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!

In this five hour workshop, you will create your own unique journal from scratch. We’ll start by digging deep into my fabric bag and picking out yummy fabrics for the cover. After we cover our book, we’ll bind it using a fun and easy stitch! Then, we’ll dive onto the pages learning new mixed media painting and collage techniques. Learn how use your journal to document and record and also as a tool and as a reference guide. Learn how fun, easy and relaxing it is to work in your journal daily. You’ll become addicted in a good way! This class is filled with a plethora of ideas to get you working in your journal every day!

Supply list: Scissors, small selection of favorite collage ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of waxed paper, roll of paper towels, permanent black inkpad, container to hold water, 3 1" brushes to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes)

Do you ever teach the Altered Photos class online? I'm on the East Coast so can't attend a "live one." Thanks!

Hi Sandra
I don't have any plans at the moment to offer my in person workshops as online workshops ;)

Where are you on the East Coast?
