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 a teaching assistant, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

Clare DT- Swing & Branch

It's the weekend, yay! What a long week it has been! The first week back to school after a holiday always seems the longest so I am thrilled that my two days off have finally arrived. I am here today with my Bee Crafty hat on to share with you one of my latest makes.

Beautanicals - Large Branch

Wordage - Value of a moment

Dylusion paints

I recently got my gelli plate out for an airing and had a session making backgrounds using yummy Dylusion paints. The background that I used today was a ghost print which i continued to work on after I finished my main print. All of the stamps were stamped using black ink.



It was great to see you here today. Dont forget to hit the follow button above. I love to hear you thoughts and comments, they go down below.


I hope you all have a super weekend. I shall be trying to catch up on chores but i will certainly making some time for me to have a little play in the craft room.


Happy crafting,
