Personalised Patterned Initial

I very recently created a personalised patterned initial for my beautiful Goddaughters Christening present.  I wanted to give her and her family a present that was not only personal to her but that was unique and special. So what better way than her very own patterned initial to keep!

I began by hand drawing the outline of the letter and then filling it with intricate hand drawn patterns and motifs, all in pencil.  I then very carefully went over the pencil drawing with a black fine liner pen.  I wanted to keep the hand drawn appearance and didn’t want to over power this with too much colour, so I scanned the drawing into the computer and just selected small areas that I wanted to highlight and then filled them with colour.

I then printed out the design on some nice card and framed the print, ready to hang.  Her Mum and Dad seemed to like it so I hope little Gabriella will do too once she’s a little older. I really enjoyed creating the design and it’s inspired me to create other patterned initials/letters.  I’m going to work on a boys themed pattern next! Any takers?
