Family Subway Art

I'm so excited, I just got a new Silhouette Cameo!  For those of you who don't know what that is, it's a cutting machine and software program to design and cut just about anything.  Including paper, fabric, vinyl, and that's just the surface of what else this machine can do!   As you can see, I was so excited to start using it!   To start, I took an old piece of scrap plywood out in the garage and painted it white.  I than found a bunch of coordinating craft paper.  Finally, I got to put the Silhouette to use.  I cut out all of our names and a few other family words to fill in.  After my words were done, I played around with the layout before attaching them for good.  When I happy with my layout, I took one word off at a time and put a light coat of Mod Podge down on my plywood.  After putting the letters back on, I applied another coat of Mod Podge over the top.  There was one open spot where I added a few fabric flowers.
It was a good way to experiment with my new toy!
