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.

Winter Warmers

Good morning all,  just a quick post to remind you there is still time to take part in this months  Mixed Media Monthly  Challenge.  Pop over to the the blog  to check out the rules and submit your entries and  as it is the season of goodwill there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs so be sure to enter your merry makes!

Eileen Hull, our sponsor for this month,  very kindly provided us with some die cut boxes.  For my second project I visualised the delightful tray full of seasonal treats.


In this  design  I used  Decoart fluids (turquoise) once again but this time I chose to work with the Decoart crackle paste.  I went for a mega crackle and applied weathered wood before applying a layer of the paste.  Once dry  I painted on a layer of antiquing cream  and rubbed back to reveal my frosty offering.  I trimmed the box with some die cut snow flakes and some sparkly stickers.  I couldn't resist adding some stickles to give some more twinkle to the project.  The title was applied and the little box was filled with sachets of  hot chocolate and festive treats.



Thank you for taking the time to stop by.  It is such a busy time of year so I really do appreciate it.  I'm really looking forward to the holidays (lots of crafty time) and I'll  be back soon to share some more craftyness!

Crafty hugs,

Clare X X X
