Discover how to use Canva for great mockups and scenes
Canva is a great platform for DIY designers, and even professional designers who want to put together something quickly, or create designs for their clients to edit in Canva. Although Canva is great, it doesn’t have the same functionality as PhotoShop when it comes to mockups and created scenes. There are some workarounds and tips that will make using Canva for dynamic mockups and scenes easier. The purpose of these posts is to share those tips, as well any other helpful tricks I come across, so that you can get the most out of my mockups and improve your Canva skills at the same time.
Remember to use #madewithmockupscene when you share your designs so I can reshare them.
Did you know that you can use Canva to create your own stickers to use in IG stories? Maybe you’re asking why you’d want/need to do this? Mostly because it allows you to create customized stickers that align with your brand. Combining elements you use often in Canva and using your brand colors help you to stand out online.
Using a mockup to display your art is a quick and easy way to present it professionally for your website, online shop or social post to help increase your sales.
There are multiple ways to use mockups in your business, all of them beneficial. But you get ‘mockups’ and you get mockups. I’ve seen some terrible mockups that are clearly ‘home made’ – so before you even consider using a mockup for your products, make sure that they are high quality and are going to make your business look great, not the opposite.
Drop shadows go a long way to making a mockup look more realistic but they do need to be used correctly. One feature that Canva doesn’t have that PhotoShop does is the ability to create dynamic shadows.
Being able to resize your Canva designs is useful when you want to use the same design across multiple platforms. Maybe you’ve created an amazing Instagram post but now you want to use that same design for a Facebook banner.
