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!

Book Review: Lou Ann Granger's With Love For the Journey

These days, a book about art journaling has to be pretty unique in order for it to catch my eye and make a home on my shelf. I can't stop singing the praises of Lou Ann Granger's With Love for the Journey enough.  It is passionate, engaging, enriching and inspiring!

I fell in love with the book when I immediately noticed that faux edge journal look as I flipped through my copy. Anyone who puts this much though and effort into a published book definitely piques my interest. I always love and appreciate when people share their art journals. As you see Lou Ann's art journal pages and read her words, you feel like you are walking side by side with the artist as she travels, documents, explores and records her worldwide journeys. 

Even if you are unable to travel, this book will take you far with prompts, ideas and tips that will have you reaching for your own art journal. As one of my favorite actors likes to say, "You don't have to take my word for it." The Scream Online reviews the book here.
