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.

Clare DT - Glad I Did It with Dylusion paints

Good morning to you all. It's that Bee Crafty time of the week and today I would like to share with you a little wooden heart that I have painted.


For this project I used:

MDF wooden heart (from stash)

Wordage - Glad I did it

Dylusions paint - Crushed grape & White linen

Inkables -Damask

Winged things - Doodlebirds crowned

Winged things - Doodlebirds Floralie

Crackle Glaze from my stash


I started of by coating my heart with crushed grape paint. Once dry I painted on some crackle glaze and dried off with my heat gun. With the white linen paint, using a dry brush I went over the heart making sure i caught the crackly areas.

Using the Damask inkable stencil I went back to the crushed Grape paint and went through the stencil. Once this had dried I bumped the stencil over a small fraction and then applied white linen over the top.

When the paint was dry it was time to stamp. I stamped our winged friends and the sentiment with black ink, applied embossing powder and set with the heat gun.

I painted the birdies with some mica powders from my stash.


That's it from me today. My arm is on the mend although I am still unable to drive. This has given me extra time in the craft room. Although I will be glad when I can get back behind the wheel as everything takes so much longer when you have to walk.
