Ye Olde Cricut Subway Art

I was inspired by this creative gal here and this talented gal here to make this... 
Halloween Subway Art!

My first attempt was a flop-o-rama!

FYI:  Using clear contact paper to stencil letters with craft paint doesn't work.  Paint sticks to stencil not background.

I attempted the project a second time (I was mad and determined to make this project work!).  I didn't want to handpaint, or buy 6+ colors of $9.99 a piece, never on sale, Cricut Vinyl and Contact Shelf Liner doesn't come in tons of fun colors.

Enter Ye Olde  Glossy Mod Podge and colored card stock!

1.Cut letters and shapes and letters out of colored cardstock using your Cricut. (I used the Plantin Schoolbook, Songbird, Home Decor, and Pumpkin Carving cartridges)

2.  Stick each letter and shape to the background with a little mod podge (I used glossy).

3.  Get rid of any air bubbles by firmly sealing the paper with a roller.

4.  Coat the entire board with a layer of Mod Podge (do not add water, it'll creat bubbles).  Let dry.

5.   Add several more coats of Mod Podge until you're sure cardstock is completely sealed.

WAH LAH...you have a wonderful, old school, much cheaper than Cricut Vinyl,
Subway Halloween Art Board!

I'll be linking this project up with...

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. It really makes my day!

Sorry about the word verification--my blog was hijacked not too long ago, so now I have to take robo-cautions.
