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!

Candy! I mean New Tape!

I've been going through tape withdrawal for months. In my travels this summer I was looking for stencils (I found LOTS of those), new books/magazines (for both reading and collage purposes) and TAPE. The tape proved to be quite elusive this summer. I'm not sure if it was because I either already had a lot of the rolls that the stores I was teaching in sold or what the story was. I've been waiting to find something new and different. 

I bought the bottom row of tape first. They're from Freckled Fawn. I like them and I've already used a couple of them in my work. 

The top row arrived yesterday from Paper Plus Cloth on Etsy and I can't stop looking at them. It was like Christmas when that box arrived. I tore it open. I was meeting a friend in the morning for some catching up time (and art journaling) and thankfully, she was a little late as I would've been late because instead of going in the shower and getting ready, I was going through and drooling over the tapes. I've used one of the rolls in my recent work:

I should be cleaning but my art journal (and that tape) is calling to me.

Having recently found Paper Plus Cloth, I believe they have the most beautiful and beautifully curated collection of washi I've seen. Of course one wants it all. If I wait a while, the top choices usually announce themselves. I can so appreciate your delight with new goodies. xo
