Are you sick of so-called Subway Art yet? I admit, I am starting to tire of seeing it on so many craft blogs. But, I did try a slightly different take on it for one of my Associated Press craft stories. Instead of a list of places, house rules or inspirational words like I’ve seen elsewhere, I used amusing quotes from my friend’s four-year-old twins (that he had posted on Facebook) and gave the canvases to him as a gift. As I mention in the article, I’m as guilty as anyone else when it comes to posting cute things my kid says on Facebook. So why not take those quotes and put them on the wall?
The article includes a brief tutorial on how I made mine, and other options if you don’t have a Silhouette machine (you could get the same look just printing the art and gluing it to a canvas). The friend I gave these to liked them so much that he wants two more!
