Welcome to My Kitchen...

Hi.....Canvas Corp Brands Fans!!
Lynne Forsythe here....
Have you seen the NEW Farmhouse Kitchen Collection?
It is AMAZING.
I think my favorite item in the Collection
is the Farmhouse Kitchen Fabric Panel.
A 13" X 17" piece of Printed Canvas.
Now....anyone who knows my style,
knows I rip, tear and crumple
EVERYTHING!
But....I had the hardest time
cutting into this panel!
I heard myself say....It's only paper!!
(which I am famous for saying!!)
but it's not paper it's CANVAS.
However, as my idea for a Kitchen Banner
grew in my head, I KNEW I could do this...
So the TEARING began!
The base of my banner is
(2) Burlap Shape ~ Pockets and
(1) Canvas Shape ~ Pocket.
I rumpled the shapes to fray the edges.
I chose the images I wanted from the
Kitchen Farmhouse  Fabric Panel
cut into the canvas,
and tore the squares,
approximately 4.5".
I even pulled out my Tattered Floral die
and cut (3) Medium Flowers.
To accent the "Farmhouse" flower
I roughly painted a section of  a 12 x 12 Burlap Sheet
with Tattered Angels ~ Black High Impact Paint
and die cut (3) Medium Flowers.
I took a Red Burlap Flower and
cut off the back layer, then cut it in half.
I spritzed it with water
and painted Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glam
Calm Before the Storm around the edges
and tucked it behind the flower layers.
I accented all 3 flowers clusters with 16" separated pieces of
RedBlack and Natural Jute
tied into "loopy bows"
and matching antique buttons.
that had been torn,
or rumpled and frayed
and tucked them behind the torn pieces of
Farmhouse Kitchen Fabric Panel.
I stamped on torn pieces of canvas
with Archival Ink and finished off the
banner with chipboard letters
painted with Tattered Angels ~ Black High Impact Paint
accented with  Red and Black Clothespins.
I hope you enjoyed my creative journey....

My lil Pumpkin!

My Little Pumpkin by Lynne Forsythe

My daughter visited a local apple orchard, Windy Ridge, with her boys.
It's a wonderful fall "to go to" place here in Northern NH.
She took some AMAZING photos of her little,
which I COULDN'T wait to scrap!

My Little Pumpkin by Lynne Forsythe

I used Authentique's Spirited Collection ~ Eerie and Ominous papers
adhered to cardboard and diecut, to create my pumpkin patch.

The Authentique ~ Spirited ~ Components, Circles & Scallops
and Stamp Blocks were just PERFECT to accent my layout.
I created a bit of a "road sign" by cutting up
the "You Are My Little Pumpkin" banner.

I then poceeded to us Petaloo ~ Fancy Trims and
LOTS of VARIOUS Petaloo flowers to create the base of
my "Pumpkin Patch"!

My Little Pumpkin by Lynne Forsythe

I had the BEST TIME mixing the various Petaloo blooms,
utilizing different textures and sizes,
to keep the "Pumpkin Patch" looking a bit "manly".

I accented the floral border with diecut Maple Leaves
keeping in the Fall theme.
I hope you enjoyed my creative journey......
Petaloo
Textured Elements:

Makin' Tags......

Did you know The Crafter's Workshop has a NEW RELEASE of stencils??
I’m having a BLAST playing with them!
I’m also having a blast playing with some NEW TEXTURES
with my NEW STENCILS!!
Today, I am going to share with you
2 of the 4 tags I recently created!
I cut my tags from Core’dinations Heavyweight 110lb White Cardstock.
This paper is AMAZING….
it’ll take all the liquid you can give it and pretty much
retain it’s shape!!
For my first tag I used
TCW494s ~ Trapezoid Flower.
I applied both Wendy Vecchi ~ Metallic Gold Embossing and Crackled Texture Pastes
through the stencil.
When dry, I then spritzed the tag with Tattered Angels ~ Kraft Glimmer Mist
and painted on a bit of Tattered Angels ~ Blue Bubbles Glimmer Mist
over the Wendy Vecchi ~ Crackled texture paste.
I then ran a bit of Wendy Vecchi/Ranger ~ Watering Can Archival Ink over the entire tag face.
Everyday....by Lynne Forsythe
When dry, I then embellished the tag with Petaloo ~ Textured Elements flowers
and Tattered Angels ~ Mistable Papers
diecut using Die~Namites Dies ~ Large Ivy.
Everyday....by Lynne Forsythe
For my second tag….
I used TCW486s ~ Labyrinth Stencil
and a bit of Wendy Vecchi ~ Translucent Embossing Paste.
I then created a tie-dye effect by spritzing
various Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mists and letting them run together.
Once again…..
I embellished the tag with
Petaloo Botanica Collection flowers, burlap and a bit of jute
I hope you have enjoyed my tags….
’cause I sure had fun making them!!
Make sure to stop back later for my other 2 tags.

I hope you enjoyed my tags.....

Chase the DREAM!

I really had a FUN TIME creating this project....
I had no idea what I was doing....
.....or where it would take me!


This is how I created the background paper.
I began with a piece of white cardstock.
Then, I laid down a layer of Ranger's ~ Multi Medium
all over the cardstock with a fan brush.
I placed Petaloo ~ Embossed Daisies ~ Tangerine and Tulip Yellow
randomly all over the cardstock and dried it.
Next, using a fan brush,
 I brushed on a layer of Ranger ~ Dina Wakely ~ White Gesso
not completely covering the flowers.
When dry, I applied
Wendy Vecchi's ~ embossing paste ~ translucent
I dried the paper throughly.
Then I spritzed the paper with
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist ~ Aquamarine.
Dried the paper again and spritzed the paper with
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist ~ Candlelight.
When dry, I used TCW ~ Kasia's Letter Template again,
 this time applying the White Gesso
with a Stencil Brush.
Creating this....


I cut the paper to size to cover my
"Chunky ATC"


I then embellished the top and front of 
my "Chunky ATC".



I had left over "created" paper and pieces parts so, I made this card.


I just love Tattered Angels ~ Mistable Papers ~ Linen
colored with 
cut with Die~Namites Dies ~ Large Ivy die.

Hope you enjoyed my creative journey!!!

playin' with 'TOVERS!!!

I had worked on a creation for one of my design teams and
had a few 'TOVERS. Being a rainy Sunday Morning,
I decided to play.
I limited myself to using what was on my desk....
this is what I came up with!


I created the card around the 3 top hearts that were created using
The Crafter's Workshop ~ Love Post (small)
and Gelatos, which I cut out.
I found a bit of Petaloo Fancy Trim laying around
along with a few Petaloo Embellishment Brads
and a FLOWER to accent my hearts.

I also used the same stencil to apply
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glaze ~ Sangria
to my card face.
When dry I applied a layer of Studio 490/Wendy Vecchi
crackled embossing paste.....LOVE THIS STUFF!


I applied a bit of Gelatos ~ Cotton Candy
to the edges, applied a bit of water
with a paintbrush to blend.....

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT!!

HAPPPPPPY MONDAY
and remember to ALWAYS
FOLLOW YOUR HEART!!!

WE.....remember MOMENTS!

Summer is in FULL SWING!
I don't know about you but I spend a lot of time outside,
fleamarkets, garage sales and other FUN outdoor events.
The last thing I want to be hauling around is my pocketbook!
I want to be free to enjoy! So I made myself a "Hip" Bag!


I pulled out a Canvas Corp Brands ~ Canvas Shoulder Bag.
Then I had one of those.....I wonder if moments!
I wonder if....I mixed Gelatos with Textile Medium
could I create an image that would permanent?!??!??!
And by golly it worked!
(not that I would put it in the wash)

I sliced of bits of Gelatoos 
Tangerine
Metallic Melon
Butterscotch
and 
Blueberry
and with a palette knife gently mixed in
a bit of Textile Medium creating a "paint type" mixture.
(I wish I had pictures!!)


I randomly applied the "paint type" mixture
through the Crafter's Workshop ~ Specimen Template.
When I was finished applying 
I used my heat tool to dry my image.
I then used Archival Ink ~ Jet Black and 
randomly stamped on my bag.


I then found a piece of vintage lace which I proceeded to color
with my "paint type" mixture 
along with some vintage ric-rac!


I then cut the strap,
so the loops could go through the belt loops on my pants
and applied velcro to the inside for easy use.
I added a vintage button on the outside...
just for looks!


There you have.....my "Hip" bag!
The theme for my summer is...
We don't remember days....We remember moments!
And I'm into making MOMENTS this summer!!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog today1
