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!

Classes in Los Angeles at the BookArtsLA Center!

I am very excited to announce that I will be teaching at the Book Arts Los Angeles Center (at the location where Stampin From the Heart used to be) starting in August. I recently visited the new space and it is gorgeous. There is plenty of space to work and an amazing amount of light in the studio. I am very eager to teach there.

BookArtsLA
11720 Washington Place
Los Angeles, CA 90066

Each class is four hours in length. 

Class time is Noon to 4 p.m.

The class fee is $85 per person which includes a vast array of mediums and materials to complete the necessary project. It is well known that I do not travel light to any of my classes. I will be bringing such things as:

  • all materials necessary to complete the project (handmade paper, decorative paper, board, glue, etc...)
  • bookbinding supplies (thread, awl, needles)
  • rubber stamps 
  • ink pads 
  • decorative tape
  • stencils
  • pens and markers
  • gel medium
  • collage ephemera and much, much more.
I do not travel light to my classes at all!

My first two classes there are as followed:

Sunday, August 24th
Discovering My Truths: Lessons in Bravery








Sunday, September  28th  
Journey Into the Self

Please note if these buttons don't work or if you have questions, please email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net.

Please note that I am handling all of the sign-ups (not BALA.)

Space is limited. 


I am also scheduled to teach there:

October 19th
November 2nd
December 14th (tentative)

Sunday, August 24th
Discovering My Truths: Lessons in Bravery


There's always something delightful about holding a book in your hands and turning the pages. Imagine if that book was created entirely by your own hands. Prepare to make magic! You will explore luscious layers of paper, pen, expressions of the self and much, much more in this four hour workshop.



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.)
 

Sunday, September  28th
Journey Into the Self
In this four hour journey, you will create a bound book with pages attached that fold up, out and down. You will then dive in and learn new techniques for collage, art journaling, mixed media and self expression. Explore painting with paper; layering your letters and images; color secrets and much, much more. I guarantee that you will love working in this journal as much as I did!
