My First Subway Art Project!

Hi Everyone!

Today I wanted to share with you my first "Subway Art" Project! I got this hard 9x12 canvas for free from Michaels a few months ago and was just holding onto it until I could figure out what to do with it.

I thought it would work great for something Valentine's Day and I had a bunch of red vinyl I was trying to use up. I created all the words with fonts from my computer and placed the words where I wanted them.

My problem came when I tried to adhere the vinyl to the canvas. IT WON'T STICK!! I was so annoyed but wasn't giving up. I actually went word by word and put a thin layer of modge podge underneath. Unfortunately, not everything ended up super straight because it slipped around but now it is dry and not going anywhere.

I definitely love the look of it and I have some ideas for my kitchen and other areas using this technique. I just need to figure out what is going to work best!

Oh well... live, learn and then try it again a different way :-)

Have a great day!

Looks good. I remember getting one of those canvases too. I think my daughter took mine. Love the fonts.
