Hi. I'm Christine. And I am addicted to making subway art.
The first step is admitting there is a problem, I guess. The thing is, I wonder... is it really a "problem?"
Really good friends of ours just moved into their first house, and I was "moved" to make them something for their home.
I edited out their last name for privacy with Picasa.
I spray painted this metal sign with Krylon Dual in black. When it was dry, I picked out words and made them out of white vinyl with my Silhouette. The antique key is actually a favorite image from The Graphics Fairy.
All I did was download it to the Silhouette Studio, and then set it up to trace and cut the outline of the image. I really love that I could add that, and the cute little heart.
I have got to show you what this started out as...
Hee hee....not so much, huh? Not that I have anything against fishing! Just this sign (just joking).
My friend found this at Christmas Tree Shops one day when we were shopping. It was in a clearance bin for $ 1.47! It's a nice heavy duty metal sheet--all ready to hang on a wall.
It was a perfect beginning for this project. I'm so happy that I could turn it into something fantastic for our wonderful friends!
