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!

11 April 2013 Journal Page

One of the many things that I loved about working in this journal was being able to use a wide variety of images. I didn't go out of my way to find the perfect size image to fit the smaller pages. If it was large and I wanted to use it, I did. 

One of the things that some of my regular students laugh about is my repeated use of the phrase, "Make it work." I was saying it before Tim Gunn (sorry, Tim!) and I'm sure I'm not the only one to ever use it (LOL!!!) Seriously, it's your journal. If you are itching to use something, USE IT! TRY IT! It's not brain surgery. You're not building a space ship. You don't like it? Push yourself to make it better until you can't push any more. Then move along. You've got a whole book to fill. 

If you're interested in signing up for my NYC classes at The Ink Pad next month, there's been some changes with the schedule. I will now be teaching one class Saturday afternoon (3-7) and TWO classes on Sunday. You can find more information here.  I have a detailed blog post with samples and descriptions here. 

A quick reminder that I have two classes scheduled this month at Stampin from the Heart. The first, joie de vivre is coming up this Sunday! Then I have a two day class May 31st and June 1st. More info here. Samples are in the store and I hope to see you there!
