Do you look at other blogs and just fancy their customized header and secretly wanting something creative for your blog too? I still remember when I made my own header using Powerpoint, it was a struggle but still I was happy to have my own one. It looked like this.
A header reflects your personality and creativity. It also makes your blog outstand other blogs.
One day while browsing, I stumbled on this website: www.canva.com
I was amazed by how easy it is to create my own header and that too for free. No download or photoshop skills are needed. On top, Canva shows you step by step how to use it and create your masterpiece.
The first step is to create an account. You sign up with google or facebook.
Next you can manually put the dimension for your header or opt for one of the premade designs. I’ve used 1200 * 300 px for the one above and my current one is 1400 * 400 px.
You can now customize the blank format with backgrounds, illustrations, pictures (even upload your own pictures or illustrations) and add your text.
Plus you can add links.
In addition you can play with colors, adjust transparency and choose your font style etc. I chose ‘Parisienne’ for this header.
To note that some of the images and illustrations are not free.
Next and final step: click on download and choose your format.
Congratulations on your mini achievement, I know it feels great right now after you have made your first header.
The website provides storage too which is great so you don’t have to upload your picture every time.
There is a lot more to do on Canva. Make collages, edit Instagram pictures and what not. Have fun exploring and let your imagination run wild 🙂
This is my current header which I absolutely love. You can have a perfect idea at the first glance what my blog is about.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post, thank you for dropping by.
