The Two Basic Bullet Journal Banners And How To Draw ThemThere are only two basic bullet journal banners. If you can master them, you can draw any kind of banner. So here I am teaching you how to the most basic and primary banners – a doodle banner and a ribbon banner.
How To Create A Doodle Banner
- Start with drawing a rectangular and then add a horizontal line at the middle of the rectangular.
- Then draw a right-angled triangle to the upper or lower part.
- Add a horizontal line from the triangle’s corner and connect the two lines with a flag shape.
- Repeat the same steps on the other side of the rectangle.
- To spice the banner, you can add colors and drop shadows. These are entirely optional, by the way.
How To Create A Ribbon Banner
- For a ribbon banner, you need to create a curved rectangle first.
- Then draw an S-curved line both from the top and the bottom.
- To achieve the ribbon fold effect, create loops and complete the banner with a flag shape.
- You can always add shadows and colors to make the banner look more fun and interesting.
