In Jean’s Words

When working on a project – especially one off the paper – it is important to have the right adhesive. This will ensure your project comes together and stays together. Helmar has a variety of adhesives including Fabric Glue, 450 Quick Dry and Scrap Dots. Each of these played an important part in this project! I was confident my canvas, flowers and titles would stay where I put them on the wreath! This beautiful wreath will grace the door of my work room and provide me with encouragement as I as create.

Jean’s Creative Process

Step 1

Begin by cutting white canvas into strips and banner flags. Stamp with a permanent ink. Spray with Tattered Angels mists.

Step 2

Next, using Helmar Fabric Glue,  secure strips to wreath.

Step 3

Fussy cut flowers and mist with Tattered Angels ~ Iridescent silver. While wet, bend and fold to give the flowers shape and dimension. Layer flowers using Helmar ~ Scrap Dots. This is a 3D glue which will also add dimension to the flower layers.

Step 4

Assemble cluster securing all layers using Helmar 450. This glue dries quickly and clear. Once the cluster is dry, secure to wreath also using the 450.

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.
