An Abecedary to color: L

Click here for a high-res,
full-page, printable. 
Two weeks ago I showed you the way that printing your letter onto  parchment paper can add a Celtic feel to your color choice.  There are lots of other background textures that will help your letters create a different visual story. 

Here I printed a cross-stitch capital L onto denim motif paper and colored it in with colored pencils in two shades of lavender.  The slight variation in tone imitates the texture of yarn.  Voila: personalized bluejeans!  

I have left the grid lines showing in this example. If you want the cross-stitch L without the grid, I've pinned that version onto my Pinterest board, "An Abecedary to Color."
