DIY Family Subway Art

2012-10-13 002 001
I have been a fan of subway art for a while now and I’ve wanted a custom piece with special words for my family. Most of the blogland tutorial’s I’d seen were too involved. Until I came across this pin on Pinterest. She designed her subway art using her cricut and MS word. **AH HA MOMENT**  I could DIY one using my Cricut Expression and a software program called Make the Cut!

First I spray painted the 11 x 14 canvas board purchased from Hobby Lobby black.

While the canvas dried I went to work on laying out the words using the Make the Cut software. The software can no longer be purchased to use with Cricut but if you have any other di-cut machine your golden!

Being that I have two girls’, I have a good a mount of pink vinyl so I used it to make the stencil.You can use any color.

I wanted to use white for the letters but didn’t have any and didn’t want to go to the store to get any. I left the heart in LOVE covered because I wanted it red and sparkley, so that I could use red & red stickles to make it.  You can see where the vinyl didn’t stay adhered to the canvas so it leaked thru. I’ll leave it as if for now.
