Two Gifts Canvas by Lynne Forsythe

 I began my creative  journey with a 12 x 12 stretched canvas.

I then pulled out a package of 4 Canvas Corp Brands Coasters

and 4 Gypsy Trading Cards ~ Canvas
and began to arrange them on the canvas and to my GREAT excitement they fit together just PERFECTLY!!

I roughed up the various Canvas Pieces….
Stamped on them
Stenciled on them
to create a VINTAGE look.

I then pulled out my stash of Gypsy Moments,
I have to say…
EVERY TIME I look at this collection of paper…..I sigh!!
The vintage shabby look just makes my heart sing!

I began creating a patchwork heart on my canvas pieces
using the various papers from the Gypsy Moments Collection
so that now two shapes were the same.
I distrezzed the edges of the papers and adhered them to my canvas shapes.

and let the mixed media creativity flow!!
