Maya Angelou Quote Tile

This was a special request from a friend of mine from high school.  It is on an 18" tile.  Yup.  It's big!  You definitely need a large place to put one of these.  I created the words in my SCAL2 program and the floral swirl in the bottom left corner is from SVGCuts. The words are in black vinyl and the flower is in a matte silver vinyl.  (I get most of my vinyl from H&H Sign Supply.)  The color of the silver is not accurate in this top photo since the flash reflected off of it.
 A close up of the floral corner to show the true color of the silver vinyl.
I hope you enjoy it!

  8. I find inspirations and hope in Maya Angelou quotes. And one of my favorite quotes of her is this:
    "If you don’t like something, change it.
    If you can’t change it, change your attitude."
