Beautifully simple, or wonderfully complex, your decorative bands and borders can be purely geometric, interlaced, leafy, or include any combination of design elements of any style.
In this short course follow along to create seven completely different easy-to-copy patterns. You will be amazed at how easy it is to use the supplied grid to create your own range of decorative bands. You can use these bands as borders to frame your work, or as dividers to separate your work, or stack them together to fill a space.
This course includes around 25 minutes of video. Allow around half a day to reproduce many, if not all of the included patterns, then use the grid to explore your own ideas.
In this course we will start with a printed grid (supplied as a download) to draw your designs, then we will scan them into the computer and vectorize them. While I use Affinity Designer, any vector drawing app like Illustrator will suffice. If you prefer the non-digital experience using water-colours, gouache or acrylics, feel free to use these instead.
