Subway Signs

I originally found the idea for Subway Sign Art on Tatertots & Jello and just had to make some for our master bedroom. I used words that described husband & wife, and little sayings, songs, and places that were important to us.

My method involved printing out the words using Helvetica font on my printer. I painted a canvas white and mod podged the on the word strips. I then put a couple coats of mod podge over the word strips to seal everything. I ended up with a lot of bubbles and I didn't like how I could see the edges of the paper against the canvas. To hide those I took tan craft paint and dry brushed over the entire canvas. It ended up giving it a distressed look that I loved.

I'll be linking this up to the Subway Art Party @ Tatertots & Jello


  1. Great job! I've been seeing so much subway art lately and need to jump on that band wagon! haha!

  2. I am really loving the different interpretations that have been used with subway art. I love your take on it.

  3. So cute! I love that you used white with black letters. And that you used words that mean something to you and your husband. Great job!

    Thanks for linking up to my Subway Art Party!


  4. So I think this is the cutest thing! I also am guessing from the words that you and your husband met at EFY? I met my boyfriend at EFY, Hopefully we'll make it too! And again soo cute!
