About This Class


Would you like to learn how to create easy borders and banners for your lettering, doodling, and note-taking?

I love adding borders and banners to my artwork and they are super simple to create.

However, sometimes, I have trouble coming up with an idea for a border or banner in the spur of the moment. Therefore, I decided to create a visual vocabulary as a reference sheet I can refer back to again and again.

In this class, I'm going to take you step-by-step through the process of creating 70 simple borders and banners you can use right away.

Plus, they're super fun and it will make your notes, your planner, and your lettering shine!

The only supplies you need for this class is some paper and a pencil or pen.

I recommend creating these borders and banners with me as you watch the videos. That way, you will finish the class with your own visual vocabulary you can refer back to any time you need inspiration.

What are you waiting for?

Let's get started.

This class is just as easy to follow and learn new creative methods in banner and frame illustration as the course in Patterns. I love that you don't need special supplies for this course, you can use whatever you have at hand and you can easily draw while watching the video. I doesn't get any easier than that! I can't wait to actually start putting all the knowledge into practice :) Thank you!

But, I have learned to embrace the artist in me and have re-discovered the joy of creating art.

Art can help you:

Relax and have fun. It's been an amazing form of self-care for me. Discover the power of color. Creating art can bring you so much joy. Create beautiful pieces you can...
