Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #28 - Rustic

Welcome to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #28
(just create a rustic feeling project)
***please remember to add this graphic to your blog post***

Our September Sponsor is CanvasCorpBrands

~Canvas Corp Brands is offering our lucky random winner a $25 gift certificate!!~

Our September Guest Designer is the CCB Designer 
Lynn Forsythe
Lynne Forsythe is from a small town in Northern New Hampshire and has been creating since she was a child.  Lynne discovered paper crafting about 10 years ago.....and has have never looked back! She loves trying new things, then sharing them with anyone who will listen. Lynne likes to remind people that it’s good to step outside of one’s creative box.” She is known for her love of color, and will color anything she can get her hands on. If she was to classify her style, it would be Distress meets Shabby and ALWAYS has flowers!  

Lynne has been published in several magazines and currently designs for Canvas Corp Brands, UmWowStudio and Yvonne Blair Designs/Impression Obsession. Lynne has also created numerous video tutorials and has taught extensively across the United States. 

 This month we did something a little different. All our MMMC Designers created their own Rustic Mood Boards and CanvasCorpBrands very generously sent us products that reflected our mood boards. Be sure to check our our individual mood boards. If you would like to create a rustic mood board to use as inspiration for your project we would love to see it. Be sure to add it to your post if you create one. 

Here is the mood board Lynne created. 

And, here is the gorgeous "Rustic" mixed media project she created for us this month from her mood board inspiration. 

 And now for some inspiration from our Design Team...
