Valentine’s Day Love and Hearts Inchies on Stretched Canvas

What says love more than red hearts? This canvas is full of symbols that say I love you and is kept in the colors of red and white for simplification. First the canvas was covered with a paper napkin using the “Paper Napkin Tutorial” (link below) to add color to it. Then a piece of fiber paper was adhered to the canvas to add an interesting effect to it. Then it was embellished with different items found in the craft bins such as die cuts, beads, gems, sequins, washi tape, etc... and used different papers to make it even more appealing. There are normally no set rules to creating an inchie except for the size of it. Usually one would use 1 inch squares but this project breaks the rules and uses squares measuring 5 centimeters (approximately 2.5 inches in size). This stretched canvas itself is 20 x 20 centimeter in size.
