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.

Back to the drawing board!

Hi bloggers, this year has seen a change in direction for me. I have always been primarily a card maker but I discovered art journaling a couple of years. I am always so far away from any of the classes that I wanted to attend so decided to sign myself up for a couple of online classes. The first one Wanderlust and the second being Bad Ass Art journaling.


I am really enjoying branching out and trying new styles. The above project is a cityscapes. I did this in my large Dylusions art journal inspired by Robin Mead. I used mainly fresco acrylic paints along with some Dylusion paints. I doodled away with my posca paint pens.


Another project I completed yesterday was this little lady. She is certainly a little wierd and wonderful and hugely out of my comfort zone. I know that I am going to have to try things that I wouldn't normally choose to do but I know that I will take something with me from each lesson. This project was inspired by Nicci Battilana



I have quite a few painty projects on the boil at the moment and look forward to sharing them with you very soon.


Happy crafting,

Clare x x x
