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!

5 March 2010 journal pages

Playing around with layering vellum and the like. I sewed a few sheets of vellum randomly into this book and just layering paper, stickers and the like onto the pages.

Teaching this weekend! Looking forward to it.

Blog Love-

I LOVE this post on how she stores her washi tape in a utensil container.

A cute bunny stuffie tutorial over at The Adventures of Blue Girl XO.

Jeane and her unending quest for everything you can do with a stencil.

How did I miss this? National Day of Unplugging.

Films watched lately-
All I Desire
Magnificent Obsession
(yes, we bought a Douglas Sirk boxset. 7 films. $20 at Amoeba. Couldn't leave it there.)

Disturbing article on author Peter Watts being found guilty of "resistance" at a U.S. Border crossing.

Today there are anti-war protests going on in L.A., SF, DC, NY and more. You can click on the image below for more info for the L.A. protest.

LOVE the vellum pages! You continue to amaze me with your neverending ideas.

Jeane Frizzell said...

I love the vellum! What a great idea! You had such great blog love today. :) Aside from the obvious,I loved the tape dispenser and the bunny!

Kelly I cannot believe you sent me to another TAPE place. Good thing I haven't gotten my allowance yet! I spent my last allowance over at Jeane's Etsy shop on stencils...you need to get commissions.

Denver and Boulder don't have any demonstrations - guess it's time to move.

Penney said...

You sewed on the pages! Wahoo! Looks great as always, girlfriend!

Great pages and I have vellum from my scrapbooking stash.

I hope you have lots of fun at your class. I know you will. Lucky students. :)

I think I have that same utensil holder in my drawer for my utensils and I got it at Target. Great idea. I need more tape in order to get the holder. I'm working on that.

I've got my stencils from Jeane and I'm hoping to start using them very soon. I couldn't resist. She's so talented.

I agree with the Unplugging and if I were in LA and had enough energy I would have been marching with them.

I went to Target but ended up getting a clear acrylic utensil tray out of the clearance bin. I like to see what I have. I was wondering if you have ever found or seen anything along the line of vellum that is thinner or more sheer. Need a little more visibility. Thanks.
