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.

Funky flowers

Hi folks, alas it is sunday night and I have got that monday feeling creeping in but I have managed to find some me time today to play in the craft room. I have been working on a canvas with Dylusion paints in the background and Dina Wakely acrylics over the top.


First I created my painted background with Dylusion paints using lemon zest, squeezed orange and bubblegum pink along with some markmaking with the above colours and white.


I roughly drew the blooms and leaves, filling in around them I blended on some Dina Wakely Night and white acrylics.


Finally I doodled with my black and white Posca paint pens. I love doodling, I find it so relaxing and very easy to loose myself in a bit of a trance!


Thank you for stopping by, I love to here your thoughts and comments so feel free to leave one below. I do hope you have had a fabulous weekend?


Painty hugs,
