Bullet Journaling 101 - Drawing A Simple Box

I've partnered with @fabercatellusa to bring you a few tutorials on how to add interest and dimension to your journal! With just a few tips and tricks, these tutorials can help bring your journaling to the next level!

Let's start with a simple box!
Step 1: Simply draw your shape with clean corners and straight lines.

Step 2: Give your shape dimension by creating a faux layer underneath. (Pro-tip: if using a dotted journal, just go over one dot, and down one dot for uniformity)

Step 3: Add depth by using a light brush marker along the bottom and right edges of your shapes.
