1. Introduction: Hello. I'm Helen Kobrick on Welcome to My Class, which is all about creating fun floor journal pages. I love adding creative elements in my own journals. I find it a really relaxing part of the process and also because I like how my journal pages look. It really encourages me to go back and use them every single day. And over time, along with your journal writing, you'll find it's a really good way to kind of track your progress for your different doodling and sketching skills. So in this class, we're going to start off by learning Cem floor doodles, some of which will be really basic. And then we'll add a little bit of line, work in some shading and to help you with this. You will have access to this worksheet, and you can use that to either copy a long as I'm creating those doodles. Or you could even trace them if you want to, to help build your confidence. Once we've mastered that, we're going to look at using some of those doodles to create really pretty page borders, dividers or use them to underlined headings, and I will help you see how versatile these little doodles. Ca NBI. After that, we're going to make one of those doodles into a larger piece on. Then turn that into a mood tracker for your journal, and that gives you a really clear and creative kind of symbol at the end of the month, where you can reflect and see how things of being few and what you might be able to learn. After that, we're going to look at creating a Dutch store spread, and if you haven't heard of Dutch doors, don't worry. We're going to cover that in more detail, but it will involve cutting some of your journal pages. Say you'll need to be brave with that one if you fancy ago. After that, we're going to look a putting some of those floor deedles together into create a really beautiful floral race on. I absolutely love during that, and you can play around with different color schemes and different time the types of flowers, depending on what time is a year it is on. Then we will finish it off by licking its, um, illustrated lettering. So either using some tiny floor doodles inside those letters or perhaps adding some outside of them. So I hope you have lots of fun with this class. You don't need later tools to get started and notebook. You might find it helpful to have a pencil and a razor. Definitely a pen, some says is if you fancy that Dutch door on, then also something to add color. If you want to, which could be pencils, pens or water colors. Your class project will be to share with me anything that you've created throughout this class. So please, do you take a quick photo on. Just pop it in the project section. I'd love to see what you come up with, so I really hate you. Have fun and let's get started. 2. Floral Journal Flip Through: before we get into their lessons themselves. I thought it might be useful if I shared with you how I use different floor doodles and illustrations inside my journals that hopefully is. We're working through each of the exercises together. You'll start to get some ideas for how you might be able to use them on your pages. So this journal here is my daily journal, where I write a few notes every day and I often decorate the right hand page along with adding a little journal writing. This is my Travelers notebook insert, and this is where I tend to explore a topic or something on my mind in more detail. And these are usually highly decorated pages with washi tape and stamps and stickers. Also, lots of floor doodles and illustrations using watercolor and other mediums, Toe added that lovely color. You can, of course, use lots of other seems to decorate your journal. I find that floors are a really fun and versatile topic to cover. I especially like that you can pick different flowers for different times of the year to really tie in with nature. This is my sketch journal, and I often use it to practice different techniques. I then want to try in my journal itself. I also used this when I'm taking other people's skill share classes, it's a really great way to try different things out and get it looking exactly how you want it before adding it to your journal pages in here, I mainly use watercolor and occasionally brash. I think it's really good to have a place where you can experiment and just try out different styles, so that over time you really get a feeling for what suits you best. The final journals I'm going to share with you is my bullet journal, and this is where I dio all of my planning for the task. I need to get done each day, week and months, and I use floor deedles a lot in here. See here an example of a floor Reese, which will be covering later on in the class. I often use thes for my cover pages. I think each month feels like a new chapter, so I like to illustrate that in some way also used them for nude trackers on Dutch doors, all of which will be covering in this class I hope this helps to give you a good feel for how versatile these floor Deedles Bay shares you. Lots of different ways that you can use therm a long ways every variety of color schemes on different techniques. After you've taken all of the course, you can come back to this section at any time to think about new ideas that you might want to bring into your own journal. 3. Floral Doodles - Getting Started: in this section, we're going to learn how to create these different floor do doors. You confined this worksheet lynch down below in the projects in resource is section, and you can use this to either copy from or if you prefer, you could trace it straight on to your journal pages. I will be using two different size pigment liners, one with a 0.1 on one with a 0.3 new If you only have one size, that's absolutely fine. I'm also going to be using a dotted notebook. But any type of notebook will work perfectly well. I'm going to be shown you how I form each of the individual flowers so that you can have a good go at practice in first before starting to use them in your journal spreads. And I thought it would be really useful for you to see the order in which I start to create each of these illustrations. So for this first flower, I'm starting off by sketching out the stem. I'm not adding the petal, which is nearest the front, because all of the others will sit behind it. I'm using my 0.1 pen for this. You noticed. I already have the pencil outlines on my paper, and I very often start in pencil first and then add in greater with some of the more simple doodles. I will do those with think straight away. Now that I have the outline of the flower completed, I'm going to add some more details. You're noticed. I've added a pencil arrow in the top left hand corner, and this is to show where my imaginary light source is coming from. So I'm going to add a sicker line along the right hand side and bottom of each of the petals. And this is to create the shade of facts that you would get from that light shining down. Now these are essential stages. You could just leave the flower as it waas. I think it adds a really nice extra element. If you add in some of that shading and detail, I've now gone back to the 0.1 nip to add in some lines along the bottom of each petal on holding the pen really loosely for this and just flicking those lines upwards. It really adds an extra element to your deedles for the next flower. I'm starting with the oval shape in the center and then adding the stand before moving on to the petals. Because the petals overlap. I'm going to start by adding every other petal on, then adding a straight line up the middle. And then you'll notice I've popped another petal in between because that one will be slightly behind and you don't need to be precise with any of thes shapes. So if you've got some wavy lines in some straight lines, that's absolutely fine. I'm now going to add lots of tiny circles with inside that oval. I'm also adding some extra details to this done by just including lots of little dots and dashes. I'm also including some additional shading in between each of the places where the petals would meet and overlap for the next flower. I'm starting right from the bottom and taking that line away up into the center of the flower again. Don't worry, nothing has to be precise. No two flowers look exactly the same in nature, so as long as yours looks something like a flower than you're doing absolutely fine and then adding those lovely curved leaves with a line inside each off them. I'm now adding some extra detail to that inside line. I'm just wiggling my pen up and down to get that effect. I'm also doing the same to the bottom edge of the petal. Andi, coming slightly downwards to not just helps to give a feeding of the texture of the flower and then smoothing that line outwards slightly so that it doesn't have quite such an abrupt end, also adding just a little more shading along the right hand side, Onda underneath. For this next hour, I'm starting from the top as this flower is hanging downwards. So I've started with the top part of the stem, and then then just bringing those wiggly lines downwards are now adding the petal shapes, which again are just simple lines and curves. For the bottom part, we just want some nice fine lines, which all come up and meet a the same point with some fuzzy typed oval shapes right at the bottom. And again, I'm just adding in some of that shading, thinking about where that imagined light source is coming from, and at this stage, I'm not adding any color. It all I just want you to feel confident in creating some of these basic shapes. You kind, of course, pause the class at any point to enable you to catch up. This next DEEDLE is a really simple one on one that I use quite a lot. You've got one main line a wept a little, and then you're going to draw separate branches coming off it, and then you can add a few smaller lines. This is really versatile because you can change the shape and length of this DEEDLE to fit into any space that you have are now creating some kind of shaky circles on the end of each of the lines. When it comes to adding color, you could match this kind of doodle in tow any different color schemes that you're using for a final bit of detail. I'm adding some dots inside each of the circles. I will also add a little bit of shading where each of the circles runs into the line by now , moving on to the second page off the deedles on gun drawing lots of circles inside that pencil circle that I drew. So I'm not going to trace the actual circle. I'm just drawing lots of smaller circles inside it now, now, lightly flicking out my pen to create lots of really loose stranded petals coming out of it . And I draw some that mawr firmly to make sure that I've got the shape that I want and then just add those loose lines in between them with some separate dots and dashes right in the center of that flower. For this next design, I'm going to add the center of each of the flowers first, and this enables me to checks. I'm happy with the placement of each of the flowers before adding the petals, and these are just really quick and simple oval shapes coming out from that circle. This is a really pretty and quick way to add a floor designed to your pages and then adding each of the stems, making sure that they all crossover in exactly the same point. And if you wanted, you could sketch a ribbon coming around this area. Once I've got all of the stems in place, I'm going to add each of those little leaves, which are actually a similar shape to the petals you just drawn on the flowers. This next flowers a great one to try. If you sometimes struggle with getting your petals looking even I'm going to draw five lines coming out from the circle, and the lines themselves tend to be easier to space than individual petals on, then drawing the Petr around the outside of those lines, so that line is going to become the inside of each of the petals. I've just then added some extra details to that flower. Finally, I'm adding some little dots inside the center. You can also add some shading along one side of each of the petals, if you like, just to add a little more shape and dimension for this flower, I'm creating some simple teardrop shaped petals. I'm starting with the one on the bottom left hand corner and then adding each of the petals coming out of this space and then adding the stent on the leaf before adding some extra detail to the bottom of each of the petals. This is a really lovely simple designer flower that you could use a smelly doodles next to the date on your pages. All turn into a bigger flower for something like a cover page or a Dutch door or mood tracker for this final flower, I'm going to start with the petal at the bottom, and for this you're just adding lots of wiggly lines in the shape of a kind of triangle and then going to add that second petal on the left hand side before adding lots of tiny marks in the shape of a circle for the center of the flower. A new thing can add all of your extra petals coming out from the shapes that you've already formed and then adding a very since Stan and for the leaf on the side on drawing one line with then lots of little flick lines coming out of each side to finish off the flower again. I'm going to add some more of those picked lines, which is similar to those I added to the leaf. But coming out of each of the petals so they're adds a little bit of texture, and you can imagine those petals being all kind of Brinkley again. If you wish, you can have some shading to each of the places where those petals would be crossing over with each other and also right along the bottom. I hope you've enjoyed having a go it creating these really fun floor doodles on will now start moving on to how we can use them inside our journal pages. 4. Floral Borders: Now that we've learned how to create these floor designs, I'm going to share with you some ideas for using those as borders, page dividers or two underlined sections inside your journal. For my first design, I've turned my page to the side, and I'm going to draw some circles, which will be the inside of the tiny flowers on with the DOT book. It's really handy because you can count of the amount of spaces along to make sure that your flowers are evenly spaced. I'm now drawing lots of tiny little petals ever on the outside of the flower in exactly the same way as we did when we were learning these designs. I'm now drawing a wiggly line in between each of the flowers. I will then add some leaves along those lines to make them look like they're part of a daisy chain. And this kind of design works really well to underline a heading. You could also do them right around the outside of the page to create a really lovely border. You could definitely leave these designs in black and white. I've decided I'm going to add some color to mine, are going to be using some chameleon colored pencils, amusing orange for the center of the flower, and I'll be using a yellow for the petals. I will also add some green to the leaves, but it can look really effective if you coloring those leaves using black ink. I really enjoy playing around with different color palettes because it can bring a completely different look and feel to journal pages. And if he used the same designs across a couple of pages, it helps you really get a cohesive looking journal, and you can see which pages or go together. You could, of course, use felt tip pens or watercolor pains. It just depends on the type of paper that you've got inside your journal. I'm now making a quick note to say that you could use thes types of designs, Teoh underlined headings or create page dividers. So if you are making some notes or doing your daily plans, something like this would be a really nice way to separate all of those sections out. I'm now moving on to my second design, and for this I'm starting off by drawing a wavy line right across the width of the page. I'm then going to add those branches in exactly the same way we did when we were learning. Thes floor doodles are known, adding some additional lines on. I'll be drawing those wobbly kind of circle shapes on the end off them again. This type of design would work really well. Is a border all the way around your page. Or, if you wanted to create some framed boxes, they were going to make some notes inside. It's a lovely, simple design that I've also used on envelopes. When I've been sending post out to family or friends. I'm now adding those little dots inside the flower heads right This time I've decided to use a blue colored pencil again. Feel free to play around with lots of different colors. You could even gave for a rainbow effect. Pain each of those flower heads with a different colored water color paint or felt tip pen for the next design. I'm going to start off by adding three circles, which will be the center of my flower heads. I'm now going to do the action where I flick the lines out in a circular shape on with Paige borders in dividers I tend to find that the simpler the flower, the easier is to keep repeating its that you've got that lovely pattern on your page. With this type of flower, you could also make them into a really tiny size if you wanted to, so that they took up less space in your journal. I'm now going to add the dots inside the center of the flower heads on to join them together. I'm going to use to wiggly lines, joining each of the flowers and taking it right to the edge of the page. Don't worry if any of your flowers don't look particularly perfect. By the time you've created lots of them on your page and added colors, I'm sure you won't be able to notice any of the little mistakes or errors that you might have made the furnace flower. I'm using a lovely purple color and just really loosely almost scribbling, matching him with those lines. I hope this is helping to give you an idea for how versatile these floor deedles can really bay, and all the different ways it might be able to start using them inside your brain journal for the final design in this section, I'm going to be sharing with you how you could use the same designs to create a really fancy corner in your journal. So I'm going to start off by drawing out the center of my flowers, which again helps me Teoh evenly spaced them. I'm going to use the same design as we did for that very first border at the top. So I'm drawing around those little petals, and I'll again add the line through each of the flowers and then add the leaves on at the end. Adding little designs to the corner of your pages could be a really nice way to tie in all of the pages from one particular month, or even a scene that you're writing about initial flick through your pain. You should then really quickly be able to identify which each of the pages is referencing again. I'm going to add some color to this final design that just used different colors. This time, I hope this has given you lots of ideas. Do you have a look through that worksheet and you could try creating different dividers and borders using any of the designs? My definitely find is easier to create this with some of the simpler doodle images 5. Floral Mood Tracker: in this lesson, I'm going to be sharing with you how to create a mood tracker in your journal. I find these really helpful because I color in one section each day on by the end of the month. I've got a really clear visual representation of how my mood has changed throughout the course of the month. And this helps me to be ableto look a what kind of things I was doing on the days where I was struggling and learn the kinds of things which really made me feel happier and try and bring more of those into my life. So to create their mood tracker itself, I'm using one of the floor doodles and I've just expanded it into a Mitch much bigger design on my page and the aim by the end of this will be to have a design that you can break down into the number of days there are in the months. So I'm going to draw out all of the petals as normal and as you can see, by the time I finished it, I've got five petals. I'm going to break these petals into six parts each so that I know, I've got 30 different sections that I can color in by the end of the month. And you can adjust this depending on how many days there are. And I keep my me tracker quite simple. So I'm going to just pick one overriding mood for the day. If you wanted to, you could break those petals down even further into how you felt in the morning. Afternoon and evening flowers are great to use his mood trackers because they're really easy to break into those different parts. And you might have noticed what I did there. Flip through my journals that I also did a floor bouquet where each one of the flowers represented different days in the month. I'm now adding their key to the bottom of my page, and you can pick the different moods that are most appropriate to you. I've just picked for which are happy. Okay, a bit low onside. And this is the stage where I'm now breaking down those petals into the different parts. So as I mentioned, I want each petal toe have six parts, some adding five lines inside each of the petals, and each of these parts will now represent a different day. In the months when I add color, I will work around from left to right in a clockwise direction. If you think you might lose track, you could always add a little number inside each of the petals sections so that you know which day is which I'm now adding the colors to the key section so that I know which color I'm going to use to represent each mood on. I like the colors to be quite similar to each other, but there needs to be enough of a difference that you can easily identify which mood you are representing on each individual day. And for this, I'm just using colored pencils before the month starts. I like to add color to the sections, which won't actually be part of my lead tracker. It's one coloring in the center of the flower, the stem on also the leaf. If you wanted, you could also use these as different parts of your new tracker, but it would mean that you might end up with something like a purple stem or red leaf, but we shovel works View is absolutely fine, as well as one large floor design on also a bouquet. You could also consider doing things like a floral wreath, which will come on to later, or lots of different page dividers like we just covered in the Borders section. And any of thes would work really well for an attractive and useful new tracker. I'm now going Teoh share with you what it might look like by the end of the month, when each of those sections have been filled in, you'll be able to see that really clear representation of how things have bean. I tend to quickly look at the end of the month to see have more of my days being in the kind of happy colors or towards the low end. Then also look at things like my habit tracker my tasks and calendar to see where perhaps I was feeling pressure on what lessons I can learn to try and get more of those happy looking days by the end of the following month, 6. Floral Dutch Door: Okay, We've now moved into the Dutch Door lesson where I've mentioned that you're gonna have to be really brave with that pair of scissors. But we'll get onto that part in a moment. I often use Dutch doors with my weekly planning spreads. I also sometimes used them at the beginning of a month. So I'm going to start off by creating my normal weekly spread that I create in my bullet journal. And this is where I dropped down all of the deadlines, events and tasks that I have coming up along with some meal planning on some habit tracking to I tend to freehand all of my boxes. I then just break them down into different sections. If you're wanting to recreate this, then each of my columns are 12 dots wide on. My headings are two dots down on each of the other lines of each day, the week, and they are four dots down. And for creating this, I just use my normal state lor pigment liner for the headings themselves. I'm going to use a Tom Bo Fitness Suki brush pen with a firm name, so I'm starting off by lettering in the heading off events on the left hand side and then also adding the days of the week. This is the column where I like to record any meetings I've got coming up, but also any deadlines In my Meals column, I'm writing the letters B. L. D. S for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. The next thing I'm doing is adding some washi tape onto my page on This is simply for decoration. If you've got a little more time, you could use some of these floor orders and dividers we created earlier on are now using a Tom Bo a B T brush pen to add some shadows around my boxes. And again, this is a completely optional start. Now we're moving on to their Dutch door itself, and you could just cut a vertical line on your journal page. But I like to create a floor design and cut around it. I'm starting off by using a compass. Unlikely sketching that circle, and I make sure that that goes just over halfway across that white home page. I have already penciled in all of my floor designs, and I'm now going to start in King over the top of them and that circle the I. I did. First of all, I actually did that initially before adding the pencil sketches so that I could get a feel for where I wanted those designs to Dio. I'm going to be adding lots of floor doodles both inside the circle. Andi sightly overlapping it. On what I've added all of the Incan color, you'll be able to see the effect that this creates if you're doing your first touch door. If you prefer, you could just draw one large floor design Andi, then cut around it so that you've got that half paid. Showing. Dutch doors are a really fun, creative element to add to your journal pages, but they're also quite functional, too. You'll be able to see when I cut around this design that my page underneath is still visible, and for my weekly spread, that's actually really useful. It also gives you some extra journaling space underneath that Dutch door, and you could use that to add goals for the week, which is what I do. Or are Cem more personal journaling or include some Fritos underneath? I'm now just gradually building up that floor design on most of these were covered in the initial floor doodle section. I'm also just playing around with a few other simple designs to, as I will be using a wet medium to add color. I'm making sure that I use a waterproof pan, so I'm using a black stabler pigment liner for this. As I mentioned earlier, you could just create one straightforward horizontal cut up the center of your page, or you could even cut horizontally. But this would mean removing half of your page by tearing or cutting it along the spine. And I try not to do that because it can cause some damage to your journal, resulting in some of the pages falling out for this particular design. I'm adding some black ink inside the leaves because I really want there to be a contrast between the colors I add the white space on the darkness to, and hopefully all of this will become much clearer. Once you've seen me create the rest of the Dutch door, I'm now going to add some color to my design. And for this ice grew bored with that Tom bowed rush pan that I used the blue one earlier on I scribbled with that onto a seller bag. I'm now using a water brush to die leech that ink, and you could issues a normal paintbrush for this or any kind of color you like. And I'm adding that away inside the circle, but not inside the floor designs themselves, and this really helps all of your floor patterns to stand out. Now we're moving on to that section where we're going to cut around our design. I've drawn a pencil line up the middle of the page and then just drawn around where any flowers sticking slightly outside it. But I'm adding some washi tape to the top to tie in with the other side. You can now see that I've got this half page, which, even when closed, I can see half of the journal page underneath it. On the back of my Dutch store. I'm going Teoh letter out the word goals on. This is where I'll write down what I want to achieve that week, amusing, that tumble a B T brush pen to underlying the heading, and I'm now going to add my columns to the right home page. And these are the columns that I use for my tasks, my habits and also anything that I need to do the following week. This is a layout which works really well for me, but you could use a Dutch door for any kind of layout, even if it was just a normal journal entry where you're writing about your days. But you want a little bit of extra space to stick in some photos or tickets or anything else that you have. I really hope you've enjoyed watching how I created to this Dutch store, and it gives you the confidence to try out in your own journal very lot of fun to create, and they look so pretty when you start flicking back through your journal pages. 7. Floral Wreath: We're now moving on to one of my absolute favorite types of journal pages, and this is creating a floor reef. I'm starting off by using a compass too lightly sketch out a circle so I can get in idea of the shape that I want to use. I use floral wreaths a lot when I'm creating a cover page in my journal, and I create one of thes at the beginning of every single month. If you don't have a camper, Sukha definitely likely draw around a saucer or plate to get that circle shape that you're looking for. And I start off in pencil by loosely sketching where I want each of the flowers to bay. I'm starting off in that bottom right hand corner. There's I'm going to create an open reef, which will be directly opposite it at the top left hand corner. I'm also then that just thinking about how I want to structure each of those flowers so it looks nicely balanced and you be able to get a better feel for how that looks when I start moving on to the thinking stage. When I'm creating it roughly in pencil, I don't worry too much about getting things exactly right because I know that I can adjust this further. Once I get onto the thinking stage, you can use any of the flower designs that you like, and it's also really nice way to be able to represent the different seasons. So once we moved to the altar, my tend to have lots of brown, green and orange leaves and Berries to go alongside those flowers. Now that I've got most of the flower shapes sketched out, I'm going to start adding in some branches to whilst I'm going to use my floor. Reef is a cover page. You could also add journal writing inside of Flory on these also look great if you add the designs to the front of a greetings card now, just adding those leaves on the ends of the branches on moving onto the thinking stage. And this is where you be able to see those designs really start to come together. I'm starting off with the flowers that I know I want to be in the foreground because the petals of some of the other flowers were fall behind thes and again, I'm using the designs that we created right in that first lesson for balance, I'm gonna have to flowers which looking pretty much exactly the same. And they will be either side of the big floor element that are add in the bottom right hand corner. Now that I've added those, I'm moving on to one of my favorite types of flowers the flaky Fowler wine. Just gently moving those lines to the outside that they're going to go behind the other two flowers I've created. I've also added some of these little branches coming out with the circular flower ends. From there, I'm going to add some of the more delicate flowers coming outwards, and I'm going to balance that on each side of the floor. Reese, this helps your design to look really well. Thought out for my final stage, I'm adding their branches with leaves. If you wanted to, you could just use one type of flower all the way around the reef, and you can leave it open like I'm going to be doing. Or you could bring those branches together. I think Flory slip lovely in black and white, but I am going to be adding some color to mine Now that I have the design of my Flory finished, I'm going to move on to the coloring stage. This time I'm going to be using my Tom Bo a Bt brush pens exactly as they come, rather than adding any water to them. But you could definitely do that, too. I'm going to be using quite a pretty past, all kind of color palette you could get for something really bold if you wanted, like reds and golds or reds and blacks, and they would look really striking because we're moving into Sonny a weather here at the moment in the UK at the time of filming, I wanted something that were to represent for me all of those flowers, which is starting to coming to bloom. And that's one of the things I love is been able to use my journal to represent the colors that I'm seeing around may, for most of the coloring. Amusing the brush end off the brush pens. But for some of the finer details I'm using, that pointed felt depend with just a few simple designs. You can create some really beautiful floor wreaths in your journal pages, so I hope you'll have a pay around with it, try out some of the different floor deedles and really get creative. This is where I would usually add the new month or a date, and sometimes I also like to add a quote or some lyrics that I really enjoy. 8. Floral Lettering: we are now on to the final demonstration lesson, which is all about illustrated floor lettering. These little floor doodles are so versatile. So I wanted to give you some ideas as to how you could use them to really spruce up your lettering. So I'm starting with this worm. Wife added the flour first, and then I'm adding the letter behind it. I always pencil these in first so I can check. I'm gonna be really happy with where I've positioned those flowers they really quick and simple to do and add such a lovely touch. As with all of the other designs we've created, you can really play around with the different color schemes in the type of flowers that you use. Depending on the time of the year towards Christmas time, I often add little holly leaves and Berries instead of flowers. You could leave the letter exactly. There is as I have with the letter A. I'm also going to show you some different options to so in this example for letter B, I'm adding some blacking to the letter itself, which really helps the flower to stand out before the letter C. I'm using a gold metallic gel pen. Again, this looks really pretty and adds a slightly different feel to your lettering for the letter D. I'm going to add some color just to the flower itself. For the letter e. I'm going to add that black ink to the letter itself and then add some additional color onto the flower. These are great fun to play around with, particularly feel doing headings in your journal. So if you wanted to write their days of the week or the month, this would really help them to stand out for the letter F. I'm going to add some of that gold pen to the letter itself on, then add some color to the flower that shows you some different options for a really simple design. For some extra touches, you could use a white gel. Pento ad highlights for this letter. G. I'm adding some really tiny flowers inside the letter itself, so I penciled out the letter G. I'm just making sure each of the petals come right to the outside of that shape, so I won't Inc around the outline. I'm just filling it up with those really tiny flowers for the letter h. I'm just creating this using a simple branch and leaves that looks really pretty for the letter I. I've gone for a traditional serif type fonts, and I'm going to be adding one of those clicky flowers right in the middle of it. I'm finishing it off by adding some blacking to the letter I. I also decided to add some quick color to two of the letters using those brush pens. And again, you can really play around with these with different color themes. For the final letter I've penciled in the letter J. I'm going to be drawing lots of different branches and flowers behind it, and these are really tiny illustrations. But they're so much fun to Dio, you need to make sure that each of your branch ease and flower petals are touching the outline of the letter. Because you won't be thinking in the letter itself. You need to make sure that the formation of the letter itself is really clear. How I formed the letter J is one of my favorite ways of doing illustrated lettering, but it's also definitely the most time consuming, and I'm finishing off that one with using some different green colored pens. I really hope you've enjoyed seeing these different ways of adding floor illustrated lettering to your journal pages. 9. Class Project: So this is a quick reminder of your class project on it. It's simply to take a photo of something that you've created in your notebook or journal. It could be these rough starts away will just getting used to doing the floor doodles or, ah, whole elaborate journal page. Whatever you fancy, So do you take a photo later in the project section? I can't wait to see what you've created. 10. Thank You: Thank you ever so much for taking my class. I hope you've had loads of fun with it.
