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!

17 August 2013 Journal Page

Home from a good day of teaching at The Word is Art gallery. So thankful to have a spot open up for classes that's so close to where Stampin from the Heart used to be.

Thanks to a bit of permanent glue dots and tape, I was able to attach the vellum (which is always tricky to work with) to the page. I collaged on top of it using a glue stick. The pen work on the vellum is done with a .35 Rapidosketch and Souffle pen (Sakura Glaze, Pilot Latte and most water based paint markers like Sharpie and Molotow also work on vellum, tape and slick surfaces.) If you're not sure if something will work, test it on a scrap piece of paper (or tape, vellum, etc...) before trying it on your actual page. It's what I do with new pens and markers.

hi kelly
Does your rapidograph clog when you outline AFTER writing with the Soufle or Glaze? Mine seems to be really sensitive if I try that. :)

Jan, make sure that your souffle and glaze are totally dry before using your rapidosketch pen. Give it a few minutes.
