How To Create Blog Graphic Canva Designs [Video]

Visual Content Is QueenYou just finished writing your blog post and realized you need an image. MAYBE you’ve been very organized and you’d like to get a head start on your blog graphics that you have scheduled on your editorial calendar for the next month. Whichever way you look at it there is no doubt you need images for your blog post. Of course what’s better than something easy and you can create all by yourself. Using Canva designs will work out great! Remember you can get awesome photos from my favorite list HERE then upload the photo at Canva.

Below is a blog graphic tutorial video which gives you a few tips on how to place your photo and how to use transparency to bring out clarity in your font. You’ll also get a kick out of me looking for a number that simply won’t show up in the search browser. Canva must have known I was recording! It’s pretty funny I must say so myself.

My technique may be different from others. However that’s the reason why I adore Canva so much. As you practice making images you get comfortable with it and gain your own style in creating awesomeness.

Let me know what you like best or not like from the video.

Take care,

  1. Hello Lillian, You are getting better with your video’s girl but you do need to work on the sound, I could barely here you..But congrats for taking action my friend!! Keep up the good work… Chery :))

  2. Nice post! This is something that I am trying to do more effectively as I am getting used to wordpress and all of the features it has to offer. I started incorporating various pictures and even my signature into my blog to make it more professional. Thanks for the tips and for sharing!

    1. Hey Kyle!

      WordPress does take time to get used to. That’s great that you’re using pictures. I have had mixed feelings about the signature. I include it on newsletters but not my blog. I don’t know…it doesn’t look right to me for some reason.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi Lillian,

    I have to agree with Chery, the volume of the sound was pretty low. Keep at it though. I love what you are doing with your Canva training tutorials. Thanks!

    btw – you can get the Audio Technica 2100 or 2005 on Amazon at a reasonable price – under $50. All of the top podcasters are doing reviews on this mic so you can search for the reviews on YouTube to see how it sounds.


    1. Hey there Ileane,

      Thanks for the feedback! I’m really excited about the next video – Canva presentations with Keynote. =)

      I will definitely look into the Audio Technica 2100. I appreciate your advise.

      Take care & Have a Wonderful Day,

  4. Your image is really creative Lillian. I enjoy making my own blog images but Canva would provide me with more ideas and options for backgrounds.

    1. Hi Sue!

      Thanks. I love that cat. She looks so regal! Canva certainly has a ton of photos and they are all $1. However I do have an awesome list of no license public domain photo sites that you can find beautiful photos for your blog. This is the post: Hope it helps!

      Take care,

  5. Hi Lillian,

    Absolutely loved this post and yes I am definately going to take a good look at Canva for my images:)


  6. Thank you for sharing Canva, I have worked with this tool before, but for some reason I really like Pic Monkey, maybe it’s the silly monkey dancing when you are saving your images. 🙂
    I like that I can make collages and edit and touch up images. After your tutorial I might give Canva another look.

    1. Hi Rabia,

      I do like PicMonkey too and I actually have a post where I compare the two. I was on the fence on which I liked best for a while then I found Canva to be more enjoyable. I found out that you can use Canva for presentations and I think that won me over. PicMonkey does have it’s advantages however I have to admit if I need to make a touch up then I use Pixlr or Fotor.

      Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find the video to be of value!

      Take care,
