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!

25 November 2016 Journal Pages

After sorting through my collage material, I'm down to two Eagle Creek Pack-it Cube bags. I could go down to just one but since I like to sort my materials by things that I want to use now and things that I want to stash away for later, this is how it will stay for now. I also don't like the collage material to be too overwhelming. Some folks have asked and the only other way that I sort my collage ephemera is by whether I would use it as a focal image or a background. I can't sort by color or theme or whatever as I found out a long time ago that it doesn't work for me. 

All of the above doesn't include the heavy bag of collage ephemera that resides for my classes and lives in the trunk of my car. I like to keep that just for use in classes and rarely do I ever sort through it except to clean it out. 

How do you store your collage materials? What works best for you?

I just use shoe and boot size plastic boxes from Walmart. They stack nicely, and I can separate my art and paper supplies.
