A bit of whimsy...Lynne Forsythe

Lucky us!!! We get a BONUS project from the fabulous Lynne Forsythe!!!
And it is Beautiful!!! Such a cool home decor or gift, don't ya think???
Thanks Lynne for continuing to inspire and create art the is so uplifting!!!

I don't know about you but
life seems to have "ramped" up lately.
It has become harder to find creative time....
so when I have it, I've been keeping
the projects simple.

The basis for my hanging is a
Vintage Pennant from Canvas Corp Brands.
The image is printed on a 6" x 8" canvas.
So I pulled out a few bottles of
Glimmer Glaze....
a water bottle and a paintbrush.

I spritzed the canvas with water
 to moisten not soak
and let the painting begin.
I was looking for a "watercolor" look
so if the color didn't "move" enough
I spritzed it with more water.

When I had achieved the look I was going for
I dried the canvas to stop there
from being any more "color movement".

I then went to my box that holds all my
and began to search for the 
PERFECT verbage.....
and I found it.

In my FAVORITE stamp set

I stamped the verbage onto a piece of
CCB ~ Kraft Paper
cut it apart and
adhered it to my painted Vintage Canvas.
I outlined the verbage with a sharpie!

I found a stick that fit and ran it
through the 1" channel at the top
of the Vintage Canvas.

I pulled out some REALLY cool "yarn"
I had purchased a while back
and hung strands of the yarn
from the ends of the above stick.
Then I dug around my "charms" bowl
and found this ADORABLE
Tattered Angels Antique Brass Bird. still wasn't right!!
So, pulled out my Vintage Trim
and adhered it with Multi Medium.
Now, we were getting some where.

....but still SOMETHING was missing!
So, I decided to try something new,
a "WHAT IF" moment.
I pulled out a jar of 
Perfect Paints ~ Clear Texture Gel
and painted it over the "balloons"!!

It made the "balloons" just pop off the canvas!

Now my heart was happy with my
Whimsical creation!

Hope you have enjoyed another one of my
creative journeys....and my "What If" moment!

Thank you for stopping by!
