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. I always have a hard time narrowing down the pens that I wanted to try but here's what I bought this time:

Deleter Manga Ink - 30 ml Bottle - White 2 (Aqueous White-out & Waterproof) (shown in the above photo.) 

I like how thick and opaque the white ink is. I applied it with a brush. It does have a smell to it so those of you who are sensitive to smelly art supplies, fyi! It dried fast (always a bonus in my book) on the magazine paper that I used. I'm looking forward to playing with the ink some more. 

Copic Multiliner Pen - 0.3 mm - 4 Color Set

I'm always a sucker for an extra fine pen in colors that I don't have. I'm not a huge fan of the Copic markers in general but I do like these (especially the colors.) Note how well they work on official washi tape (MT brand) vs. the fake washi (Scotch brand.) Once dry, they're not going anywhere. I rarely use my Copics but I can see me using these more often in an effort to push myself out of my comfort zone and try some new color combinations.

J. Herbin Cleaning Solution for Fountain Pens - 15 ml

I haven't had a moment to try this cleaning solution out yet. As soon as I do, I will report back. Cleaning pens is always at the bottom of my To Do List and I have a pile that need to be cleaned out. I'll let you know what I think of this stuff asap!
