Valentine Subway Art

Good Day!

Well for a weather update...still rainy and cold. Yuck.

I did make it to the gym yesterday...aiming for a repeat performance today. The last six months I've been neglectful in exercising.

Today's share is what is termed subway art. I've been making lots of these to match each season or holiday. The word art file is from Silhouette Studio.

I go to the local craft store...whoever has the white canvases on sale. Last time I bought seven in a package and I think that worked out to about $2.00 per canvas. They are 16 x 20.

Painted it a pretty pink...trying to use all my tole paints that have been neglected as well.

Now I have a confession to make. For Christmas I got a new cutting machine...the Cameo Silhouette.
Does it cut nice....For anybody out there who is a quilter (Pam) it cuts material as well....

The wording is cut out of red vinyl. The machine can cut very intricate details perfectly. I'm truly impressed. You can also do your own designing and patterns on it. Anyway you can see how narrow the boxes are around some of the words and there was no problem with the cutting!
My house is so decorated for Valentines Day! First year for me to really decorate it. Last year I did make a Valentine's Day wreath for the front door.
