    After spending the best part of my Sunday afternoon trying to make my monogram (from scratch) I'm still not sure about it...

      very cute..i'd recommend moving the bottom part up a bit so its not cut off..and maybe even considering another color for the inner circle so the turtle and your initials are more visible...otherwise, GREAT job!!

        So cute! My two suggestions 1. Instead of having Bayahibe 2013 straight across I would try and see how it looks rounded to fit the shape or the circle. And 2. Try and mess around the the transparency of the dark background and turtle if you make it like 45% your names will stick out much more! Overall nice job love the colors!

          I agree with the ladies above!! The text on the bottom is cut off so you definitely want to do something about that! And transparency will help to make the initials POP!

                Thanks for the advice guys! I did lower the transparency of the background a bit, but you're right, I could do with lowering it some more. I also tried rounding the text but to no avail... can anyone shed any light on how to do it? Thanks again!!

                  How about this one? Think I might have made it worse lol.

                  Any ideas? Should I lower the transparency of the turtle even more? This is harder than it looks!

                    i think the new one is better than the first one, but I think you should make your initials larger. the ampersand isn't getting married, you are! :-)

                     

                    In the end, it's your vision, and you should follow your gut and just have fun playing around with it. If you're getting frustrated, come back to it after a few days. That usually works for me.

                      Great point! It's like that because initially we were originally going to put our surname initial in the centre but it just didn't look right. Will have another play around. I really appreciate your comments. Sometimes you've looked at something for so long it's hard to step back and notice things that are obvious to third parties.
