Our amazing guest designer for the month is Lynne Forsythe.  Check out her blog HERE.

I love making rustic projects! Canvas Corp Brands sent us so many wonderful products and it was difficult deciding where to begin. So, I decided to start with a background and build from there on my pre-gessoed canvas. Using the burlap and canvas pieces for simple flower accents. The sprays for the background. Twine for the word.  This 8″ x 10″ canvas came together quite quickly once I began. I hope you like it.

      Hi Randa! Yes, I tried to do this at first with my own handwriting, but no bueno. So I printed the “love” to my specs and fussy-cut it. :) So happy that you caught that. <3
