Wedding Decor

I. My Chosen Phrase

I was a very DIY bride for my wedding this past summer. Calligraphy was one of the many projects I decided to undertake, and I used my new skills for a variety of purposes including invitation envelopes, seating cards, and various other paper products. One of my favorite projects ended up being a sign I created to display in the mantel above where my husband and I were seated for dinner. Our first dance was to a cover of the George Harrison song, Your Love Is Forever. For my quote, I decided to change the phrase to "Our Love is Forever." 

II. My Pencil Sketch

I did a whole lot of practicing over time, and then tried a pencil sketch to use for my final project.

After I finalized my pencil sketch, I traced over it in ink.

Finally, I scanned it digitally, cleaned up a few minor things, and then printed out an enlarged copy to display.

III. My Final Piece

This is the final, framed version I ended up displaying at the wedding reception. I ended up loving the final version so much I keep it on display in my dining room :-)
