Winter Subway Art

I love typography and have for as long as I can remember. I think it probably started in the 7th grade, when Mrs. Resnick, my art teacher taught me calligraphy. It definitely continued when I had the good fortune to study typography for a couple of semesters under the guidance of Martin Solomon at Parson's School of Design. (He really knew type, and you know his work. The typographical logos he designed for Hyundai, R. J. Reynolds Tobacco, Fisher Price, and Volvo Automobiles are recognized worldwide).

A conversation taking place on the OWH Facebook Wall in the past couple of days got me thinking about Subway Art and led me to sit down and create this piece. Once it was complete making this card was a matter of printing the graphic and adding a layer and some shimmering ribbon. The embossing folder is called Snowflakes and is by Cuttlebug.



My work keeps me at the computer for most of the day but when I'm designing something for myself it's a totally different experience than when I'm working on a project for a client. I thoroughly enjoy the freedom that comes with not having to worry about pleasing a group of people with divergent tastes and not having to justify why something should be done one way and not another. That being said I you don't have to love type as much as I do,  but if you like Subway Art, here's the graphic for you to use and I do hope you like it. 



Just remember that you may use my freebies in any of your personal crafting projects but if you'd like to share it with others I ask that you post a link back to this post so that they can come and download it and see this usage policy. Please do not sell it in any form, repost it,  pin it or claim it as your own. If you want to pin my card, please do and then you will always be able to find your way back to the digi when you're ready to use it. Just click on it and then use the 'download linked file' or 'save as' command to save it to your computer. 



Happy Crafting!

This is lovely, Paula. I didn't know what subway art, or wordle, was until I saw these FB posts. Then I started Googling...and I even doodled around a bit on my own. It is NOT easy. Thank you for sharing. I shall use it today for a OWH card.
