a whole journal that I want to post. I am enjoying blogging from my phone at the moment! I promise I will post the journal from last month asap!

Life is quiet but busy lately. I've been planning and prepping classes. In between that and everything else I've been finding time to bake a few yummy goodies. Someone posted a recipe for tomato pie that I would love to try. I made cinnamon sugar pull apart bread that was delicious. It took 3 hours of prep time (plus time spent overnight in the fridge) and it was all gone in 10 minutes. People say, "nom nom nom" is obnoxious (okay, my sister tells me it is), but I swear that's how the boys sounded as they devoured it.

Here's the recipe I used:

The pages above were started in some of my recent classes. I always work alongside students as I teach. It helps me to demonstrate as well as giving the students a chance to see how I process and fix things as I go. I also like to show how moving items around the page in even the most slightest of ways can change the entire look and feel. A lot of people tend to plop their focal in or near the middle. Every time you approach a page try asking yourself what one thing can I attempt to do different this time? See what happens.
