Spring Mixed Media Banner

Hi Canvas Corp Brands Fans….
Lynne Forsythe here to share my latest creations.

Since the first time I encountered a Mix and Match Pad
I have been in love
and the Spring Showers Mix and Match is no exception.

Do you see all the Canvas Corp Goodness….
patterened papers
printed canvas
kraft paper
I am in crafty heaven……..all in one pad!


So I wanted to see how many things I could create with
this Mix and Match Pad.

My first creation was a banner….

Spring Banner by Lynne Forsythe

My banner inspiration came from the
Fabric Panel ~ Spring Showers.

You see….I had pulled out a few of jars of
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glaze.
I would paint on the Glaze and then spritz it with water
creating a “watercoloresque” look!

The fabric panels are 100% cotton fabric with screen printed art, so they can take any type of paint and are washable if the paint is.  Glimmer Glaze is washable.

Glimmer Glaze is perfect for adult coloring on any surface including papers and fabrics and they look terrific.  Add water and let the color spread or use the brush and paint very detailed, your choice!!

But it was soooo fabby I didn’t know what to do….
So I did the unthinkable…
I tore it into strips!

I then ran a running stitch through the strips…..

Next, I pulled out the Canvas Sheet
and cut (6) triangles …
and manhandled them to get frayed edges!

I then gently spritzed the strips with water to make
them a bit more workable as the
TA ~ Glimmer Glaze made the canvas a tad stiff!
I then adhered the strips to the triangle pieces
with Multi Medium ~ Matte.

Now….the Fabric Panel wasn’t the only thing I painted
with the Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze.
When I painted the butterflies in the
Butterflies on Ivory paper
I wanted them to look “glazed”
so I was rather heavy handed with my application.

Canvas Corp offers a wide range of papers that are ready to be colored or painted in your way.

I loved the end result!

I want to share with you close~ups of each banner piece.
Now….it’s tell on Lynne time
I chose to use substitute Avocado Burlap for the Orange Burlap
(sorry not a huge fan of orange….sorry!)

Also, I accented the banner with vintage buttons painted with
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glaze ~ Desert Sun.

I used several different colored Cords and Rope.
to hang the banner.

love the layers of cords that looks so natural and offer a pop of color.

Slip colored burlap in between the layers for a great pop of color.  Let your hair down and let the burlap fringe.

Add buttons to the top of banner pennants for a great look.

I still had tons of left over painted paper….
I mixed water with the
Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glaze
to create this colorful
Black and Ivory Plaid.

I painted the Glimmer Glaze onto
Seed Packets on Ivory
and spritzed the paper directly with water.

Lynne inspires us with her sense of color and style and just love how she tore into this mixed and match pad to create wonderful mixed media products.  To see more of Lynne’s work jump over to her blog – The Next Best Thing by Lynne.

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.
