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!

More Finished Pages from 16th and 18th of April

I had fun doing these pages. I don't love the first page (not happy with my journaling...I didn't say everything that I wanted to say) but I LOVE the second page. I've always been a huge fan of partial rub-ons. I have a huge box that I bought years ago in Canada at Ruby Dog (LOVE that store) in Vancouver. I hoard them and use every bit on the sheet. I like the contrast of the pink on brown. I also like how simple the page is.

I finished working on my handmade journals to sell. Now I have to take pictures and write descriptions. That takes the most amount of time, well, not really, but it's the thing I like doing the least. At this point, I'm hoping to have them uploaded on Tuesday night around 7 pm PST. I'll let you know if anything changes!!!

Happy Friday!!!!

Howdy,
Your work is very inspiring. really like the variety and layers on your pages.

Recently I've been collecting and using rubons too. When they work right, it's a great affect.

Peace,
LuLu

Great pages. Love the brown paper and the little gold circles you used on the left side. Those popped out at me.

I love these pages, too, Kelly. Your partial rub-ons really do add a lot of depth--I have never done this in my own art journaling. Now I have to try! Thanks. Looking forward to Tuesday night to see your hamemade journals! Maybe I can nab one!! ~Kath
