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!

Last week I was driving home with my husband when I spotted a new store window with an insane display. I drove around the block, parked in front, jumped out and snapped photos. The next day I cracked open my journal to draw some of the images and play with a new color combination. The other day I went to an art opening. A couple of days later I had these tiny little repetitive marks made in my journal. It took me a minute to remember where I had seen something like them. 

We are surrounded by inspiration. A line on the sidewalk. Colors in a garden. Patterns in a fashion magazine. Text on a movie poster. Ideas that spark and fuel our creativity.

How will you use that spark today?

Wow, I dearly wish that I could see the world through your eyes. I guess it takes a lifetime of practice.

You are absolutely right, Kelly. Inspiration and miracles are all around us if we are open.

Lottie, The more you keep your eyes open, the more you will see. :) It's all about how you see things. We're all lifelong learners and we need to remember that. :)

Fran, :)

Hi Kelly, How did you do the tears? Were they already in the picture? Did you enhance them?
