After creating different paper piecings inspired by the Disneyland Marquee, Disney World and the multiple letters from around the Disneyland Resort, I've started to play with the signs for the various lands and attractions. I was asked by someone if I had ever done the signs through out the park, I hadn't but I loved the idea of the challenge.
I once again took the advice of Rich at Designerland about how to determine the fonts used in the various areas of the park, and started searching images online for detail shots of the signage.
I used the shapes tool to create the arch and then the Hanalei Font with the Rounded shadow effect to add some more thickness to the letters. I then used distress inks to add the aged weathered look to the elements and then adhered the letters to the arch with pop dots.
New Orleans Square
A simple oval shape for the base, and then the florishes are from the French Quarter Ironwork set at SVGCuts.com. The fonts were a combination of Didoni and Didoni Swash. I alternated the fonts with in the words so they would flow better on the sign.
I'll continue playing with paper and fonts and have some more paper piecings in the next few weeks.
