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!

New Pens from JetPens!


JetPens sent me a $25 gift certificate to use in their store. I thought I'd try out a new case along with some uniballs in different colors and tip sizes. Here's what I bought:

Lihit Lab Teffa Pen Case - Book Style - Brown

Uni-ball Signo Broad UM-153 Gel Ink Pen - Dark Blue Ink

Uni-ball Signo (DX) UM-151 Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Emerald Green

Uni-ball Signo (DX) UM-151 Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Pink

Uni-ball Signo (DX) UM-151 Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Lime Green

Uni-ball Signo (DX) UM-151 Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Golden Yellow

Here's the pens on plain, white paper:


Here are the pens on dried acrylic paint and gouache (ALWAYS make sure that your page is dry first as wet paint or acrylic medium can mess up a pen!):

They will also write on washi tape (not anything plasticy) but you need to make sure that they are given plenty of drying time.




Thanks again, Jetpens!

Martha-

I LOVE that tape.

I ordered mine from Washimatta. If you're ordering a lot of tape ($50 or more), her prices are the BEST even when you factor in shipping. Also, when ordering from Japan, most rolls are 15 mm (as opposed to 10 mm in the U.S.)

In the U.S., I would also recommend Cute Tape:

Various vendors on etsy also have it under graffiti tape.

I have it and LOVE IT. It is frickin' awesome and layers WONDERFULLY. I hope that they make more of them.

Hope things are well!

I like drawing with pens and markers. The cheap ones I have tend to bleed or go dry at the most inconvenient times. Would these types of pens be good for small scale drawing?
