Inspired by the old bus canvas signs subway art / typography is a lovely finishing touch for any room.
I love quotes how lovely to have in your home something on your wall to see everyday that inspires you and is personal to you.
I really wanted to have ago myself so i searched the Internet and found a wonderful tutorial on a lovely blog called clean and sensible where she shows step by step how to make one yourself.
I don't have a silhouette cutter as is used in the tutorial so i ordered pre cut vinyl letters such as number plate stickers. I painted each canvas shown in the photos first with a lighter coloured base coat varying the shade in places to give the worn look when later revealed.
Once the base coat had dried I then carefully spaced the vinyl letters and painted over the top in the same tone but darker shade than the base. I did not add the paint too thickly or evenly as i wanted a vintage look. Once dry carefully remove the letters.
If you don't fancy having a go at making your own i have also found some very lovely inexpensive ones at Bill and Betty's that are definately worth a look.
I hope i have inspired you please feel free to comment and follow me as i love to get to know fellow bloggers x
