    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? … ne-Citizen

    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. smile

      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.

        No, that's OK. smile  It's not offensive.  Any other opinions?

    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. smile  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. smile

    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.

    Thanks everyone!!!
