About Me

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.

While the children are away, mum will play!

Hi there folks, a quick blog from me today. My children are away camping which means I have a lot of crafty time on my hands. Yesterday I decided to have another go at a mixed media canvas.

This time I have just used inks as opposed to acrylics although all of the stencilling has been done with gesso.

I know that there is always room for improvement. I getting a bit more confident with this new craft but I am learning from each canvas that I make and jotting down my do's and dont's in my note/sketch book.


I look forward to hearing your comments. Like I said this is still early days for me so all advise is welcome.


Crafty hugs,
