Making Map Borders

Ornate Borders

Slate
Texture

Here’s a tutorial I wrote a couple of years ago for the Cartographers Guild that walks through the process of making map borders such as the ones above in a program like GIMP (though it would not be difficult to adapt this to Photoshop).  On the right hand side of the screen is a linked image of the texture that I am using in this tutorial, though of course any texture that strikes your fancy will do just as well.  Click the link below for the pdf.
