When we got married, it was really important to the both of us to say our own vows. We were so lucky that Bryan’s cousin was officiating because we have known people in the past struggle to deviate at all from traditional church ceremonies. Bryan’s cousin though was willing to have us to both the tradition vows and our own personal vows. It is the part of the ceremony that I remember most clearly. I find beauty in the traditions, but our vows were solely about our love and our relationship.
We both offered each other five promises. It is important to always remember these promises, so I decided it wouldn’t hurt to have a daily reminder and added them to the gallery wall I was making. I am so excited about how this turned out and am hoping to offer this art work to my Etsy shop when it is opened
I wanted the final piece to be white and navy; I also wanted the letters to be a bit distressed so I decided I wanted the final product all paint instead of just attaching the vinyl. So I painted the board white with a couple coats first, attached the vinyl, painted over them with the navy twice, and then took tweezers and picked off the vinyl letters. The board I used was a 20×20 wood canvas board.
I link up to the following parties, including Serenity Now, Shabby Nest, Whipperberry, Homecoming, Homestories A to Z, Finding Silver Pennies, Organizing Junkie, The Weekly Creative, Thirty Handmade Days, and the Monthly Pinterest Challenge.
