Hey, Howdy & Hello!!!
Today's post is brought to you by "Subway Art"
I searched and searched to find the definition of 
Subway Art and couldn't really come up with much.

So here is my definition
subway art, n. 1. placing and arranging related words, in random fonts to form art.

Our FAB DT has been playing with this topic and I can't wait to show you what they've come up with.

Julie made this adorable  Camp-A-Lot Canvas.  
She says she loves Subway Art and the personal meaning behind it.  
What a fun project to display and brighten up your home this summer!!
Julie also gives us a GREAT TIP and said...
"Don't always grab the unused papers in your scrapbook stash! For my canvas, I mostly made this using scraps I had left-over from a layout and cards I had made using this collection!"

Supplies Used
Pattern Paper: Camp-A-Lot 6x6 paper pad, and
Camp-A-Lot 12" Fireflies,  Sunset, Squares, Starry Night 
Noteworthy: Camp-A-Lot
Stickers: Fireside Fun, 
Nature's Playground, Combo
Buttons: Camp-A-Lot


Robbie said, "Although this layout has a lot going on, it is really quick and easy to put together."
See below for tips to making this layout quick and easy....

1. To start, I used an electronic cutter to cut out my title. I wasn't really picky about where it ended up, because I planned to just work around it. I did make a point to leave the center of my layout empty.

2. Using lots of stickers makes layouts quick and easy to put together. To add intrest and make layering easy, just use lots of foam dots. You can see this in the close-up pictures.

3. Use the cut outs to add instant shapes. Since they already have such neat shapes printed, 
just choose one and cut along the edges.

4. The yellow banner piece of paper was one that I had cut to small for another layout. I save my large scraps, so I just pulled it out and added it to this layout.

5. Finally, to get the look of stitching or bordering without taking much time, just add holes at the corners and stopping points instead of actually making a lot of stitches.

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Hello Sunshine Little Things, Daydream and Cut Outs
Cardstock: Double Dot Designs Chiffon Dot
Ribbon: Double Dot Designs Burnt Orange
Stickers: Hello Sunshine Combo, Lazy Days and Hot Hot Hot
Petals: Hello Sunshine
