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.

Do you post your pictures with or without borders?After three years on HP, I just happened to notice the choice of framing the photos we post on our hub with a border or not. Hahaha When reading a hub of others, which photos are more visually appealing to you, the ones with the border...

There should be no borders separating nations, agree or disagree?The fact that we have different nations, different interests, culture etc. Do you think that it is more better if we have no borders?

Should our nation have open or closed borders?
