Challenge #9 Subway Art

I'm so exited for this next challenge. Besides being a scrapbooking addict I have a little obsession with Pinterest.  As I was browsing a few months ago I started noticing a trend of Subway art in Home decor products and craft projects. I started thinking about how I'd like to make something of my own and then the idea popped into my head that this style would translate really well onto a scrapbook page. Here are a few samples of some of the products I've seen in stores:

Also if you need more ideas I created a pinboard of just subway art so you can have a lot of ideas to choose from. Here are a few of my favorites though:

This one is from a blog called Infarrantly Creative

Letterpress Poem Art Print. ...Our story will always read LOVE. 
This one is from a shop on Etsy called Sycamorestreetpress

I hope this will help you get the wheels turning! And last but not least here are the pages made by our talented team members. I love all of the different directions that everyone went with it and I can't wait to see what all of you do.
