Your handwriting is very neat! I like how your sign turned out.

I have horrible handwriting too! My friend is super artistic and has amazing handwriting so she’s writing my signs for me! I’m sure you know someone who has pretty handwriting too.

I think the handwriting turned out good but it looks a little crooked. Could you draw very light lines in pencil and then erase the lines after writing out your sign?

It’s okay, but it’s crooked and love is capitalized for some reason.  Your handwriting isn’t bad, though!  It might be the crookedness that’s throwing you off.  I would pencil on some lines for the next one.  As MrsBeck said.

Allyg:  The capitalization is throwing me off. Love should not be randomly capitalized!

Allyg:  Penmanship is beautiful! Its just crooked. I would use lines to help make it straight. But otherwise, pretty handwriting!

I love the handwriting! The alignment/capitalization is weird to me though. I first read it as if it were a letter from someone named grow:

Please take one and watch.

Love, grow

Just a minor note that could be corrected if you centered everything and didn’t capitalize the L in love. Otherwise it’s really pretty.

Have you tried it landscape instead of portrait?  The words might fit better

Allyg:  personally i would put ‘watch love’ on one line and grow centered underneath it, and center ‘Please’. your handwriting is lovely though.x

Allyg:  Changes…”Please” is thicker/bolder? than the other words I would make it thinner or make the other ones bolder. The “a”s 2 of them are the same the 3rd one is different.  You should make them all the same.  The “g” seems like you ran out of room in the bottom so the bottom loopy thingy looks like you squished it to make it fit. So I think you should space the words out so everything looks proportional and nicely spaced out and centered on the paper.

Maybe you should write it like this….



     Take One


    Watch Love


and maybe at the bottom you can put one of those swirl thingies that people put under texts like this one….

The letter k looks a little odd.  It was hard for me to read at first.  I really like your frame.
