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!

8 November 2011 Journal Page

I showed you the original page before:
Here's the finished page:
I love layering with paper. Right now, my heart belongs to collage. I am always excited at the possibility of a different outcome and weighing the direction in which to finish off the page. As I tell my students, there isn't a "wrong" way to make a page, only many possibilities and outcomes. It's very interesting when you start to narrow down your choices and see what the page is becoming. I equate it with painting but using paper instead!

I only have a handful of classes left this year. I'm teaching two this weekend in L.A. I'm super excited about this Sunday's class. If you are looking for a class where the main focus IS collage, then get on over to Stampin' From the Heart and sign up for this Sunday's Sacred Place class. We'll spend about 10 minutes making a quick book to hold our work in. The rest of the class will be spent on collage and mixed media techniques. This has been one of my most popular classes and I know that you will love it as much as I do. More here.
