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!

Unfinished Pages from my Cracking Myself Open Journal


I don't like to tear work in progress (WIP) pages out of my journals. I try to finish them as best as I can and move on. For some reason, I stopped working in this journal before the above pages were finished and just moved on to a new book. I thought that I'd share these WIP pages with you. 

Unlike some other artists, I prefer to leave my books as is once I've moved on. I don't like reworking old pages (but am always utterly amazed and fascinated by other artists who do.) I won't rework the books but would be open to making color copies of the pages and reworking the copies in other ways in new journals and art.


Thanks for being a part of my journey.

There is SO much potential in each page individually (not necessarily as a 2 page spread)!
When I received my packet of goodies, you included an unfinished page, so I'm sure anyone would appreciate that, however, you create such wonderful things, I vote for re-creating each page and turning them into something new! I now have a huge collection of your pages that I return to over and over for inspiration!
