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!

Folded Out

Here are the last few pages folded out. This book is living at The Great American Stamp Store in Connecticut until late June when I teach the class there!

Spending this afternoon tearing a lot of paper for my East Coast Classes. Slowly but surely it will get done. I always like the deckle edge look as much as possible. I don't know if my Mom's mailman is going to like me when I ship all of this paper to Massachusetts next week!

Speaking of upcoming classes, Saturday's class in Fremont is almost sold out. Don't wait too long as space is limited. I'm really looking forward to teaching several new classes there.

Folks have asked about the paper that I'm using lately. I buy from Kelly Paper (no affiliation!) My favorite paper is still the 140 Neenah Exact Index (Neenah bought out the Wausau paper mills.) I've been using Accent Opaque Digital Cover Stock in various heavy weights. It's difficult for me to order the Neenah Paper as Kelly Paper wants me to buy a case and I just don't have the room (tiny apartment) to store that much paper. It's also heavy as hell. Accent Opaque Cover is a good substitute and now it's available in a variety of different heavy weights.
