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!

My Latest Journal





I gutted a hard cover book for my latest journal. I didn't do anything special to it other than I removed the pages and sewed new ones in. I added a photo to the cover and a Buddha charm. I'm almost done with this one already (I started it August 30th) but I'll be sharing all of the pages here on my blog with you.

I'm all prepped and ready for my workshops in Northern California! If you see a redhead with the music blaring (probably this or this), singing at the top of her lungs, it's probably me. There's still room in the workshops. Here's a link to some of my favorite places in Berkeley and San Francisco.

My next few posts will be while I'm on the road!

Love this one!

Just out of curiosity - why replace the pages instead of just altering on top of them?

@Merrick thanks. I have done both. It depends on my mood. I wanted to sew pages in with a certain stitch with this book, so that's what I did.

Interesting -- I was really just curious.
