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!

8 June 2014 Journal Page



I started a new journal the other day. I've done two pages so far and I'm eager to crack it open right now. It's big and I'll be sharing it on the blog very soon (there are work in progress shots on Instagram.) I love the possibility with a new journal, a new page. Yes, I get stuck at times but I don't stress or worry about it. I make. I push. I fail. I succeed and make more. That's all we can do as artists and human beings.

Hey, Girl! when you say 'it's big' - how big IS that? I always work in at least 8-1/2 x 11, because my hands are so huge, and I've always thought the size of my pages is why it takes 3 months to finish one layout a la Kelly Kilmer style (ha! - but seriously). Anyway, I'm curious what 'big' means to you. Also - I see your pages transitioning, somehow ... it's very difficult for me to put words to, but having followed you/your blog and work for almost a decade now, I definitely see it. A simplification, I think, which is also somehow amplifying the layouts. Love it.

Toni, it's at least 14+" tall. :) big means different things. I worked small because I was on the road for several months. Every journal I make, I try to do in a way that is different than what I have done before.
