About This Class

9cb145d3

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.

I took this class to learn some creative activity so that later I can doodle and have a break from the screen. In today's world getting break from a screen is a must as almost all your work and errands are taken care with the help of a screen. The teacher is very helpful, and the borders are really easy to follow even as a beginner like me. She is very casual and I love her personality, especially her laugh :> I can't wait to try her other pattern class. Said all this, yes great class but wish it had handouts as I like to print out the page to copy later or get some time off from screen

Ready to learn the art of lettering and watercolor, the easy way? I know what it's like to be a beginner. And I know what it's like to battle the inner critic. The fear, self-doubt, and comparison.

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...
