MAN WEEK ~ Lynne Forsythe

Thank you for joining Die~Namites Dies for....


.....a week of masculine inspired creations!


Now I don't know about you
but "manly" creations are a bit of a stretch for me.
Now a creation with lace and flowers is a bit more down my alley.

When I began thinking about what I was going to create....
I realized I really didn't have anyone to give a Father's Day Card to
but I did need to make something for my son's Birthday.

But what oh what to use.....
and THERE IT WAS.... on my craft table.
You see.....when I have left over mixed media "stuff"
paint
sprays
texture medium
I hate to sop it up and just throw it away....
so I have a pile of 
cards
tags
file folders
that I apply the 'tovers to!!


Here is one of those such 'tover creations.....
PERFECT for my "Man Week" piece.

To "man" up my handmade paper,
I distrezzed the edges with my Distrezz it All.


Next, I went digging for a piece of Canvas Corp Brands Chalkstock
and cut it to size. I applied a layer Perfect Paints White Stucco
through The Crafter's Workshop Chickenwire Reversed stencil.
Then distrezzed the edges.


I then chose a piece of Canvas Corp Brands C Flute
for my third layer. I spritzed the piece with water and
Tattered Angels Tarnished Silver
and "manhandled" the edges.


I just knew which Die~Namites Die I wanted
as the focal point...the Winged Heart
just PERFECT for my "manly" creation.


Because I LOVE the feeling and look of the Chalkstock
I diecut the Winged Heart and mucked it up with
a bit of White Stucco.


.....here is my finished "Man Week" creation!!


and a few closeups!!

I popped the center cut out heart to add more dimension.




I hope you've enjoyed my "Man Week" creation....
and I hope my boy does too!
