Valentine's Day Subway Art

I've had a couple questions about my Subway art, so I thought I would share how I did it. It was a really easy project. I was going to use some wood to make it, but I didn't have any laying around. I did have a 12x12" canvas that I hadn't done anything to, so I grabed that, and some red and white craft paint (I didn't have pink). I mixed the red and white paint until I found a pink color I liked. I painted two coats onto the canvas with a foam brush. Then I used my Cricut and cut out some words in vinyl. I didn't use transfer tape, so if you look close you can tell my letters aren't perfect. But I actually liked it that way. If you don't have a Silhouette or a Cricut you can just use stickers, or even just write some words on. And lastly, I used some distress ink to finish her off! 



Be creative, projects always turn out better when they have a little you tweaked into them! :)
