Merry New Year to you! We’re three days into the new year so I figure it’s time to officially write down my goals (aka resolutions) for 2013. I came across this subway art on pinterest and thought it was a great starting place:
Color + inspirational words = my kind of subway art! While these are great reminders, regardless of the time of year, I thought it would help to hone in on some concrete goals as well. A wise boss once said, “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan.” *Per Google, it appears my wise boss borrowed this quote from Jim Rohn so thanks Jim and wise boss for the words of wisdom.
In searching for fabulous subway art, I stumbled upon a photo editing program, called picmonkey, that allows one to create subway art as well. The font choices, color combos and effects options are a plenty. I decided to create my own set of subway art resolutions this year to display in a frame. Maybe if my resolutions are pretty, legible and in plain eye sight, I’ll be more likely to accomplish them this year — at least it’s worth a shot.
Without further ado, here are my 2013 resolutions in the form of subway art:
Have to admit, I had so much fun creating this art I decided to create one to sum up the 2012 holidays as well. This time I used a program called “Wordle.” It was extremely easy to use, once I downloaded the java plug-in correctly. The customization was not as abundant as picmonkey, but the font choices and layout options were pretty decent. Here’s a little subway art to sum up my 2012 holidays:
Lastly, I decided to create a little something special for my mom today. Using picmonkey, I created subway art to the song, “You Are My Sunshine.” Mom used to sing this song to my siblings and I when we had difficulty sleeping at night. This might be a birthday gift in the making:
I got a little carried away with the multiple frames, but I was having so much fun I couldn’t stop! I created another version that’s frameless. Not sure how I feel about the background color, but definitely love how the words pop.
And that wraps up my segment on 2013 resolutions & subway art. Curious to hear if you’re a fan of subway art. If so, have you created an original piece? Which program/s did you use?
