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!

19 January 2011 Journal Page

I swear that blogger has gone completely bonkers. It keeps posting my photos upside down when they are right side up. I keep having to fix them. I apologize!

My new online class, Journey of You (or J.O.Y.) is in full swing. I love seeing what people create with the prompts, techniques and ideas. I love when people post to the group, sharing their own pages and how they worked things out on the page, expressing what worked and what didn't work for them. I always say that I have the BEST students and I MEAN IT!

I loved using bits and pieces of rub ons on this page. I love the pink WAIT in the bottom right corner and the frame around the blue girl. I love the act of unfolding onto the pages. My pages wouldn't feel like me if I didn't journal and use my own writing to express what I feel needs to be said on the pages. My journals are visual documents of me and how I view the world around me. Isn't that what a journal should be? A document of your own personal musings and self expressions.

Happy Weekend, folks!

J.O.Y. has been tremendous - you've done such a good job setting it up! Hopefully, I'll post something soon.

I was really hoping to see you at Zinnia today, but I guess it wasn't in the stars. We'll keep trying! LOL.

Thanks, Robin for the kind words. I'm sorry about the class. Hopefully next time. :)
