Subway Art

I love the look of subway art. Most tutorials require the use of the fancy schmancy Cricut. Well, since I don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars on one, I came up with my own way to make some subway art.
Looks pretty good I'd say!
Here's my how to.

I started with a piece of foam board and some stickers in several different fonts.

I drew some evenly spaced lines on the board then started sticking on my letters.
I decided to fill my board with just words and phrases that describe me and my hunky hubby.

I covered it with stickers, then painted it.
Once the paint is dry, its time to start pealing off the letters.
This step took way longer than I had anticipated. Maybe its cuz I used foam board instead of a canvas? I don't know. Whatever the reason, next time I think I'll use just a bunch of white letters (assuming I can find lots of them in a bunch of different fonts.)

Anyways. . . Once the pealing was done I just did a little touch up painting to fix any areas that needed a little help.
My hubby gets a lot of credit for the pealing. He was a huge help!
He is so sweet how he helps me with my projects even though he thinks I'm a little bonkers at times.
Well, it was worth the work for the final product. It goes great in my craft room and looks cute with the boxes I made here.
Well my craft room is one step closer to being fully decorated.

Thanks for reading!

Very cute! I love your resourcefulness~the stickers were a great idea.

I may be one of the only bloggers left who hasn't made one of these. I don't know why I haven't, because I love them!
