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!

My Latest Journal Cover

I'm two pages in on this journal. (I'll be showing you those pages soon.) I decided that I'd work on the cover tonight. I'm not in love with it yet, but that's okay. I have time to work on it. I stress to my students that your journal is your place to experiment and make a mess. I'll post the cover when I'm done with it.

What are you working on?

I love how you arent stressing and just letting it take you on a journey of its own. wonderful that you live by your own teachings... its a rare.
I can't wait to see what you end up doing with the cover, or to see the inside pages!

I actually love this cover--just as it is. I'm working on a hand page right now, too. I traced my hand about five years ago and I use it as a template now and then. Have a great teaching weekend.

I am working on my Journey of You journal this holiday weekend!

Howdy Kelly,

I really like the goldy-ness of your cover - the texture is VERY intriguing. The face and hand really draw me in too.

This week I'm making my own decorative masking tapes. They look fabulous! Way over the top!

Have you tried making decorative tapes?

Peace,
