Welcome to My Kitchen….

Hi…..Canvas Corp Brands Fans!! Lynne Forsythe here….have you seen the NEW Farmhouse Kitchen Collection? It is AMAZING. I think my favorite item in the collection is the Farmhouse Kitchen Fabric Panel. A 13″ X 17″ piece of Printed Canvas.


Now….anyone who knows my style, knows I rip, tear and crumple EVERYTHING! But….I had the hardest time cutting into this panel! I heard myself say….It’s only paper!! (which I am famous for saying!!) but it’s not paper it’s CANVAS. However, as my idea for a Kitchen Banner grew in my head, I KNEW I could do this…so the TEARING began!

The base of my banner is (2) Burlap Shape ~ Pockets and (1) Canvas Shape ~ Pocket. I rumpled the shapes to fray the edges.

I chose the images I wanted from the Kitchen Farmhouse  Fabric Panel cut into the canvas, and tore the squares, approximately 4.5″. I even pulled out my Tattered Floral die and cut (3) Medium Flowers.


To accent the “Farmhouse” flower I roughly painted a section of  a 12 x 12 Burlap Sheet with Tattered Angels ~ Black High Impact Paint and die cut (3) Medium Flowers. I took a Red Burlap Flower and cut off the back layer, then cut it in half. I spritzed it with water and painted Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Glam Calm Before the Storm around the edges and tucked it behind the flower layers.

I accented all 3 flowers clusters with 16″ separated pieces of Red, Black and Natural Jute tied into “loopy bows” and matching antique buttons.

I used little pieces of Tile Printed BurlapTile Printed CanvasBlack E-FluteBlack Burlap Fringe and Ivory Burlap Fringe that had been torn, or rumpled and frayed and tucked them behind the torn pieces of Farmhouse Kitchen Fabric Panel.

I stamped on torn pieces of canvas with Archival Ink and finished off the banner with chipboard letters painted with Tattered Angels ~ Black High Impact Paint accented with  Red and Black Clothespins.

    Lynne, love this project. The shabby texture really gives a full body feel that is so perfect for the kitchen with lots of personality
