I love this type of art!
I see them everywhere, and you can write anything that you like.
There are many ways that you can make this type of artwork. I have seen them done by creating it on the computer and printing it out. Stenciling it. Free hand. So many ways.
Of course, I chose the most time consuming one......lol
But so worth it, I think.
Take a look, and try one out. You will love it.
It goes perfectly in the corner of my kitchen.
These are subway stops in the city.
HERE IS HOW TO DO IT.
Get yourself a board the size that you want the art to be. I had this 1/8inch board on hand and thought I would use this. My board size is approx. 36 inches by 14 inches. I used black acrylic paint. One coat was enough for my board.
I picked a font and a font size that I liked and printed the letters on plain old white paper.
Cut out all my letters that I needed.
Decide on spacing and measure and mark where you want to place the letters.
I used scotch tape to mark my line. I did not want to mark the black paint.
I traced the letters on blank paper, and started cutting my little heart out.
A lot of cutting! But think of it as relaxing, and mindless.....lol
Podged the letters on. I tried to evenly space them as best I could. Continued on, and voila! Done.
When I completed the whole thing, I put a layer of podge all over to seal it. I used a matte finish.
My board is so thin that I could not screw in any hooks to hang it. So I decided to put in these screws and I screwed it right to the wall. I was going to paint them black to blend in with the background, but I think they look pretty cool the way they are. So I left them.
So what do you guys think?
