Happy St. Patrick’s Day, guys! I just wanted to show you a super quick and EASY sign that I made for St. Patrick’s Day. This is obviously the simplest thing ever, but I love green & gold together and I enjoy attempting to write in pretty cursive, so it was fun.
I was partially inspired by St. Patrick’s Day, and partially inspired by the cover of my favorite coffee table book, “Places to Go, People to See” from kate spade. If you’re a lifestyle blogger, you will love this book. The photography and design in it is stunning.
For my little sign, I used scrapbook paper, shamrock scrapbook stickers, and a gold Sharpie. I bought the metallic Sharpie set (it comes with gold, silver, & bronze). I’m obsessed with them. I literally sat on the floor and wrote the Pledge of Allegiance in cursive with them (because it’s something long that I have memorized, haha) to see what the color looked like. I also attempted to do some hand lettering, but that is definitely a work in progress right now, haha.
The metallic Sharpies are just so pretty and shiny. The ink looks the best when the light catches it. The only bad thing about them is that I played around with the gold one so much that it died on me after 3 days. But that’s just because I used it like crazy in a short amount of time.
Playing around with writing in cursive with the Sharpies has made me want to try to learn the basics of hand lettering someday. I think it’s so beautiful. I may try to find some tutorials online so that I can learn.
Anyways, I just thought I would share what I’ve been into lately. Thanks for reading. Cheers!
