The Twilight Saga

Hello and welcome to Banner Effects!!!

I'm Rachel and I will be you mentor for this term!!

The truth is I'm excited since its my first time as a mentor and a little scared because I don't want to disappoint all of you since I may not be the person who you were expecting to teach this class but hopefully you will genuinely like Banner Effects!!

With that said, I will try my best to make lessons really easy to understand and teach you all I know about making your graphics really pretty, little tricks to make your graphics 'POP' and even something you already didn't know to to!!

A little something about me!
