I have had problem applying colours to my handlettering since the beginning. And it was only recently that I decided to go black-&-white on my lettering designs. And it work wonderfully.
Until I came across Gia in Mye De Leon's free lettering videos. Then I decided to try colours again. But still not very successful. Esp with a coloured background. So I decided to leave the background white. And this is what I had created.
Yes, I attended Gia's class on the colours before this.
