Valentine Subway Art

So what is Subway Art?  It's a bunch of text in different fonts...all text doesn't have to be going in the same direction, it can be rotated, in different colors, there may even be graphics added with the text.  Subway Art has become pretty popular in Home Decor lately, and after creating this Valentine Subway Art, I can see why!  It's addictive!

I used the Silhouette Studio Software to create my text, adding different words relating to Valentine's Day, changing the fonts, text size and rotating the text as I went along.  For the cupid image, I uploaded a piece of clip art and used the trace feature in the Silhouette Software to create a cut file.  I also manipulated the LOVE YOU file that comes with the Silhouette Software.  I ungrouped the Love You Bubble, removed the bubble, then copied the heart so I could  manipulate it for the bottom left; regrouped the Love You and fit both images in with my other text.  The images and text are cut from Ruby Red Vinyl using the Silhouette Cameo, then added them to the glass using Transfer Tape.

Here's the same project, this time I inserted a piece of Memory Box pattern paper between the two glass panels.


CraftVinyl has some awesome prices on vinyl and other products for use with cutting machines.  (I'm not affiliated with them, just a happy customer!)  They are currently offering 20% off to new customers (some exclusions apply), they also have a drawing to enter to win a free Silhouette Cameo!

If you're looking for more Valentine ideas, be sure to stop back on Tuesday for the Creations by AR DT Blog Hop, we're featuring new templates and have some giveaways planned!

Thanks for stopping by - off to find something else to alter!  Have a great day!
