My Attempt at Subway Art

These are my sisters' Christmas gifts-
We were trying to scale back as much as possible & only give to the kids
But they always do so much for my girls so I wanted to give them something
meaningful & unique

This is my first attemp at my own unique style of
Subway Art

I used favorite song/artists for the quotes.
We all love music so much

This one is George Michael's "waiting for that day"

These started out as canvases that I purchased at Michaels-3 pack for $8.00 i think?
I painted it with acrylic paint.
I dont have any organized way of doing this I just go.......
For this one I used blue & white to get the weathered look
I cut lyrics out with my cricut & stamped some too
Covered it all with a coat of Mod Podge

This one is "all you need it love" by the Beatles!

Now looking back at this, I think I would have added more words to them
But I love the way they turned out
I love the pop of red I used with the green & the blue!

Let me know what you think!
