Halloween Subway Art - Tried it out Thursday


I'm so excited to share my Halloween subway art with you.  I finished this up earlier this week. This is my first try at subway art and I am hooked! Even my hubby likes this and is impressed.




I took a 16X20 canvas (purchased from Big Lots for $5) and painted it black with acrylic paint. I cut out the words with my Silhouette SD using various fonts. I love fonts and have collected quite a few. Here are the ones used for my subway art:

Juice ITC
Franklin Gothic Heavy
Vampiress
Signboard
Jester
Exotc350
Groovy Ghosties

I don't remember the source of each one, but if you don't have them on your computer already a good place to look is dafont.com and acidfonts.com. I cut my letters from Making Memories Spook Alley and mustard and grey cardstock. I added a couple of punched spiders. The moon, tree limb, and bat are a download from Silhouette. I used Mod Podge to apply the letters and then coated the entire thing with Mod Podge once I finished adhering the letters.
