Love Languages




This week I am working on some projects for our elementary school's annual Art Gala. My son's teacher asked me to make a piece of artwork to represent their class for the Art Fair, and another piece for the silent auction. She gave me free reign to do whatever I'd like. I chose to create my take on subway art. This one will represent their class and I've titled it....."Love Languages".





I bought a full sheet of half inch plywood and had it cut into (4) 24 x 36 inch pieces. You could also opt to buy the precut pieces of plywood. They come in 2ft x 4ft lengths. I used flat black spray paint on two and a satin brush on paint for the other two. I definitely like the flat better for this project.




This was my first time using my Cricut with the SCAL software on my computer. I first downloaded 9 different basic fonts from Dafont. This site is awesome.....they have hundreds of free downloadable fonts to choose from. Then I typed out my words in all these lovely languages, pushed a button, and just like that my cricut and my computer worked together to make magic with vinyl! I have been nervous to try SCAL, thinking for some reason it would be hard. It was sooooooooo not hard! It was amazing and I cannot wait to use it for many other projects.



I am so stinkin excited with how this turned out......I really L.O.V.E. it!
Tomorrow I will show you the piece I am making for the silent auction. It is very similar. In fact, I think the two of them together would make the most fabulous grouping on the wall. Very Pottery Barn-ish.

I've been thinking of doing a word part myself. I'm debating where it would go since our walls are full of my art.
