Create a stunning floral letter in Procreate

I love creating tutorials and weekly content for this blog and the email community. For the most part, I stick to ‘quick wins’ – projects I know can be consumed quickly and will cover something worth knowing about Lettering and/or Procreate.

This week is not that. Well, the video instructions below are just over 20 minutes which is pretty standard, but if you want to dive in and create today’s project, I can guarantee you’ll want to play around for hours!

Today we’re making this stunning floral letter with a dreamy watercolor background. You may have seen this type of design before. It’s beautifully detailed, but deceptively simple and satisfying to create.

With quarantine in full swing for such a long time, I know a lot of you are keen to sink your teeth into a meaty creative project to provide a bit of relief from the craziness outside. It’s great learning useful tips about Procreate, but today, we’re going to put our skills into action and create something really special! 

So put on your favorite tv show or podcast, (I even lit a candle to really take the chill vibe up to 11) and let’s make your letters bloom!!

    Hi Nicole,
    I love this. One question how do you keep the letter on top so that when you add the wash background it doesn’t appear on top of the letter? I must be missing something.

      Hi Alexandra, thanks for the comment. So glad you like the project! Re your question, that will be a matter of making sure the layer you use for the watercolor background is *under* any foreground layers. This is done by their order in the layer panel.

      Hope that helps! Thanks, Nicole
