Christian theme subway art

Before we talk about my new subway art, let me remind you of a great giveaway I have going on right now. Beach City Boutique Bath and Body Products is giving away a $15 gift certificate. Go enter for a chance to pamper yourself.

I know I was late jumping on the subway art bandwagon but I had so much fun with my Halloween subway art, I had to make another one. This time I made one I could display year round.



I used the Making Memories Slice "Faith"  cartridge for most of the words. I cut two crosses with my Silhouette and also cut the words Savior and Holy Bible with the Silhouette. I used papers from We R Memory Keepers Grandma's Kitchen pad and some solid color Bazzill cardstock.


I started with a blank 16x20 canvas. I painted it with Apple Barrel antique white acrylic paint. I adhered the words and crosses with Mod Podge and then coated the entire thing a couple of times with it. I brushed some brown around the edges after I adhered the words to make them pop a little more.


I'm pleased with it and I'll be displaying it on my mantel. I'll share my new mantel decor a little later.
