All those tags....MMMC Mid Month


Welcome to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge ~ MidMonth!


Our sponsor this month is...

When working on my first post for the challenge,
I made up a BUNCH OF TAGS.
If you missed it....here is my video on
how I made my tags using stamps fromTopFlight Stamps.


I truly had an AWESOME time working with
my Block Wallah ~ Exotic  and also
Katzelkrafts ~ Clouds stamps.

So.....what does one do with all these "tags"??!??!
You fancy 'em up....
a flower
some leaves
a bit of ticking
a length of wire ribbon
and a loopy bow.

But then what??
You've end up with a pile of tags. 
So I thought I'd try something different.


I decided to cover an artboard with some vintage paper,
added a bit of vintage curtian and
an larger piece of flute.....
to create a tag, worthy of hanging on your wall.

Free Create Day......



I try to carve out at least one creative session a week 
that is a FREE CREATE!

Today, was one of those day.....
I had some rather grueling paper work to do
so I thought I put my happy hat on first!

Now this is a doubly inspired post....
It began with the Reach For the Stars Workshop
being hosted by 4 AMAZING designers.
Miranda Edney
Tiffany Solorio
Jaya Raghuvanshi
Georgie Connelly


My first inspiration 
was  Jaya Raghuvanshi's project,
which was FABULOUS!

Then I saw the latest mood board


My second inspiration....
color, flowers, wood etc.

Sooooo I combined the two and this is what I ended up with
Here is what I came up with.....

Mixed Media Monthly Challenge ~ Mid April

Mid Month creation....


Our sponsor this month is.....


So if you stopped by my blog
at the beginning of the month
you would know my SuperPower is 
using up my 'TOVERS. 

What are 'TOVERS you may ask.....
they are the leftover pieces parts that accumulate
on my work surfaces from bygone projects.....

Earlier this month, I was apart of
TopFlight Stamps Grand Opening!
I was working with one of their Block Wallah stamps.

I had tons of 'TOVERS from that project
so I pulled them out and let the fun begin!

Now, some of the 'TOVER tags I pulled to work with
had stenciled texture medium on them
not very conducive to stamping,
so I decided to stamped on a piece of
tissue paper with 
See my video on my exploration of my Block Wallah stamp.

My SuperPower Mid Month ~ Lynne Forsythe

Then I cut out the stamped images.

My SuperPower Mid Month ~ Lynne Forsythe

I applied the stamped images to my tags with
Multi Medium ~ Matte.

Here is my finished project.

What is your SUPERPOWER?

Welcome to April's CHALLENGE


Our sponsor this month is Stampers Anonymous.


Well....I don't own any "super hero" stamps
so that isn't my superpower
(as my grandson hangs his head in shame)

But I think my superpower is creating with 'TOVERS
one of my FAVORITE things to do....
you see I was raised....
Waste NOT.....WANT not!


.....so I have a tendency to collect
"useable" pieces parts....'TOVERS.


Here is a quick video of me creating
this 'TOVER Mixed Media Tag.


Here are a few closeups.....

Once I had my "stamped papers" created....


I pulled out a few more of my faves to use....

Button Button....who has the Button



Now, if you know me you know I LOVE BUTTONS.
In fact, I might be called a button hoarder!!
I KNOW....i didn't use a lot of buttons but I chose
two vintage buttons, one is a Mother of Pearl Flower button
and the other a vintage blingy beauty!


I began by using a 6 x 6 Artboard.
I pulled out a stencil and applied White Stucco through it.


I spritzed and splattered Glimmer Mists on canvas.
I stamped randomly using different style stamps.
Then I applied another layer of White Stucco.
When dry I applied a layer of Glaze and let it dry.
I then spritzed and splattered with more Glimmer Mist.
I also applied Prills in various places.
I set it aside to dry.


I cut out a few leaves from some Handmade Paper and spritzed
with more Glimmer Mist.


Then I created my Button Flower.
I used vintage curtains to diecut my flower layers.
Now...I made an error when taking this photo
I painted on a layer of Glimmer Glam (not glimmer mist)
to stiffen the fabric and added a bit of color to the center
and edges for depth.


I went to my pile of 'TOVERS and found these
bits and pieces to use on my canvas.


Here are a few more picts of my
Button....Button creation.




Thank you for stopping by and takin' a peek at my creation.
