Subway Sign {Art} Inspiration

I'm working on a new wall art project that was inspired by Carrie at Buzzings of a Queen Bee. You can check out her homemade subway sign tutorial here and see a picture below:


I love her idea of a personalized subway sign and knew I wanted to make one for myself. The problem is that I don't have a steady enough hand to do stencils and fill them in with a paint pen. I just know I would end up messing it up somehow so Zak and I have been trying to think of alternative ways to make our own. I think we have found a solution that works for us but I can't bring it to fruition until I find the right frame. I am certain that if I can find time to stop at Goodwill that I will find one and hopefully finish my project by this weekend.

Meanwhile, here are some other inspiring subway signs that I had in mind when designing my own:
