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!

Packing for the Plane

I've been a busy bee packing all day! Luckily all of my class supplies fit in my big Crop in Style XXL bag. 48 lbs of goodies!

Above is the stuff I'll be lugging (I mean carrying) on the plane as a carry-on. From left to right starting at the top, you'll see:

Stencils (mostly from Craters Workshop)
Eagle Creek Pack it Cube full of pens
Tape, tape and more tape
Staz-on pad in black
New Hero Arts Printers Type set
Dry rag for gluing and wiping off excess glue as I burnish
Coccoina glue stick
Foil (I'm in a sparkly kind of mood but without the vampires 'cause vampires don't sparkle. Ahem.)
An extra small bag that fits a lot of the little things (I don't know why I didn't think of this before)
A catalog for gluing
My double sided Eagle Creek cube that holds all of my collage stuff
My journal

What's missing from this bag are my books. I'm still trying to decide what to bring.

Ever since I was little, I've always brought things to do. This will keep me busy, sane and happy.

Curious: what medium do you use with the stencils when you are traveling?

I use pens and markers with the stencils. I used to use paint but not recently.
