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 was kind enough to send me a $25 gift certificate to try out several new pens! (Thanks, JetPens!)

I can't pick a favorite as I love them all for different reasons! The Morning Glory Mach Pen II .04 in black is smooth and the ink just flows (I need more of these! Lucky for me it does come in an assortment of colors). The Pentel Fude Touch Sign Pen in pink is FUN to write with and I am VERY tempted to get these in other colors. I am in love with the hi tec .05 candy colored pens. They are a fine point so some folks might not like them but I enjoy journaling, doodling and making marks with the finer tip pens especially in colors like these! 

I am looking forward to experimenting more with the pens in my journal. I haven't painted over any of them but I did run a dry finger over them and they didn't smear. I ran a slightly damp finger over the pens right away and they smeared a little but since I'm using these with mostly dry mediums, they'll be fine!

Who doesn't love a new pen (especially if it's pink!?)
