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.

Enjoy the Journey

Good evening fellow crafters. Just a little blog from me tonight after a very busy day at work. I can safely say that in two weeks time I shall be feeling overjoyed about the start of the summer holidays which of course means lots of time to spend in the craft room, oh yes and a little bit of housework.


Not that I will be venturing too far this summer but tonight I have made a travel themed tag.


I don't often use tags so just for a change I thought I would throw things into a mix and have a go at something a bit different.



For this project I used:

Dylusions paints

Clarity Hot Air Balloons

Sentiment from a Stampers Anonymous set

Grunge paste

TCW - Art is stencil

Gold embossing powder

I would like to enter this tag into the following challenge: On Your Travels http://countryviewchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/july-promises-to-be-sizzler.html

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my blog tonight. I love to hear your comments, feel free to post below. You can see what I get up to next by following my blog on the links above.

I hope you all have a good week, see you soon.

Happy crafting,

Clare x x x
