2022 Cover Page Tutorial with Colorful Lettering! 4

Hello friends, it’s Smitha from the blog Smiling Colors with a new post to share. Is there any feeling better than opening a new journal? I am going to show you how to create a colorful 2022 cover page with markers.

2022 Cover Page

Material list:

Step 1:

First, sketch out your year number 22 to be large and in the center of the page. I used a MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil and drew out my numbers to be eight dots wide and 15 dots tall. Erase and recenter until you are happy with how it looks.

Step 2:

Using the penciled number outline as a guide, start adding stripes of color using the brush tip of the Dual Brush Pens. I did not overlap my colors but just added them as stripes here. Fill in the entire number using colors of your choice!

Step 3:

To create a rainbow plaid effect, fill each number with vertical stripes of the same colors!! The Dual Brush Pen colors overlap and create new in-between colors that add so much more interest to the lettering! This is a little difficult to explain but make sure to watch my tutorial video here!

Step 4:

Finish your 2022 cover page, by lettering the word “twenty” above the number using a MONO Drawing Pen of your choice. To add more drama, you can also add a thicker outline (or shadow) using a grey-colored Dual Brush Pen.

    That’s a good idea. It is a colorful cover page. I have made one for myself, however, I left it full in blue because my last year still had many unfinished projects. I want to let that color represent the hope, the desire that I want to achieve.

    Start by lightly sketching the layout of your cover page on the paper. You can use a ruler to create straight lines and sections if desired. Consider adding the year “2022” as the focal point, and leave space for colorful lettering and decorations.
