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!

Work in Progress (WIP) Journal Page

Here's a peek at a journal page that I finished today. I used a combination of scrapbook papers, book and magazine pages. I'll show you the finished page soon.

I spent some time today sorting through my collage ephemera bag. I like to go through my collage stuff every now and then, figuring out what I want to work with now and putting away what I don't feel like using. It's like a kid rotating her toys, but it works for me. I store my current paper ephemera in an Eagle Creek shoe cube. I put my focal images on the top, then background paper, scrapbook paper and transparencies last (these are cut in half, along with the scrapbook paper).

I'm having a very hard time coming to grip with tomorrow being June 1st. I keep thinking, "How did that happen?" I'm teaching my Content: an Artist's Life Journal this Friday at Zinnia. Looking forward to it! More info here:

Happy Tuesday!

Great page. I really need to order one of those cubes, I keep forgetting. I'm having a hard time too. This year is just flying by or I'm not doing enough every day.
