It's the Simple Things.......

Just sound this saved in draft......ENJOY!!
It was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT when I laid my eyes on the
Faith Collection by Authentique
coupled with Petaloo Teastained Cream Darjeeling Collection
I used a rustic 12 x 12 window box that I
had picked in my travels.
Along with lots of chippies and resins
to accent the BEAUTIFUL paper.
Yes....that is chicken wire you see nestled in the corner
behind the moss and Darjeeling flower cluster
accented with a Berry Cluster.
OMW....I love this quote!
"I am in charge of how I feel and today I am
choosing happiness"!
I adhered the Details Cardstock Sticker
to a piece of cardboard for a bit of dimension.
Faith Hope and Love....but the greatest of these is LOVE!
Petaloo's Burlap trim worked wonderfuly to help
finish off the last square.
Here are a few closeups of the
BEAUTIFUL Petaloo Flowers used.

I hope you have enjoyed my latest creations...
I am off to find a place to hang this beauty

We Remember.....canvas!

Hello The Crafter's Workshop and Viva Las VegaStamps Fans!!
So GLAD you stopped by to see my creation made using products from
these two amazing companies!
We Remember Canvas by Lynne Forsythe
I created a tutorial on how I made my canvas background for you viewing pleasure!
or it can also be viewed HERE!
We Remember Canvas by Lynne Forsythe
I began by applying a layer of Shimmering Matte Artist Acrylic Paint to a Canvas Panel. Then with stamps chosen from my Viva Las VegaStamps Pound O Rubber, I stamped randomly on the surface.

Next I applied various texture mediums through The Crafter's Workshop
Coffee ~Splotches 6 x6 template and Today Framed Fragment with a palette knife.

I again randomly stamped my surface with Viva Las VegaStamps Pound O Rubber stamps and Archival Ink, embracing the imperfect stamping due to the texture.

I applied a layer of Shimmering Matte Artist Acrylic onto a piece of Kraft Cardstock then proceeded to stamp leaf images onto the surface,
which I in turn I cut out to accent my flower.

Here is a close up of my finished background.

Be the heroine......

Howdy Crafter's Workshop Fans.....
Have you played with TCW Fragments yet??
Lynne Forsythe here with one of my latest projects
using one of these little goodies!
Be The Heroine by Lynne Forsythe
I, first, created the background of my card face by stamping and spritzing
on a Kraft Skinny Card.
Then, I "roughly" applied Embossing Paste through the Heartstrings fragment,
Be The Heroine by Lynne Forsythe
on the upper and lower corners.
Be The Heroine by Lynne Forsythe
When dry I gave the "hearts" a good spritz of Glimmer Mist!
Which made those Heartstring hearts just pop.
I finished off the card with odds and ends I had laying
around and finished it up with a quote.
If you haven't played with some of these little should give
them a try....I know I loved the results!

Welcome to My Kitchen...

Hi.....Canvas Corp Brands Fans!!
Lynne Forsythe here....
Have you seen the NEW Farmhouse Kitchen Collection?
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
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.

My Little Pumpkin by Lynne Forsythe

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.

My Little Pumpkin by Lynne Forsythe

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".

My Little Pumpkin by Lynne Forsythe

I accented the floral border with diecut Maple Leaves
keeping in the Fall theme.
I hope you enjoyed my creative journey......
Textured Elements:
Burlap Blossoms x 10 ~ Natural
Burlap Blossoms x 4 ~ Black & Pistachio
Mixed Textured Mini Blossoms x 9 ~ Black, Amber & Orange/Brown

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. 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. 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.....
