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.

Happy Place


It seems like an age since I reached for my journal and for one reason or another today was the day.  


Today I used my Paperartsy Fresco paints and sploged away to make my background.  Using Tim Holtz stencils and the paints I added in some marks for me to work with later.

 
I stamped Trish Latimer's Whimsy girl onto some water colour card and coloured with Neocolour II Water soluble crayons.  I fussy cut her and collaged onto my journal page.


I added lots of doodling with my paint pens (my favourite part).   That was some much needed therapy today.  I really let go, note to self  I must make more time for my journal in future
and stop letting things get in the way.

I love to hear your thoughts and comments, feel free to follow or subscribe.

Happy crafting,

Hugs,
