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!

July 15th Classes at Guadalupe's Fun Rubber Stamps in Santa Fe, New Mexico

 

I will be teaching two classes:



A Trace of Me: The Journey Starts Here
Tuesday, July 15, 9AM-1PM


You will create a landscape format journal constructed of different sized papers. We are going to be pushing deep with new techniques and exercises in this class going beyond the traditional, "Today I did this" Create a rich journal made by your own hands using your favorite materials to document your journey. We'll be focusing on new collage, journal and writing techniques in this class.

My workshops are always process-based learning while creating a unique product. I am well known for not traveling light and bring a large variety of supplies including (but not limited to) collage material, rubber stamps, stencils, pens, markers, tape and more.

Supply list: Scissors, small selection of favorite collage ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of waxed paper, roll of paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black inkpad, 1" brush to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes), a few of your favorite glue sticks, an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)



Pieces of Me: Self Expression with Collage
Tuesday, July 15, 2-4PM


What do you get when you combine paper, pens, stencils, stickers, and stamps with new techniques in composition, design, color and means of self expression together on the page? You get truly unique and personal pages of art. Learn techniques that are applicable to ANY art form. Yes, we'll be "painting with paper" (collage) but learning art techniques that can be used and adapted to whatever art you want to work on. You will learn several new techniques in using collage as a means of self expression.

that is such a fun store-have been there several times when visiting NM. If the jewelry place is still across the hall they have some nice earrings at a good price-my fave pair came from there~
