Sarah Hurley Challenge: Love is all Around Canvas!

Good Evening everyone-hope you are well! :-) Here I am with my project for our challenge this fortnight at Sarah Hurley Challenge, our theme being 'Love is all Around'. I was really inspired by this theme and wanted to make something really different so I made a Flying Heart Canvas.
For this project I used a bare canvas, Sarah Hurley papers from her Wonderland CD printed onto 200gsm card, Bone folder, Ruler, Aleens Tacky Glue and my Cricut. I started by painting my canvas in red acrylic paint. Then I cut a whole page of little hearts with my Cricut out of the patterened card.
I then folded each little heart in half using my ruler and bone folder so the hearts looked like they were little Butterflies flying. Next I made a larger heart pattern with the little hearts on my canvas and glued them with Aleens tacky glue.
I hope you like it-I have been lucky enough to have this project feature on a couple of Valentines Treasury lists on Etsy as it is available on my Etsy-the link is in my sidebar :-)
