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!

The Classes in Detail:

Telling Your Truth

Create your own unique hardcover journal in this four hour workshop. You’ll assemble and bind a book from scratch picking from a variety of handmade and decorative papers; learn a variety of all new collage and journal exercises designed to get you to open up; and create authentic journal pages that reflect your own thoughts, desires and ideas.

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) or a few of your favorite glue sticks




 


Moments

While we’ll begin this class by creating a stunning portfolio, the main focus on the class is also constructing a set of individualized art journal vision cards. We’ll be creating a small deck of art cards layered with a myriad of collage, pen work and much, much more! These cards can be used for art journaling, travel journaling, scrapbooking, inspiration, vision boards and more! Inspiration at your fingertips!

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!

Connections

With each new book we create, we open ourselves up to a new possibility. We’ll be creating our own wrapped cover journal while exploring the theme of connections (this will be open to your own interpretation.) How do we take our favorite tools and use them to connect our pages together, creating a unified connection that runs throughout the pages of our journals? In this class we will be open to ideas from each other as we work and share our own unique visions of art exploration in the form of multi-layered collage work.

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) or a few of your favorite glue sticks





My Interior Life

A book bound by your own hand is a precious thing but what if it’s also a book that is full of your own visions, thoughts and musings? In this unique workshop, we will be diving onto the pages learning new collage techniques, pen work, layering ideas, journal prompts and how to explore our own personal process of putting ourselves onto paper. You will walk out of class with a bound journal with several completed pages along with techniques and inspiration to fill them all!

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) or a few of your favorite glue sticks







I hope to see YOU there!
