Mixed Media Monthly Challenge – Rustic

Hello there and welcome to the 1st of the September aaaaaaand the day where we at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog get to share a new challenge with you! This month it’s all about getting RUSTIC!! Wooohooo!


This month the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog is proud to be sponsored this month by Canvas Corp Brands.  They are offering our random winner a $25 certificate!! How awesome!!


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
