Subway Art (Attempted)


This is my first attempt at subway art.  I was real happy with this project right up until "Chardonnay" and then things just went sideways (literally.)    I spent a lot of time on this and now I just can't find the motivation to go back and fix it.  So I am posting my first attempt and hopefully soon I will post the fixed and finished project. 

Here is what I started with:

This was an old picture that had been sitting in the garage that I completely forgot about (you can see the picture is pealing off on one side.)  I peeled off the picture, what a pain, and then sprayed the board black.  I used The Make The Cut program for my Cricut to cut out the vinyl.


For some reason I always end up working on the floor when I craft - here are my materials:

Hopefully soon I will show you a finished product hanging on my newly painted kitchen wall.
Linking up to DIY Wine Linky Party

  2. I love, love, love this! I would love to showcase it on an upcoming wine post I'm putting together. Would you mind? I'll link it to you, obviously :). I have been attempting some Subway art as well. I don't even really know what Subway art is, but I've seen it all over blog land. I just did mine in Word, printed it on photo paper and framed it! Yours is very, very cute!

  4. I think it looks great! I just made a wine cork menu board and was seriously contemplating a "wine" theme for the whole kitchen and this project has sold it. Thanks so much for sharing!
