Since Christmas is coming, I decided to work on the word "noel," thinking that I could make it into a gift tag later. Lettering is something I love to look at, but I'm not that great at myself. I was pleasantly surprised with how this turned out!
I struggled with the "o" while overlapping the "swish" at the top and then with the "e." I wasn't sure where to put the anchor point with that letter. It worked out pretty well though.
After I finished the word, I added a background color, small illustration, and some texture.
