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!

30 August 2017 Journal Page


One of my favorite tools to paint and apply adhesive (mostly gel mediums, tacky glue and the like) is a Catalyst 01 Mini-Blade. My friend, Karen, introduced the tool to me a couple of years ago and I'm so grateful that she did! I haven't had to clean glue from a paint brush since that day.

I love the playful look that comes from using the mini blades to paint with. I've bought a handful of the other shapes but the mini 01 flat blade is my favorite and the one that I reach for the most. I like it better than a credit card and other tools that I've used over the years. It's a different look than a palette knife. I'll load up the edge with paint and just scrape to my heart's content. I'll etch and scratch into wet paint.

I just found out about these "silicone brushes" in the context of a ceramics class I just started taking. They apparently come in all kinds of sizes and shapes. Haven't tried for artwork yet but tapered point ones are great for smoothing clay.
