Instructions
I created an ombre style color blend for the background color of my letter. You could simple start with a single color and add your flowers if you'd like.

Take a look at this quick video to get more of an idea how we created this pretty Monogram Letter decor.

To create an ombre blend:

  1. Cover work space before starting.
  2. Paint the entire letter with a single color and allow to dry.
  3. Apply a light coat of water to the letter using the paint brush.
  4. Apply a second color to 1/3 of the letter, starting at the top of the letter and working your way towards the middle. The water should blend with the paint and create a bit of a translucent layer of color.
  5. Take a paper towel, tissue or paper napkin and carefully blend the wet color towards the middle, allow the color to blend.
  6. Allow to dry before painting flowers.

To create simple painted flowers

I did not paint the flowers over the entire letter. Instead I allowed some of the background to show through to create an interesting design on the letter.

Using a medium detail paintbrush…

  1. Start with a single color, apply circles and basic flower type shapes to the letter. Rinse your brush and repeat for each flower color you'd like to use. Allow to dry.
  2. Apply a single contrasting or complimentary color to the center of the flower shapes. I used yellow on pink and orange on purple. Allow to dry.
  3. Using a very thin/small paint brush paint white lines around the different flower shapes. Add accents as you'd like such as simple lines or center circles to create basic details for each flower.
  4. You can also add small color dots throughout the letter to fill in some of the open “white space” however you'd like.
