Here’s another bit of Christmas décor to brighten up my home this holiday season…

Festive Subway Art:

You can download the jpeg for this RIGHT HERE if you’d like to use it!

If you’d like to make your own, using the festive words you like, then here’s how I made mine…

Step 1: Open a blank white photo in PicMonkey, and resize it to 1240 x 1754 px (the resize option is on the menu on the left):

1

Step 2: Choose the ‘Tt’ option from the far left menu, which takes you to the font menu. Click on a font style you like, then click the ‘Add Text’ button, and type a word.You can change the colour on the text edit box:

Step 3: Keep filling up with words, using different fonts, colours, and sizes. You can make sure you use the same colours as a previous word by using the 6 digit colour code in the text edit box (I’ve put a red oval round it in the photo below), just double click on it to type in the code you need:

Step 4: Once you’ve done all your words, you can use shapes to fill any small gaps, I used yellow stars. The shape option on the far left menu is a butterfly, this will take you to the shape menu. You can change the colour like you did with the text:

Step 5: When you are happy with it, print it off at A4 and put it in a frame:

Or you can always print it smaller to use in a mini-album, project life, or on a card!

Be Inspired:

Use a variety of different fonts for a page title or sentiment

Fill in some gaps with stars

Use PicMonkey to edit or create something

(I’m not affiliated with PicMonkey, I just love it!)

Have you ever made Subway art before?

 See you in an hour! Jennifer x
