Subway Art Signs

First off, thank you all who weighed in on what I should call myself!

From the funny to the sincere they were all great and now I, at the very least, feel prepared with all sorts of answers for all sorts of occasions!

I spent a good hunk of my weekend working on a new project/tutorial for the Mod Podge Rocks blog.  I had thought Amy was going to post it today but I guess I was wrong (she’s in the midst of moving so I can totally understand).  So, I’m afraid all I can offer is a little teaser.

I was pretty happy with it and am eager to share.

My goal was to create something cool but use mostly leftover bits (my continuing quest to clean up and clean out).  So with this diverse group of leftoversI made these subway art signs celebrating my two cities (NY and LA)

I will let you know as soon as the full tutorial gets posted.  They are pretty easy!

Also coming down the pike – new coaster designs, new HOME sign designs, a tray tutorial and who knows what else I can think up!

Hope everyone had a great long weekend.

About cheltenhamroad

I’ve been surrounded by amazingly creative people my whole life. My mom can, and does, make anything. The family has on occasion speculated that she just whipped up my dad one day when she discovered some left over fabric and stuffing. My three sisters have mad skills ranging from needlework to cooking to out and out ART. My father’s desk when I was growing up had a model train set going around it, oh, and he made that desk-from scratch. I’m the youngest and, as you can imagine, it’s a hard series of acts to follow. Truth be told, I’ve spent many, many years suppressing the creative instincts I learned at home. But I realized (rather late in life) that few things bring me more joy than making and creating. For the longest time when I went to stores I didn’t think, “I want that” I thought, “I can make that.” And, with a deep breath and a leap, I’ve started on a very new, kinda scary path. I’ve given up my steady, dependable (dull!) corporate life to spend my days happily humming away in my garage designing, creating, painting, decoupaging and sawing and, since this blog will be an honest take on things, there is also a fair amount of tripping, spilling and swearing. Through this blog I hope to share with you the struggles and (hopefully) triumphs of a very non-businessy business person. I also hope to make this blog a resource for people who like to work with their hands and who are, like me, always looking at things and thinking “I could make that!” I’ve lived many places since I left Cheltenham Road; I currently live in Los Angeles California. So, with this preamble- Welcome to Cheltenham Road! Please come on over and make yourself comfortable – the place is always open.

  3. These turned out super well. And to think that they were made up from left overs ….Goes right along with my philosophy of NEVER throwing ANYTHING out because you can make something else from those bits, even if it takes forever to come up with the idea (according to my husband). LOL

    How about Underground stations in London? I could see that one going home w/me! Your creativity has no limits! Keep those ideas flowing! Looking forward to seeing the tutorial posted on Mod Podge Rocks!
