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!

The Before Page...

I thought I'd show you a little teaser of the before and after. I'll show you how I finished the page tomorrow. I started by picking papers that I liked, moving them around and gluing them down.

Blog Love:

Fabric Paper Tape Tutorial (though my little mind says, why not just cut it up and glue it down instead of taking the time to make it into tape...I buy tape for the patterns and not to buy tape just to buy tape, if that makes sense! Yes, there are some interesting possibilities here with a DIY tape, don't get me wrong. I am just one of the folks that some may call l a z y at times.)

Henna Love

Paper Garland Tutorial Love

Ideal Bookshelves

Who wouldn't embrace the possibility of a 4 day work week in the U.S.!

Films Watched:
The Maltese Falcon 1931 (pre-code! First film adaptation)
Satan Met A Lady (second film adaptation of The Maltese Falcon)
Out Of The Past
Where Danger Lives

Great page. I think I have the same image. Great links too, I love the henna tattos, I've always wanted one but have never found anyone doing any.

Excuse me, but WHERE did we buy the paper that makes up the heart on your page, with all those amazing spools of thread? I think you could photocopy the whole page and reprint it as scrapbook paper and sell it.

Love the page and thanks for the links! I love this heart, sew
unique ;-D

Nice idea, making your own tape... especially when you can't actually get it anywhere (or just don't want to spend $10 on a roll of tape!).

But you know what would be so much easier? taking that piece of fabric and GLUING IT DOWN! LOL! Could never get the hang of watercolour tape (it's so finicky) so I wouldn't want to expose myself to it needlessly. :D

Melle, that's exactly how I felt! Glue the fabric down. Cut it up as you want it and glue that stuff down ;)

Yup, I didn't understand why one would glue the fabric to the tape....... maybe to make it more portable? Like to use when you don't have glue? Pretty though.....
