November Birth Flowers Drop Cap Tutorial. Follow along with my step-by-step video for creating this floral letter in Procreate.
November Birth Flowers Drop Cap Tutorial
Can you believe we only have one more month left after this one? I can’t say that Mums are my favorite flower but they’re synonymous with Fall and they do always make an appearance on my Fall Porch Décor. They’re also the November birth flower, so we’ll be using them in this month’s Drop Cap design!
The video tutorial is just shy of 45 minutes long and you’ll most likely need to press pause along the way. You can expect this project to take you about 60+ minutes to complete.

I recommend completing the previous lessons first and then come back to this one, as some lessons build on things taught in prior tutorials.

- November Color Palette (Download it free below. It’s in a Procreate specific format)
- A Variety of Procreate Brushes. Mainly a basic monoline brush, a texture brush, and a few simple stamps from The Creativity Kit. The main texture brush I’ll be using is the DND Burlap Texture Brush from my Texture Kit 2 Brush Set. You can use a different one if you’d like though! 🙂
- Drop Cap Reference Sheet. I created a worksheet you can print and reference as we work through the step together.
