Articles by Lynne Forsythe

My name is Lynne Forsythe and I hail from a small town in Northern New Hampshire and have been creating since I was a child.  I discovered paper crafting about 7 years ago.....and I have never looked back! I love trying new things, then sharing them with anyone who will listen. I like to remind people that it’s good to step outside of one’s creative box.” I am known for my love of color, and will color anything I can get my hands on. If I was to classify my style, it would be Distress meets Shabby and ALWAYS has flowers!   I has been published in several magazines and currently design for Petaloo, Canvas Corp Brands. I have also created numerous video tutorials and has taught extensively across the United States.
