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!

15 December 2014 Journal Page

One of my favorite lettering tricks is to add text in one color, size or font. Let it dry. Once it's dry, I'll vary the text using a different color, size or font directly on top of it. I'll add text using my own hand most of the time. Sometimes I mix handwritten text with stencils, rubber stamps or rub-on letters. I love playing with my own handwriting when I go to add text! 

Layering letters is a great technique if you think you've made a mistake. I just really like the way it looks. There are lots of lettering tricks out there if you keep your eyes open.

What a brilliant idea. I thought you used rubber stamps or wrote all your text.

@Lottie, 95% of the text on my pages is written by me. I also will incorporate rubber stamps, stencils and rub-ons.
