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!

July 15th Classes at Guadalupe's Fun Rubber Stamps in Santa Fe, New Mexico

 

I'm SUPER excited to announce that I will be returning to teach at Guadalupe's Fun Rubber Stamps in Santa Fe, New Mexico on Wednesday, July 15th! The samples are below and will be in the store in mid May. If you have any questions, please email me. To sign up, you can contact the store. I hope to see YOU there!

I will be teaching two classes:

followed by

Moments of Me  

 
 
The Painted Book: An Exploration in Layers

By popular demand, I'm teaching a brand new mixed media class. Roll up your sleeves, don your aprons and prepare to get messy! We'll explore a variety of mediums including watercolor, gouache, and much, much more. Create richly painted pages which you will assemble into a canvas covered book. Learn new ways of exploring color and layering in this unique workshop.

Supply list: Apron, tacky glue, scissors, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of waxed paper, roll of paper towels, permanent black inkpad, and 1" brush to paint and glue (I like chip or bristle brushes).


 
Moments of Me 

Spend four hours creating a uniquely constructed journal made entirely by your own hands. After we make the journal, we will spend the rest of the class learning a myriad of new ideas for self expression and creativity upon its pages. Learn new ideas for art journaling, collage, composition, design and much, much more. I absolutely loved working in this journal and I guarantee that you will, too!

Supply list: scissors, small selection of favorite collage ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black ink pad,  1" brush to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes), a few of your favorite glue sticks,
roll of waxed paper or an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.) 
 
I hope to see you there!
