Canvas Picture with Maritime Themed Inchies

Inchies are 1 x 1 inch squares and can be decorated according to theme, holiday, color or just about anyway you like. It is an absolutely fun way to use up small scraps of paper, fabric, scrapbook embellishments or anything you have around. Once you have a collection of inchies, you can consider displaying them on a canvas such as the one in the image.



Summer Canvas Picture with Inchies - Maritime Theme

For this project you will need:

- different colors of blue, white and silver cardstock
- embellishments and charms with maritime motifs such as fish, seagulls, seashells, stars, lighthouses, etc...
- silver wire
- fibers, netting, fabric, silver wire, etc...
- paper punches with maritime motifs, stars, circles, etc...
- beads and buttons
- 3-D foam tape
- craft glue and stick glue
- 20 x 20 cm canvas for 25 inchies


Let the picture inspire you and give you ideas how you can decorate your inchies. The theme here is maritime and has a fresh look of summer in the shades of blue. Once you have completed the amount of inchies you need, the next step is to organzie them onto the canvas. These inchies were adhered using 3-D foam tape. It sticks well to both the paper and to the canvas and is not messy.
