Unique Monograms combining multiple styles.
Monogram Styles Used:
One of our recent Combinations projects was organized around the concept of using letters and frames (parts) that were all from the same style. For this project we wanted to do the opposite - create a single initial monogram from parts all from different styles, but make them visually compatible.
We started with the Monogram Frame - Frame C from Monogram Frames 1. This frame was assembled from copies of the letter H from the Olympia Monogram Set, with corner accents from copies of the letter I from Diamond Monogram Set 6.
In order to give the outer section of this monogram a bit more presence we assembled copies of the letter I from Art Deco Monogram Set 5 - mirrored and rotated after being reduced in size a bit - and placed them inside the existing frame. The result leaves an open center section into which a great many styles could be accommodated. For this project we chose a letter (G) from Baroque Monogram Set 1.
To give the overall monogram a subtle look that helps to blend all the different styles together we chose to sew out the monogram all in white.
The overall size is 7" (177mm) tall by 7" (177mm) wide.
How we made these monograms
Embroidery software programs make it easy to delete elements, copy and paste elements from other designs, resize different aspects, and merge elements together into one new design. Each program is a bit different in how the Edit functions are managed. Once you have learned to use yours, creating new monograms from other monogram parts is creative and fun. Experiment with different arrangements and colors.
