Layouts and Stencils…..

Hi Everyone…..Lynne Forsythe here, I am OVER THE MOON EXCITED to be sharing with you one of my latest creations using the Crafter’s Workshop stencils.

As my children have grown older I began to shy away from layouts
and to expand into forms of Mixed Media.
Now, my art is about to return to it’s roots…..
with a new little addition to my family… grandson Izaya!
I have more pictures of this little one than I know what to do with!


I LOVE Mixed Media so I began to experiment with how to
integrate the techniques into my layouts.

As I am a bit unfamiliar with applying “mists” through stencils
I decided to experiment with a few different applicators…
Make up Sponges
Paint Brush
Sea Sponge

I LOVED how the Sea Sponge gave the appearance of texture.

When I was happy with my “misty” background
I just had to add some texture….
a bit of Ferro through the TCW202 Harlequin Stencil.

You're Special by Lynne ForsytheFor a bit of a pop…..
I ran a bit of Molding Paste through
the TCW267 Ledger Stencil
….the perfect addition.

Now that my background was complete
I scrapped this “manly” page of “My Lil Bug!”
Isn’t he just the cutest??!??!?
