Mixed Media Valentines Cards

Hi CCB Fans!
With Christmas in the past….it’s time to move onto the holiday of LOVE..
Valentines Day!
I began my project by creating a sheet of Mixed Media paper.
Mixed Media paper you ask….???
I took a piece of 7gypsies ~ Gypsy Seamstress Collection: Bias
and applied layers of cheese cloth, torn muslin, gesso and modeling paste
colored using Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam ~ Jolly Old Elf and Lady Bug
finished off with Glimmer Mist ~ Precious Metal.
I then cut up the paper to create a few cards
and applied my designs to Canvas Corp ~ Value Pack Greeting Cards ~ Kraft and Ivory.

I wanted to share with you a little video on how I stiffened Cheese Cloth
with Glimmer Glam. I used this technique several times, utilizing various Glimmer Glam colors.

Watch me Create….

I decided to change things up and use a
Canvas Corp ~ Stitched Greeting Card ~ Kraft with Canvas.
for my last card.

Valentines Cards 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.
