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!

Mysterious alphabet/number set

I haven't forgotten about the contest winner. It's coming! Stay tuned. I'm still playing catch up.

The above picture is from one of my oldest rubber stamp alphabet and number sets. I bought it on ebay over ten years ago. It's several sets of rubber sheets and long wooden pegs with alphabet and numbers on the end. I have no idea what it originally was, but I loved it and bought the set to use in my art. I thought that the inside of the box was cool and that you might enjoy seeing it.

Yesterday's post was about magazines. Tonight, I tore up my last two Frankie magazines. I also cut up the latest Somerset Studio. I saved one article in the lettering section, Danita's art and the entire Melange section was pretty cool. I bought the magazine specifically for the article on Sarah Ahearn Bellemare, whose work I adore.

I love Sarah's work also and I can't wait for her book to be released!

I'm so glad that I'm not the only one to cut up my Somersets! It took me a long time, but I pretty much do it with great abandond now!
