In this blog, I wanted to share the best free elements to use in Canva.
If you are an online Graphic Designer, and sometimes use Canva for your design, you will find this article useful!
Especially, if you are using Canva for FREE!
So, here are the best free elements to use in Canva.
FREE ELEMENT FILTER
So, the first thing you will need to do is to make sure you are using the “free” elements in Canva. So, you will have to activate the filter.
To do so, go into elements, and click on the adjustments close to the search bar.
Then, you will see availability Free or Pro.
So, select FREE.
1- ABSTRACT SHAPE
My number one favorite free elements are abstract shapes.
You can use those elements for so many designs.
So, add those abstract shapes behind texts or to the corners of your designs.
The frames are probably the most useful free elements in Canva!
So, you will add your frame to your design and then add whatever image to that frame! SO EASY!
If you are looking for a frame, in particular, you can search for frame + the word, like Frame phone or frame laptop.
3- WATERCOLOR LINE
So, those lines are the prettiest.
I am using those lines a lot to create YouTube Thumbnails and/or other Instagram posts.
Super colorful and joyful.
So, designs that look like they’ve been hand-made are so much more “attractive”. This is why I always try to add some kind of hand-drawn elements to my designs.
SHOP MY DIGITAL STICKERS
So, you don’t know how to draw or do calligraphy? NO problem! Use those Typography elements in your designs.
6- PNG IN PHOTOS
Here is the BEST trick.
Instead of going to elements, go into photos and search for “PNG” or “CUT OUT.
You will have access to so many “real” images for your designs.
So, those free elements are perfect to add some dimensions to your designs.
You can add texture and use the blending tool!
The last best free element to use in Canva is SKETCH.
Those elements are super aesthetic and simple.
So, it’s really easy to add to any kind of design.
