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.

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.
