About Me

My photo
Hi I'm Clare, and as you can probably tell by my blog name I love to craft. It is a hobby of mine which I fit in my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant in a primary school, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

A little play with mixed media and Dylusions.

A little midweek blog from me not something i usually do but i have made a couple of mixed media cavases that I wanted to share with you.



I was inspired to have a go at making my own after watching a fabulous you tube video by Marta Lapowska http://youtu.be/JbF4DjqDEmo which you can watch by clicking on the link.




The butterfly stamp is one from a set Rynn Designs which I purchased on a visit to the NEC (see i am working my way through my unused stash). In both projects i used Dylusion inks which are available from Bee Crafty along with the alternative circles stencil to use with the texture paste.

I would like to enter into the following challenge http://designsbyryn.blogspot.ca/2015/05/may-customer-creation-challenge.html

On the first project i used Dylusions pomegranate seed, for the above project i used crushed grape. I finished off both canvases with Treasure Gold guilding wax.
I have had lots of enjoyment making these and it has certainly opened my mind to more mixed media ideas.

Thank you for taking the time to have a look at my blog. Remember to hit the follow button above, comments are always greatfully received below.

Happy crafting,
