A fun, new project bought to you by American Design Team Member Jamie PopeToday Jamie will show you how she turned a small piece of canvas into an adorable set of earrings.

I started with small piece of adhesive backed canvas, approximately 3in by 5in.  Then, using a Yellow ZIG Fabricolor pen, color the entire piece of canvas.

I always add a bit of bling to my projects and that's just what I did.  I squeezed a couple of drops of ink from an Orange ZIG Wink of Stella Brush Pen onto my craft sheet.  Then I mixed the ink with a bit of water.  By diluting the ink, it allowed me to get all the benefit of the glimmer, but just a hint of color, which is exactly what I wanted.

Next, I randomly stamped on two different images using my Black and Red ZIG Fabricolor pens.

Next I created the heart shapes.  Start with removing the backing on the canvas, then fold the canvas in half.

Now, simply cut out two heart shapes from the canvas.

Next, add an eyelet into the upper corner of each heart.

Lastly, attach a jump ring to the eyelet, then attach an earring hook.

Now you have a ready to wear unique, one of a kind set of earrings.
