Here’s what I’ve been working on for the past week or so.

I’m so excited to show it to you!

 pick a board

It started off as a board that’s been sitting in my garage.
I used a smaller board in the Fall for my Halloween Subway Art,

but decided to go even bigger for Valentine’s Day.

Then last week I went out to lunch with one of my BFF’s Shelley from House of Smiths. We had such a great time. Eating, then shopping. We even ran into another blogging friend – Kirsten!

6th Street Design School

We found a beautiful rug for her living room and I told Shelley about my subway art project. She invited me to come over and design it in her super fabulous vinyl program and helped me print it out! Shelley designed this awesome background and I did the lettering. It was a fun collaboration.

And then at the end of the night we rocked out in her car to this song.

So much fun!!!

The next day I painted the board gray and then applied the background vinyl.

I also had some left over molding in my garage, so I cut it to size and glued it onto the board.

 Then I painted over the vinyl with a metallic paint.

 Once that was dry, I peeled off the design and was left with this gorgeous pattern!! Love it!!
before the vinyl
I had to bring it over to Shelley’s so she could see it before I put the vinyl on! And we hung it up over at her house – we were so excited to see it all done!!!

  Then I applied the vinyl. And painted the middle board with the “love” on it. I love how it stands out!! I applied the “love” board with 3M removeable adhesive strips.

I love it so much that I think I’m going to make another that I can keep out all year.

You can make one for yourself using your Silhouette, or if you want to save some time and frustration, Shelley is going to be selling the vinyl for this project in her Wonderfully Wordy shop.  And all you would need to do is paint your board and put the vinyl on.
