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!

Here's a look at the classes in detail:

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



Pocket Planner

In this four hour workshop, we’ll create a little pocket planner that fits in your purse! It’s the perfect size book for every day journaling, collage, list making or to take note of anything memorable or important. We’ll start by creating a book from scratch (with your own hands, learning a super cool and easy binding!) Then, we’ll start to embellish some of the pages so that you won’t be able to resist working on the pages. I loved working in my journal and so will you!

It’s All In The Detail: Exploring Visual Mark Making

Learn how to bring your pages together to create visually stunning and coherent journal pages that you can translate to a variety of art forms. Yes, we’ll be drawing, doodling and coloring in this class, but in FUN, new, and exciting ways! We’ll start by exploring new collage compositions. Then you’ll dive right in and learn how to finish off your pages by adding your own personal and unique touches to add pizzazz to your pages.

Wanderlust 
 
Looks can be deceiving. Create this surprisingly complex looking by quite easy journal with pages that flip and fold up and out. You’ve probably never seen anything like this before! The journal is also small enough to slip into your bag for on the go art journaling (I’ve worked in it on a plane, in a car, etc…) After we construct the journal, we will dive deep onto the pages spilling layers of color, texture, pattern, journaling and more. Walk out with your head spinning full of ideas and inspiration!
