I started out with a basic sketch in pencil on printer paper.

Cleaned it up a bit with a black ink gel pen & scanned it in like this.

Had a lot of cleaning up to do. This part took me a lot longer than it probably should have.

After making sure I had all of my letters finished, it was time to mess around with colors! I always tend to work with greens & blues first.

Time for a background with texture! Used one of my own from this set. Found a color scheme I liked for the background. Lowered the opacity of the texture so it wasn't overwhelming.

Ended up editing the font by using Effect > Transform and messing around with the settings until I was satisfied.

Still could use a little help with kerning, and learning how to control the smooth tool a bit more...but not bad for my first shot, I hope! Thank you, Jenn, for an amazing class!
