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.

Happy Birthday Mum xxxx

Just a quick blog from me this evening. There is a lot going on at the moment what with my daughters last week at school.

She has been performing in talent shows, summer concerts and also singing with the Welsh National Opera! That was last week, this week Sophie has two performances in her leavers play and her leavers party. I am so incredibly proud of her acheivements with straight A's and level 5 sats results across all subjects.
With my daughters hectic schedule it has left me with very little crafting time but I managed to slot in some time to make my mum's birthday card.



I took some inspiration from Eileen Godwin (you can visit her blog here) who has been creating some amazing canvases using circles. I have never been fortunate enough to attend one of Eileen's workshops but it certainly is on my to do list.


I used brushos in the background, painted my circles with paperartsy fresco paint and the Indigoblu butterfly with mica powders.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenge: http://indigoblublogchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/challenge-29-flutterby-our-new-design.html

I was so pleased with the card that I have plans to start another on a canvas. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by. I love to hear your comments and if you have really enjoyed your visit remember to press the follow link above.

Happy crafting,

Clare x x x x
