Handlettered piece on 18×24 pine board for couple’s marriage vision to be displayed in their new home.
A mix of cursive and sans serif handwritten black letters centered on a white board. Thick border around the vision paragraph so no framing required. The styling of the wall art with golden bees and local honey is inspired by the couple’s beekeeping hobby.
Materials used: Pencil, eraser, initial sketchbook sketch, ruler, and black marker
- Measurements made to center the paragraph on the board
- Pencil marks set the spacing and placement of each word
- Marker over pencil template with mid-process adjustments made
Cursive vs. sans serif selections were made based on the prominence of each word. “Marriage” to be the first word you see and then sans serif letters for the majority of the vision statement. Function words like “as”, “to”, and “is” lettered as smaller cursive to compliment the overall piece while less distinct next to most important content of the statement.
