Established sign for a home

My friend’s wedding is coming up and I have wanted to make a personalized gift for her. I came up with the idea of making an “established sign” board for their home sometime back.  As I was seeing this video I was inspired to create a watercolor artwork for their sign board.

As for the descriptors, I wanted it to be clean, vintage, warm, elegant & bright as I felt it would be welcoming when guests see that as they enter the house.

Although I didn't create a moodboard, I used some pictures from pinterest for inspiration.


Font I used “American Typewriter & Courier New” to keep with the theme of vintage.

Vector element is actually a font in itself. I wanted to use the first letter of their last name which is “T” so I chose “Dearest” font which was fancy enough to be used as a vector element.

I wanted a yellow water color texture because it was one of her favorite colors and also it goes well with the warm & bright theme. So I got the texture online.

I put it all together & gave a background texture as well just to enhance the water color feel.

What do you think??
