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!

Hi Kelly,

I'm so excited that you are teaching in Westlake! Eeeee! It will be my first time taking one of your classes and I am so jazzed! I know that it will be fabulous. :)

I stopped by the store the other day for the first time and it's such a cute space, and the owner and her daughter were so nice and welcoming.

I have a supply list question - I'd prefer to not have to buy extra supplies for the class, and would like to know if my substitutions would work that day...

- I have a rubber brayer (Speedball). Would that work in place of a bone folder? Not sure what the bone folder will be used for - for the journal construction?

- I have a plastic ruler. Does it have to be metal with a cork back?

- I have a Vivid brand ink pad which is semi-waterproof and I use it all the time. Will this work?

Hi Shanta,

Looking forward to meeting you!

I will have a few extra supplies on hand. Don't worry about an ink pad if you don't have one. I prefer the Staz-on pad as it will stamp on slick surfaces such as tape, transparencies, etc... I have extras.

I use a metal ruler (with or without cork back) to tear my paper for collage. I will try to remember to bring a couple of extras to share. If down the road you do want to get one, get them from the dollar store or office supply store as they are much cheaper there than at the art supply store.

I use a bone folder to fold and score paper as well as to burnish/transfer rub-ons to the page. I will have a couple of extra in my bag to share. You get a better fold with the bone folder than with a brayer.

If you have ANY Questions, please email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Looking forward to meeting you and teaching at Banana Rose! :)

Hey Kelly,

Thanks so much for your reply and explanations. I'll try and pick up the ruler, bone folder, and ink pad. I've always wanted a permanent ink pad, but was concerned about drying time. I'm not too patient when it comes to art pages drying before I can work again haha. I work in multiple journals for this very reason LOL. :)

See you soon!

Shanta, I am the EXACT same way. What I use has to dry NOW. Staz-on dries fast. I work one journal at a time so it has to cooperate with my NOWWW schedule.

I'll have a 2 extra bone folders and rulers so don't worry about it! :)
