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!

Classes in Whitman, MA December 28th

I'm very excited to announce that in addition to my classes at Ink About It in Westford, MA, I will also be teaching at Susan's studio in Whitman on Wednesday, December 28th.

I will be teaching two workshops on Wednesday, December 28, 2011:

Serenity Pages from 10 to 2

followed by Expressions from 2:30-6:30

Please see below for a slideshow of each class as well as a full description.
Please note, payments for the Whitman, MA workshop must be made in advance. Due to the fact that the teacher is traveling here from Southern California and must prep for the workshops in advance, there are no cancellations allowed. No refunds. In the event of a severe snowstorm in the Whitman, MA area, the class may be canceled and money refunded. You may send someone else in your place if you are unable to attend the workshop, or you will receive a kit for the class. You can either pay via paypal (see button below) or send a check or money order. Once you've signed up for the workshop, you will be sent the address and directions to the workshop location. If you have ANY questions you can email me. I will also give you my cell phone number so you contact me.

Wednesday, Dec 28th
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Serenity Pages

In this workshop you will construct a unique journal. You will “paint” with paper learning composition and design techniques as you create your pages. Learn how to combine a variety of mixed media including paper, tape, transparencies, stickers, stencils and much more.

You will learn tons of new mixed media tips, tricks and techniques as you work hands creating your own Serenity Pages.

Supply list: Scissors, small selection of favorite collage ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of waxed paper, roll of paper towels, permanent black inkpad, container to hold water, 1" brushes to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes), a few of your favorite glue sticks




Followed by:

from 2:30-6:30

Expressions

What story will your book hold? Express yourself by creating a hand bound journal covered in luscious handmade paper. Create pages that fold out and hide your secrets or uniquely display your treasures. You will learn how to free your artistic self upon the pages of this book, creating a multitude of rich, colorful pages as you work. You will be learning not only how to make the book from scratch but also how to create a multitude of layered, “paper painted” pages.
