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!

April 3, 2011 journal page

I was so caught up in the journal page that I totally forgot to take a before and after picture. I made the above page on the right in one sitting. It's composed of many layers: rub-ons, tissue paper, background paper, focal image, transparency, tape, journaling, etc... (Thank you, Tracy, for the quote!)

I am almost done with all of my Frenzy Stamper prep work. I need to get gel medium and print out handouts. I spent most of today cutting paper and board. Looking forward to teaching the classes, all five of them are brand new!! People are always shocked when I tell them that I have over 400 classes. I love it, though!! There's a thrill of discovery and an exhilarated feeling when you take your favorite materials and push them in new and different ways.

I can't remember whose blog I found this on (I apologize). I have long dreamed of a script typewriter. Prices are insane, though! Here's a link to a free script/cursive typewriter font. How fun is this?!?!?

I can so relate the new page. Especially here in Colorado with the iffy spring weather - let me OUT! Lori from Art Camp for Women.
