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!

28 January 2012 Journal Page

Above is a two page spread in my Wanderlust Journal. I took the focal image and cut off her head ("Alice style!") as I wanted to use her hands the most. There are lots of layers of paper, tape and journaling here.

My Mom and cousin, Andrea are in town until Friday. I picked them up this afternoon at LAX. After they got settled at the hotel, we drove around West Hollywood, Hollywood and Glendale. I pointed out various sites to them, "We used to see Tim Burton and Lisa Marie shopping at Virgin Records late at night!" "Hollywood and Vine is there!" "Barney's Beanery is over there-say hi to Jim and Janis!", etc... We had fun.

Tomorrow they are going to the Craig Ferguson show and I'm taking Tristan to his ortho appointment. I'm not sure who has the better deal on that one: me trekking to a dentist or them standing in line for several hours on Fairfax.

Quick reminder, I'm teaching my "Beautiful Life" journal *this* Friday at Zinnia in So Pasadena from 11:30-3:30. The sample is in store and online. Catch it now folks while you still can...
