Well, January was a complete blur! And here we are in February already. We’ve got the Superbowl just around the corner and Valentine’s Day in just a couple of weeks. It’s been many, many, many moths since I pulled out the Mod Podge and so to try and jump start my creativity…which has been nearly non-existent as of late…I decided to make a piece of Subway Art and add a little something to my also non-existent Valentine’s Day decorations. It’s not going to stop traffic or win any awards but it was fun to do.
Here is how I did it:
First, I put together a bunch of words that I associated with Valentine’s Day in a Word document. Then I played around with the font and the size of the letters. I printed it out and then…VERY IMPORTANT… I sent it to work with my husband to have it copied on a real copier. Regular home printer ink will run when you put the Mod Podge on it. You need to have a copy made from toner from a regular copy machine and then your ink won’t run.
I took a blank canvas that I had and applied several coats of bright red paint and then let it dry on the floor over the register. :)
Then I took out my scissors…my red scissors because it’s a Valentine’s Day project :) …and I did a twisty curvy cut around all the words and phrases. Let your scissors do the work and move the paper with your other hand while you cut. I applied a coat of Mod Podge to the entire canvas and then started to place all the cut out words and phrases on the canvas and went over them with another coat of Mod Podge and made sure every thing adhered well. Let dry. DONE!
Hmm, I just noticed on the 2nd line that “cupid” is folded over. Augh! Time to make a quick repair.
