Spring Subway Art Prints

Welcome Spring!


This clip from Disney's Bambi beautifully captures the wonder of spring.  It reminds me of watching my own children in wonder as they watched the world come awake around them.  What a truly magical time.


There are so many wonderfully descriptive words for spring that it was tough to choose only a few.  In the end, I used words that encompass the senses of spring:  hearing the birds melodious songs and the sound of the rain; feeling the warmth of the sun; seeing the bright and beautiful flowers in bloom; smelling the air right after a rain shower; and the sweet smells of flowers, trees in blossom, and newly cut grass. 


For personal use only

*If you'd like to feature the subway art (I'd love it if you did!), I ask that you please not post the prints themselves on your blog.  It takes me a long time to design them and I like to keep them here. :)  You are welcome to use any of the pictures or the image above. 

*If you print one, would you mind clicking on 'going on my list of things to do' in the comment section?   It's fun to see how many of you are printing them and Google Analytics has really got me stumped. ;)  Thanks!











 

The digital papers that I used were offered for free online.  I don't know the original sources, so thanks to all of you who offer them for free for all of us to enjoy!
To download: You must first click on the image to open it in a new window in it's highest resolution.  Right click on the image and either copy and paste it into a document (to size and then print), or click on save image as to save it to your computer.  You will need to size it before you print.
To size the prints:   The prints look will look the best printed as an 8x10 or 4"x5" (for a card), but can be stretched to other sizes if you insert them into a document using a program like Microsoft Word/Publisher or Photo shop.  Insert the image, click on it, then drag the sides of the image to the size that you want.  (A 5x7 will look a bit stretched with this design.) 
You can print them on white or colored card stock, scrapbook paper, or (for the best quality) on photo paper.  (Check your dollar store for photo paper, I found a package of 8- 8x10 sheets for $1.)

*For even more color and digital paper choices, read through this tutorial on
 How to recolor a subway art image.
(You can see examples of some of the images that I recolored in the prints above.)

I absolutely love the subway art that you make and so kindly share. I just printed the spring artwork and added it to my table that I decorate for each season/holiday. I used your St. Patrick's Day art and received so many nice comments! Thanks so much for sharing these with us. I'm sure it's a lot of work! I'll send you a link once I get my post up!!

These are soo great!!! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

Joleen said...

The Subway art that you put together are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing them!
I was wondering if you could share some links to your favorite free digital paper sites? I'm having a hard time finding the kind of cute stuff you use. Thanks! :D

Janet said...

In reply to Joleen: I'm actually very lucky in that my sister and her friend spent hours and hours a few years back compiling 19 cd's full of free digital scrapbook pages and elements from the internet that she shared with me. Most of the papers were released for everyone 6 or 7 years ago, and don't have sources saved with them so it's hard to know where they came from.

There's a site called Shabby Princess that has a lot of great free digital scrapbooking kits. I've used some of their elements and papers on prints that I've posted. http://www.shabbyprincess.com/downloads.asp

If you run a Google search for 'free digital scrapbooking kits' and then click to view the images it's easy to see at a glance what they are offering for free. You'll find a lot of free paper and elements this way.

Another thing to keep in mind is to search for the pattern and not necessarily the color. The color can be changed. Good luck with your search, I hope this helped some!

Joleen said...

Thank you for the paper info!!! :D

Erin said...

Gorgeous! Thank you so much for making the red/black one...even those of us who like black as an accent can be people who decorate seasonally! (I did fun stuff with the St. Patrick's Day one, even if I never got back to my neglected blog!) I'll be printing this one when we get back from vacation...thanks!

Mia said...

Want to thank you for the inspiration I got from your Subway Art. I am patting myself on the back because I now have 3 perfect gifts (well actually 4, cause I'm giving me one too) for Christmas. I used Publisher to create my "masterpiece", but may tweek it. Thank you again for the inspiration for my creation.

Anonymous said...

I've never really been interested in this kind of art....until I saw this! I'm inspired! Don't know yet exactly HOW I'm going to use it, but I definitely will! I'm not a blogger...just a looker and do-er, so I didn't know what to pick when it says "Comment as" so I just picked anonymous. Wish I knew more about this stuff!! Thanks for your inspiration!

Marcia said...
