Creating A Plan: Homemade Subway Art

I am currently devising a plan for my summer mantel. I am not sure I am ready to change my spring mantel to summer as I feel spring has just arrived here in Northeast Pennsylvania, but then I see that it is almost June so then it seems ok. I am planning what I want to do…I just love to plan (just about anything really). I have jotted notes and pictures and such trying to figure of how I want to create my mantle. Here’s a cool inspiration photo for your viewing pleasure:

Isn’t that nice? My theme will be beachy as well although I plan to use more vivid colors.  I am working on the artwork I plan to displayright now - as a matter of fact, here’s something I made yesterday for this purpose:

I admire all the subway art put there and just figured it would be easy to create it myself rather than buy it…I am not spending the money if I don’t have to! I think this cost maybe 50 cents to create – and that estimate may be high :o)
I have one project to finish this wekeend and then hoping to get started on putting my mantel all together soon…you know I will share!
