Howdy Die~Namites Die Fans....
Lynne Forsythe here for today's post. 

Let's begin with a question.....
Do you sometimes get stuck in a design rut??
Have no mojo for an upcoming project?
Just stumped as to where to begin?? 
I find that I LOVE to go to sketches!!
It's a GREAT PLACE to just BEGIN
and let the inspiration get jumpstarted and then it seems to just flow!!

I had a few sketches banging around.... here is one....
Nothing FANCY
just a simple line drawing!

Then I added a twist....
I needed to use at least ONE die, 
FABRIC and NO flower cluster!

Now, this sketch could be interpreted into a card, ATC,
beginnings to an Altered Art piece....
even a layout!

It was good to do this exercise....
I find myself always creating the same
"LOOK" it was nice to branch out!
For my card I used...

I used lots of colors,
(maybe tooo many)
trying different techniques.

I cut the "Love Heart" from Corkstock
spritzed it, sprayed it and painted it!

Can you see the "Twiggy Hedge" nestled in the background?

So.....there you have it PEEPS.....
my artistic exercise!

Be watching on the First Monday of September
as we invite you to join along with our 
Monthly Sketch and
"Die~Namites Dare"!!

PS.....I think there will even be a Prize for a RANDOM participant!
Be watching for more details!


  1. Beautiful project, Lynne! I'm so scared to try the mixed media rage - afraid I'll want more supplies! lol... Love this!

  2. Fabulous idea using a your project and that was a challenge for you not to use a flower cluster....loved the banner...thanks for sharing.
