I have figured out how to create borders for my hubs to help separate content. My question is what do you guys think about the borders in this hub?

I like the "free form" look of the border that was created with the "Paint" program and a free-form "brush." But, while I like it, I'm wondering if the crooked-line-look bothers others.
I have several of these borders in different colors ready to go for other hubs. Do you guys think it's creative or annoying.
Quite a lot of people use image dividers in their hubs. However I have to say - those ones LOOK like a kid drew them in paint and don't really add to the overall professionalism of the article. Sorry.
I use borders at lot. I love them. I took a look at your borders and the crooked-line-look sticks out like a sore thumb. Maybe the color is too bright, try to make it lighter and see. Also, try to make it thinner, maybe that will work better. Experiment, experiment, experiment.
I think used in this way they might stop the reader at the end of a section, rather than continuing to read down the page. The color and width might be making them stand out more than the text. You could try breaking the border/divider up ---- - - - - like a dotted line.
I've just had a look at your hub and while I like borders to separate content yours are too bold for my liking I would prefer them thinner and less crooked. I've seen some really nice ones on the internet that are straight and just curl up at the ends. I hope this helps.
Thank you everyone. I know how to make different size borders with lines and all sorts of stuff. I just thought this border was more creative and fun, BUT I also worried that others might not see that in it. And, I was right.
I will keep the bright blue as it matches the CGC logo in the middle of the article. I know good design always catches a color from the photos and plays it up in the article. But I will get rid of the crooked brush look and go with something more traditional.

I think I've seen this asked and answered before but I might be a little thick? I've attempted to add an image into a capsule and place it between paragraphs but it comes out huge rather than a thin border.

I have seen a lot of posts made of late against the so-called illegal immigrants from south of the border. I have also heard a lot of smack about how we should be helping our "wonderful veterans" instead....
