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!

Los Angeles Summer 2015 Classes

 

Summer is here and I am looking forward to teaching two brand new classes at the Book Arts Los Angeles Center (at the location where Stampin From the Heart used to be.)

These are my ONLY local classes for July and August. 

July 5th: An Artist's Playground
August 16th: A Gypsy Heart Journal
BookArtsLA 11720 Washington Place Los Angeles, CA 90066
 
Each class is four hours in length. 
 
Class time is Noon to 4 p.m. 
 
Cancellation policy: Students are allowed to cancel 72 hours (3 days) before the class. After that, you can send someone else in your place, transfer to another one of my classes or receive a kit.
The class fee is $85 per person which includes a vast array of mediums and materials to complete the necessary project. It is well known that I do not travel light to any of my classes. I will be bringing such things as:
  • all materials necessary to complete the project (handmade paper, decorative paper, board, glue, etc...)
  • bookbinding supplies (thread, awl, needles)
  • rubber stamps 
  • ink pads 
  • decorative tape
  • stencils
  • pens and markers
  • gel medium
  • collage ephemera and much, much more.
I do not travel light to my classes at all!

If you have a question or if there are problems with the paypal button, please email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Classes




 




Sunday, July 5th:
The Artist's Playground- Learn how to combine your precious bits of ephemera into a truly one of a kind artist's journal. Create a playground of self expression and discovery. You will learn how to step back and see things in your artwork that you haven't noticed before.
I have been working on this class for over two years now and am very eager to share it with you. You will be inspired in this class.
Supply list:  scissors, a selection of favorite collage ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black ink pad (if you have one),  1" brush to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes) OR a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer), 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.)






Sunday, August 16th:
A Gypsy Heart- Construct a rich, lusciously layered portrait of you in journal form by bringing together color, text and images onto the page. You will make visually stunning and authentic pages, all contained in a hardcover book bound by your own hands. You will leave class with several pages completed along with new ideas for the rest of your book.
