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!

4 November 2011 Journal Page

It's a busy week so this is a short post!

I played around with my Sakura Glaze and Souffle Pens along with a Crafters' Workshop stencil. I pulled color from the focal image using the Sakura pens to make it pop some more.

I am enjoying posting before and after shots on the blog. I have some more to show you this week.

One trick with the Glaze and Souffle pens, if the color is too light when you put your first coat down, let it dry completely and then layer a second (or even third) coat on top. The trick is really to let the pen work dry completely before moving on.

When on a monthly pilgrimage to San Antonio I stopped in Michaels and asked for Souffle pens. The young man handed me a souffle pan!

I can see you were not using one of those. Very interesting page.

I love this page and the henna hand is gorgeous. I never even thought to try that with the pens. Thanks for the info.
