DIY Subway Art - No Die Cutter Required!

This subway art was created using street names printed out from Word, Mod Podge, and paint. It's so easy to make, and you don't need a fancy die cutter.

    I love the subway pictures, but they are too expensive to buy and I didn't want to purchase all size of stencils. I doubt I would have time to do what you did, but I may try someday!

    We did something similar, and made it relevant to our area, by using the names of the demolished casinos in Las Vegas. I had a reprographic company cut the stencil that I made in MS Publisher ($20...cheaper than buying stencils), scaling to fit an artist's canvas. Very easy, and total project was about $35...much less than the $200 they want for these paintings at galleries!
