Subway Art - Hidden Gem

Hey everyone! While we're waiting for me to recuperate, how about another little project from my sister? I found this one hidden among the posts and realized it was never published out there for ya'll to enjoy! So, here you go!

Here's one last project from my C.S. (Crafty Sister). She's fallen in love with the blog Gardners 2 Bergers and is copying pretty much all of the ideas there. One of them was her subway art. 

She typed up all the fun places she and her hubs have been since they got married (so jealous) with her Microsoft Word program, changing fonts when she felt like it. Then had it printed in black and white for around $3 at Staples. She found a 24 x 36 canvas on sale and painted the sides of the canvas black and then Mod-Podged the paper onto the canvas.  

After that dried, she took some sandpaper and roughed up the edges and the words to give it a fun worn-out look. After she applied another coat of Mod-Podge to the top, she was ready to hang it up!And it turned out brilliant!

I'm so ready to tackle some fun projects but for now I will live vicariously through Crafty Sister. Hope you enjoy!
