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!

A Closer Look at October 2012 Classes

OCTOBER

12th Stampin from the Heart L.A. Sanctuary 11:30-3:30 


Sanctuary Journal
Work big, work fast (but not too fast) and work across the fold in this book created and bound by you! We’ll start by assembling this journal with a new and unique stitch! We’ll spread out across the page, creating luscious two page spreads learning new collage techniques as we work. Combine a multitude of ephemera and your own style to create uniquely blended, layered and richly colored, personal journal 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


13th Zinnia So Pasadena La Petite Muse 11-3 


La Petite Muse
With your own hands and in your own style, construct a small, personal journal completely from scratch. You’ll start by choosing your own handmade and decorative paper to use as the cover and as the inside pages! Create your own unique book sewn by your own hands. After constructing the book, you will then learn a multitude of new collage techniques for working on the pages. This was one of my favorite journals to work in and I hope it will become one of yours!

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.

Lettering a la Kelly Style
This is NOT a calligraphy class! It is unlike any other journaling or pen class that I’ve ever taught! You will learn simple, fun and exciting ways to write and journal on your pages. You will explore a myriad of pens as you work and learn how to add your own hand to your journal pages. You’ll also be exploring collage in this class so it’s actually two classes in one! This is a class with both structure (guided exercises) as well as some play time. You’ll never be bored and you’ll be looking at your journal pages in whole new ways after this class. 
Supply list: journal (or the instructor will have paper for you to work on), 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" brush to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes) or a few of your favorite glue sticks
