Finally I can post on http://paintpartyfriday.blogspot.com after running around so much this week! I wanted to do my own spin on some subway art for this blank space in my living room. So I bought a canvas that was on sale at Hobby Lobby and painted it black first. Then I decided what quote I wanted to use and I used my Cricut machine and cut the letters using contact paper. I used a removable one so I could get them straight and move them if I needed to. Then I just had some fun! I used acrylics, but I have to say I love oils for a big canvas like this because they move around and blend so much better. I even used some walnut ink and sprayed it here and there.After it was dry I took the letters off I did use some sandpaper just a tad to knock down some of the black in the letters so they wouldn't look so solid. I then used some black soft pastel around the edges of the canvas and sprayed it with a workable fixative. I still need to add a protective sealant on it but it's so rainy and blah here today I'll wait till a better day.
