Introducing Art Girl Lynne Forsythe! excited!!!
Today I am bringing you some fabulous art by the very awesome Lynne Forsythe!
I am still over the moon giddy that these ladies have joined me in my quirky creative world.
The Art Girls and I want you to not only be inspired to create art, but inspired to follow
your passions and your dreams! They are sure off to a great start!

Hello Yvonne Blair Designs and
Impression Obsession Fans.....

Lynne Forsythe here and I am
OVER THE MOON excited to be a part
of Yvonne Blair Design's ~ Art Girls!

Have you every had one of those product that you've 
JUST WANTED to try but
NEVER seem to get around to order it??

Well that has been me with Color Burst!!
So I decided to buy myself a Christmas Present.....
a set of Color Burst ~ Earthtones
the fun I had playing with this product!

I pulled out a Natural Canvas from Canvas Corp Brands.
I laid The Crafter's Workshop ~ Folk Art Flower stencil
on the canvas and poofed out various
Color Burst colors and them spritzed with water.

I have to say I LOVE the unpredictability of this product
under these conditions!

I then painted on a layer of
Perfect Paints ~ Perfect Glaze Medium
to seal the canvas so the Color Burst wouldn't move.

Once dry, I applied a layer of
Perfect Paints ~ Dried Cranberries
through The Crafter's Workshop ~ Beaded Curtain Stencil.

Next, I created a few spiral flowers from some
vintage dictionary paper
and colored them with Color Burst.

Then, I pulled out some of
Canvas Corp Brands ~ Mistable papers to create the
leaves, which were of course colored with
Color Burst!!

For added measure I painted a few
Layered Hexagons from UmWowStudio
for added texture.

I finished off my canvas with one of

Using an Archival Ink pad,
 onto a piece of vintage dictionary paper
and cut out the individual words.

I applied the stamped words to my canvas with
Ranger's Multi Medium ~ Matte.

I hope you have enjoyed my 
I know I sure did!!

Thanks so much Lynne! 
I LOVE what you did with this canvas and Color Burst!!! 
I think I need to go play now! hehehe. 
Till next time!!! 


  1. This is just gorgeous. Would love to see a video tutorial on making those flowers. I do most of my "art" in a book as canvases take so much space

    1. Thank you for your kind words. Be watching.....I may just create a video!

  2. Well...I can tell that I will have to get some color burst to play with...I keep seeing all these awesome creations by Lynne :) Soooo Color Burst it is and maybe I can use it with all those Yvonne Blair stamps I got a few months ago...I so need to try an altered art canvas for sure my style and I have never tried one...Love this newest piece so inspire me girl...AWESOME!

    1. Thanks BUNCHES Mary! Glad you enjoyed my project.....and YES WE DO!

  5. Just GORGEOUS Lynne but I have to say... your flower was the most captivating part to me. That is one of the most INTRIGUINGLY AMAZING flowers EVER... and the leaves. Your background is so fun... love the earth tone colors for sure. I must admit... I have not yet tried Colorburst! Such a super post - you are a PERFECT ART GIRL! j.

    Yvonne, I came by to let you know you have finally done it! And so have I! I made my first art journal page, and I did it in YOUR awesome art journal! It is amazing how much abuse those pages take and I have to say I will NEVER be able to work in a spiral bound journal. You're a genius! Have a looksie if you get a moment...

    THANK YOU, again! You are a doll for your wonderful inspiration and of course, your gift!Hugs!
