-Cardstock or poster board cut into 8"X10" (that way it can be framed for the nursery)
-Crayons and Markers
I started off by penciling the places where I would be writing. I left a border along the edges and gave myself a line that each letter had to reach, so they would all be even.
Then, I penciled in my letters. If you look closely, you can see where I wrote a normal letter and then went around it to make a bubble letter, which I am terrible at drawing. After that, I erased my original pencil lines to give me a better idea of what the signs would look like.
Note: I left the "O" in "BOY" empty so that I could cut it out and add the sonogram picture. Same with the box after "GIRL".
Here are the finished signs. We are having a boy! I used two crayons to make the background have a gradient, or ombre, effect to them. I used markers to color in my letters and used one of the crayons to give each letter a shadowed look by coloring in areas on top of the marker. You don't have to, I just felt like it helped them pop more.
Thanks for reading; look forward to a new post Monday!
