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!

Essence of Me: Tape Journal Revised and Revisited

Several years ago (2004, I think it was) I taught a class that I simply called, "The Tape Journal." It was extremely popular and it introduced people to the wonderful world of tape in all forms. A few months ago I decided to revise the class, make it a bit smaller and bring it back again in a new form. I'll be teaching it at various locations across the U.S.  

My favorite tapes, hands down, continue to be REAL washi tape (not that knock off crap that everyone calls washi) and the skinny, transparent deco tapes printed with text. I love layering and combining various tapes and paper to make new pages. They really are very versatile (not to mention highly addicting!) 

Here's my UPDATED infamous post on TAPE in all forms.

I'm very happy to be teaching at Word is Art Gallery in Los Angeles again this SATURDAY (yes, a special day!) I'll be teaching my Luscious Layers class. It's all collage, baby! YES, I'll be bringing tape! If you want to bring a journal to work in you can, but we'll be working on scrapbooking paper and revising it. Questions? Please email me at EGorey99 AT sbcglobal DOT net. To sign up, please go here. I hope to see you there!

If the object of promoting yourself is meant to be POSITIVE, as I assume it is, you may want to consider the fact that "infamous" doesn't mean what you appear to think it means.
