As suggested, and promised! Many of my readers asked for a tip on how to do your own lettering- for wall decor or signs or anything. The same method can be used for images too, not just letters.
When I do lettering, I have two secret weapons. The first, is Carbon paper. It comes in pads, and one sheet lasts foreeeever. You can reuse it one hundred million times before you need another. That's just an estimate of course, but it's pretty close.
Carbon copy paper has one side thats all carbon, that goes face down on what you're drawing on. Then you lay what you are copying on top. When you trace the lines, a copy of it is drawn on your surface. This is the easiest way for me to transfer something.

And HERE is my second secret weapon, the paint pen.
If you have shaky hands like I do, your painted lines don't always come out straight. I use a paint pen to do the really thin parts, and to go around the edges of the fat ones, to make them nice and straight. It doesn't work well to fill in, but for the edge parts are perfect.
