Subway art, it's DONE!

i can honestly say i am probably more thrilled with how this DIY subway art project turned out than any other DIY i've done!
i found a canvas that fit the saying i wanted to paint, i painted the canvas turquoise, cut out contact paper letters with my cricut, stuck them on, painted black over all of it, let it dried, peeled the letters, stamped some stars, and hung that baby up!
 (yes that ID in the top corner is my TV turned to my favorite channel, full of those crime shows i'm addicted to!)
 i used an old credit card to spread the paint, i actually did 2 different colors of turquoise and left it a little splotchy.

 i was so inspired after this project i did a couple small paintings.  as i was doing the subway art above, i realized that i would never be able to put these in my shop (chinamommy ) due to the cost of labor alone...it took a long time to stick all those letters on that canvas people!
so, instead of words, i did birds!
yep, i stuck a bird on it!
turquoise and brown
 and another in turquoise and black
 shabby cottage style all ready to hang! both will be in my shop soon!
if you try the subway art, leave a link in the comments so we can check it out!  if you have any questions, let me know and i'll try to answer it!
~happy tuesday~
