Subway Art

I am moving slowly today, but I wanted to blog about my new favorite artistic medium…  Subway Art!  I got a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas 2014.  There is a large learning curve so it took me a while to make it really work for me.  I designed and made these two signs for Amanda and Marissa for Christmas.

I then worked up a piece using a line from a Beatles’ song — Let It Be.  I have a piece ready to ship tomorrow.  I like this one too!

…whisper Words of Wisdom…

And then I had a great epiphany… my favorite group, Chicago was inducted into the Rock & Roll HOF.  I found a website that listed their top 10 songs… so I made a piece with their top 10 songs listed..

I can do any type of lettering with my Cameo.  The only caveat is I need to be patient as layers dry.  Also… do not buy cheap contact paper — you will have to re-do again and again.  (ask me how I know that?!?!?!)

So, this is once again another way to express myself — and I think I’ve only touched the surface of all I will be able to do!!
