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!

Pen Love: JetPens Order Review

JetPens has started up their program again where they send select artists a $25 gift certificate. After much debate, I finally broke down and ordered the above pens:

-My absolute favorite of the bunch. I definitely plan on ordering more of these. I like the fine line and love the color. Writes smooth. Quite yummy.

-Another good pen that I would probably order in a few more colors. I like the extra fine, felt tip. The pen flows and feels good in your hand. LOVE the color.

-It's okay. It's not a bad pen. It's an inexpensive alternative to my favorite brush pen, Pentel's Pocket Brush Pen. My view? Save your pennies for the Pentel pen. It's a darker black and you can replace the cartridges.

-I've been lusting after these pens for awhile now. For a watercolor brush pen, they are *very* nice. Considering that I don't really do watercolor, I don't know why I wanted these so badly (just being honest.) The pens are nice as they blend, flow and move smoothly across the page. You can also stamp with them (color your rubber stamp like we did "back in the early days of stamping" and stamp away.) If you're looking for a good watercolor brush pen, this is it. For the kind of art that I do, I don't know how often I'll be reaching for them.


Interested in a pen from Jetpens? I'd love to hear your suggestions for what I should order next month. Leave a comment below!

I had a chuckle over "back in the early days"...it's true! The Hi-Tech Maica .4mm pens are Kathy's favorites.
