Today I’m sharing a project with you that I’ve been wanting to do for ages – a family monogram for our front door.
This file was so easy to put together and it’s so much fun designing and coming up with new ideas.
There is just the one file that I used, but manipulated it a little by stretching it to fit my space and also mirroring it. I drew an oval in the centre and then made an inline where I wanted our initial to go. I love the Brock Script font, it always looks classy.
To make this design easy to transfer I moved both swirls closer to the oval and then welded them so it would all be one piece.
The text for our surname uses the font Charlemagne Std.
When using vinyl that I want straight I always rule lines on the transfer tape before lifting off my mat. I used a white chalk ink marker on our door to line up where I wanted my design to go and then the ruled lines on the transfer paper lined up with those on the door and made placement very straightforward.
There are loads of fun swirls and damask files in the craft room to get your creative minds going to design your own family monogram. Think outside the box and multiply files and then weld them together for a continuous design.
