More Creative Lettering
I love to doodle flowers and floral patterns, which tend to be more on the girly side. This project combines that with my love for using the shapes as letters in my art.

On a piece of white copy paper, use a mechanical pencil to sketch out your letter of choice. I made an M in script but you can use any letter you like, with or without serifs. Thicken or plump your letter, making the lines at least ⅛ to ¼ inch (3 to 6 mm) thick. This doesn’t have to be super neat because it’s just going to be your example (A).
Erase any remaining pencil marks.
Using gel pens in assorted colors, add doodles and patterns to your watercolor background. Add more washes of watercolor in between the doodles, and use colored pencils to create faint patterns. Be careful not to get any of the doodling and coloring inside the body of the white letter.
Use the graphite pencil to draw a drop shadow on the bottom and left sides of your letter.
