About Me

My photo
Hi I'm Clare, I live in the South West of England in the seaside town of Torquay. I adore playing with inks, paints and generally getting messy. It is the calm place which fits in between my hectic life whilst working as an outreach support worker, looking after my son, daughter, foster son and hubby. Not forgetting our gorgeous springer spaniel, Suzi.

From this.....................to this!

Well as we all know it's that time of year when pound signs start appearing before our eyes with the daunting thought of christmas looming.  I was sat last night thinking I really could do with some new stamps (stamps are like shoes, too many is never enough) and thought to myself I cannot buy anymore stash until after christmas.  With not much on the t.v. I decided to find out my sketch pad and have a go at creating something of my own.

So I drew this........................

And I ended up with this.  I photocopied the original image onto some card and then masked off the toadstool and inked in a background.  I coloured the toadstool with promarkers and made some flowers out of some prints I did on my gelli plate.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my blog.  Please leave a comment I would love to hear your comments.
