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!

13 August 2013 Journal Page

One of the things that folks often say in classes is that they have no place to write on their pages. The page above is an example as to how there's ALWAYS room to write! I like to explore my handwriting as I put pen to paper using different colored pens/markers and font styles. Not sure if a pen will work? Try it. If you don't like it, wipe it off before it dries (if you can) or let it dry and go over it with another color pen. My point is that there is always a place to write on your pages. It's just a matter of stepping outside of your comfort zone and asking yourself, "what if?" Remember, it's not art to hang on the wall, it's art in your journal, your safe place to play and explore.

 Less Herger has a great series of blog posts on how to choose an online art journaling course, corporations and art, empty promises and much, much more... Some food for thought.

thanks for the mention. All I want is for people to think about what they are offering and for students to find the best fit possible.

Thanks, Less. I think that's all that any good teacher would want...the best offerings and the best fit for a student as possible.
