You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Plan your design on an extra sheet of paper. Practice until you feel confident. 
Step 2
When ready, draw a couple of very light pencil guidelines to help you create straight lines of text. 
Step 3
Using the fine tip end of the marker, letter the first part of your saying. 
Step 4
Using the brush tip end of the marker, letter the last portion of your saying.
 
TIP: Use a heavier pressure on the downward strokes and a lighter pressure on other strokes to achieve the thick and thin of the letters with the brush tip.
Step 5
Draw a symbol that relates to the saying. 
Step 6
After allowing to dry, erase pencil lines with the kneaded eraser.
 
TIP: Get the kneaded eraser soft by kneading it and dab it up and down to avoid smears.
Step 7
Measure and cut the saying to fit in the frame. 
Step 8
Add saying to the frame and add backing.
