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 more than twenty years. 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!

15 December 2012 Journal Page

One of the things that you'll notice on my pages is that I love to layer my writing. On this page here, I wrote a lot about sadness and layered on top of the writing with a blue Sakura Souffle pen using a Coffee Break Design stencil

It takes a lot of patience and practice to work with some gel pens and stencils but it's one of my favorite things to do. If the pen bleeds, I let it dry and then outline it with a finer point pen in a different color. It then looks like I did it on purpose. 

 I like using stencils with pens a lot more than I do with paint or sprays. I find it to be very meditative. It really slows you down and I love it.
