"We're In This Together "Sign

I love the typography trend.

Artful lettering is so full of expression

in design and sentiment.

Pin It!
So a simple 1 x 8 board 6' long

is straight forward with the heartfelt expression,

"We're in this Together".

Here is my script pattern for you to use:

Pin It!

Because Life is a journey

and marriage is a blessing

it always comes back to the commitment

that "We're in this together".

I layered white paint over a brown base.

Pencil transfer the letters,

then use a small flat brush,

keeping it on it's side for the upstroke

and flatten and pull on the down stroke.

Use gloss black paint.

Then use a liner brush for a sketch detail

on all of the down strokes.

Just adds an extra bit of personality to the letters.

If you need to correct some mistakes like this:

(You can see some messy lines I tried wiping off)

You can use rubbing alcohol to get rid of those

unwanted paint marks.

Just knowing how to fix things is half the battle.

Kind of like the marriage journey!

I shaded the edges brown.

I love this sentiment on our wall.

Pin It!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
