Here is mine:
The Silhouette Online Store has subway art for everything...chores, coffee, cocktails and even Black Friday...but nothing for pantry. I wanted to put something on my pantry door, and I wanted that something to be subway art. So I made it myself. It was easier than I thought (except for the installation but I'll get to that).
I downloaded some random kitchen utensil designs and opened the Design Studio (sorry about not having pictures). Then I just added words to a 8.5 x 10 space. I used varying fonts and sizes, filling in empty spaces with pictures of kitchen-y items.
Learn from my lesson...save it BEFORE cutting it. My netbook froze up after cutting out the design while I was peeling away the vinyl not needed. I can't reprint this one ever again.... :(
Installation is usually pretty easy with vinyl appliques. But I was doomed from the get go. I had a touch of vertigo last night. As a result I had a little problem getting it straight. I was able to peel it away a few times (thank goodness) and readjust. I think this is what caused the sticking problem I was having afterwards...or lack of sticking I should say. It was tedious...but I got it all adhered. The whisk was a...you know what!
All in all..VERY happy with the result. My husband pointed out that I used the exact font the Nutella company uses on their packaging. I would love to say that was intentional, but it was a happy coincidence.
What do you think?? Pretty awesome, huh?
