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!

The Evolution of a Page


http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-jbOJWusMxfk/VqW7DWuskeI/AAAAAAABWgE/h0lVmwsBXUY/s1600/20160124_135054-799699.jpg 


I posted the above shot to the blog the other day and the shot below to Instagram last night. They're both still work in progress shots but it's always interesting to me how a page evolves, pushing and pulling with the layers. I wasn't feeling 100% myself as I worked on both so that also intrigues me (how emotion and well being affect our artwork.) On a somewhat related note, I've stopped drinking my usual black unsweetened iced tea and caffeine out of my daily routine to see if that helps change how I feel. I'll have to up my art making!

I'm getting ready to teach two classes this weekend. On Saturday, I'll be at Pnina's Studio in San Diego teaching A Few of My Favorite Things: Paper, Paint and Pen: Text Edition and on Sunday, I'll be teaching Painted Connections at Scrapbooking Forever (a new to me store) in Westlake Village. I hope to see you there!

Hi, Kelly - I love the progression and evolution of your pages from time to time - it encourages me to press forward and take risks!
