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 over seventeen 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!

Part Three of the 10 Minute Art Making Challenge


The timer is set for ten minutes and I'm off with a pen in my hand! I started by writing true across the tape in a permanent black pen. I also realized that I need to re-ink my black Staz-on pad, so I traced over the peace stamp using my .35 black Rapidosketch pen. I stamped the X and O stamps with my hot pink Hero Arts dye based ink pad and then traced around it with the Rapidosketch pen. I added the dashes around the heart. I wanted to alter the paper in the top right corner some more so I traced the edges with metallic markers (I don't love it, but I'm letting it go for now.) Ding! Time's up!

I keep my favorite pens accessible in a small bag. I tend to work from my journal bag so whenever I sit down to create, I have everything that I need at the moment within reach. It works best for me and enables me to get right to making something without having to stress or worry about finding the right supplies and tools when everything that I need is right there.

Thanks for doing the "what I did in 10 minutes" segments. It has inspired me to do the same thing. I actually got a few pages done yesterday!
Aloha, Kate
