Unique Monograms combining multiple styles.
Monogram Styles Used:
We needed a monogram with a crown - so the starting point for this three-letter monogram was a crown shape. Imagining that the border design from Romanesque Monogram Set 10 might do the trick, we deleted the letter and the circular accent elements, then flipped the remaining shape over so the pointed part was up, not down. The result was an interesting variation on a traditional crown design, which normally would be straight across on the bottom.
Next step - fill it in with letters that are comfortable in that shape. Diamond Monogram Set 4 was an obvious choice for the last name initial in the center position. We resized the G a bit smaller so that it fit. Looking for flanking letters that were compatible but not matching, the Woolworth Monogram Set seemed a possibility, so the letters C and N were pasted in on either side.
The result is modern and traditional at the same time.
The overall size is 3 1/4"(82mm) tall by 3 1/4"(82mm) 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.
