Here's how I did it...
I started with a blank canvas that I painted with two coats of Restoration Hardware Baby and Child Petal Pink, which is the color on the accent wall in my daughter's room.
Using my Silhouette machine, I cut out all of the words I wanted to use onto white vinyl.
Then I used clear contact paper as my transfer paper. The best thing about the contact paper is that I could continue to move the words until I got the right layout. The only difficult part was lining everything up to make it into a perfect rectangle.
Once I was happy with the placement of all the letters, I used a card and I rubbed over each of the letter and then carefully pulled away the contact paper. I used this card which was from some vinyl letters I bought a few years ago, but you could just use a credit card or a popsicle stick.
Then using a frame I had in the closet, I put the canvas upside down in the frame and secured it using duck tape. For now I left the glass in the frame. I like how it looks, although it made it much more difficult to get a decent photo.
It goes perfectly with the new "tween" look of the room.
I love how it came out.
Let me know what you think of my version of Subway Art.
Have a great weekend.
