Unique Monograms combining multiple styles.
Monogram Styles Used:
How to create a blended monogram for a married couple with the same last name - two people who get along well but don't really have the same taste? Try mixing things up.
We started with the letter E from our Arabesque Monogram Set 14 (also part of Monogram Blends - Classic 1). This letter has a smooth rounded look, and represents the historic aspects of the couple's personalities.
In order to also represent the more modern element, we looked for something more straight and geometric and settled on the letters A and R from our Triangle Monogram Set 4.
Rather than competing with each other, these two styles look good together. To finish off the concept and add something that isn't explicitly classic or modern we surrounded the three initials with a design from Monogram Flourishes 1 (year 1931) - an oval with two candlewick stitches as accents.
The overall size is 4 7/8" (123mm) tall by 3 1/2" (89mm) 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.
