Becca was inspired by Z Gallerie's Subway art series, but not impressed with the $250 price tag. She made her own version in a few simple steps.

Becca used her word program on her computer to design the list and picked a few fonts that seemed classic and fit the travel vibe. She also decided to used favorite vacation spots for her "stops." I love this idea!

She had a black and white oversized print made at Staples for $3.40, then used ModPodge to adhere it to a thick canvas. She used a variety of tools to get the smeared, distressed look of her Z Gallerie inspiration

I think it turned out beautiful for a fraction of the price. See all of Becca's detailed tutorial on her blog, From Gardeners 2 Bergers.
