Ribbon Lettering

Start with a 4H MONO Drawing Pencil to mark your guidelines on a large sheet of mix media or Bristol paper. The letters should be about 3″ high. Use the 452 Process Blue Dual Brush Pen and with the brush tip, write WELCOME. For the ribbon lettering, you do not need to worry about making thin lines, keep the pressure hard for the entire word to create thick, large letters.

@mariebcreates #tombow #tombow2017dt Shade the lettering using Ribbon lettering techniques

Shade the Lettering

With the V-7 King Fisher Blue Irojiten Colored Pencil, shade in the letters to form the ribbon lettering. To see the step-by-steps and learn more about ribbon lettering, go to this blog post. When you have finished the lettering, cut out lettering in the form of a banner. The banner ‘tails’ are cut separately.

Cut Out the Welcome Banner

Adhere the banner pieces to a dark colored cardstock with MONO Multi Liquid Glue and trim leaving a 1/8″ border.

@mariebcreates #tombow #tombow2017dt Cut out the numbers

Cut out Numbers

Cut out the year numbers. I used my handy Alphabet Punch Board to create 5″ tall numbers. You can also sketch then cut out your numbers.

@mariebcreates #tombow #tombow2017dt use the mono multi liquid glue on the front of the numbers

Apply Glue

Using the broad applicator of the MONO Multi Liquid Glue, generously coat each number.

@mariebcreates #tombow #tombow2017dt add the bling

@mariebcreates #tombow #tombow2017dt sprinkle with glitter

Add the Bling

Place rhinestones into the glue. Sprinkle on glitter. You don’t have to hurry these steps, the glue dries sticky so the rhinestones and glitter will adhere even when dry!

@mariebcreates #tombow #tombow2017dt Tape the numbers to cardstock

Finish the Sign

Using Foam Tape, adhere the numbers onto dark colored cardstock. This gives the numbers a nice dimension on the sign.

A Happy New Year to everyone, and may it bring happiness doing what you love most.
