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!

19 August 2013 Journal Page

I love coloring parts of my pages in. Oh, how it brings me back, calms me down and makes me focus on the present moment. I used Glaze and Souffle pens to color in the circle design. I try to let each color dry before I start the next layer. If you're using a Rapidosketch to outline any work done with a Glaze or Souffle pen, make sure that pen work is dry before you use your fine tip Rapidosketch. I also like to have scratch paper nearby in case my markers and pens start to misbehave. Usually a quick mark made on scrap paper seems to help move the ink along.

Beautiful page! I love your coloring, doodles, etc - and totally agree, that's the part that brings my focus in, is far better than Calgon!

Over the past couple of years I have integrated far more drawing and painting into my pages. There are so many "doodle" books available now and I think it is a movement in meditation and helps balance or counteract our crazy world. It feels so good.
