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.

Summer journal entry

Good afternoon bloggers, and a sunny one it is! It is however a bit blustery here but for now the sun is shining and that certainly puts a smile on my face.


Today I decided to do an summer entry into my journal. I have used Dylusion paints for the background, I shall list the stamps and stencils below.


I would like to enter the above into the following challenge: http://countryviewchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/brrrrr-its-august.html

For this project i used:

Dina Wakely - Scribbly Birds

Dina Wakely - plastic canvas stencil

Dina Wakely - Spinners

Tim Holtz - layering stencil splotches

TCW - Tiny Circles stencil
