Accepted +Martin Shervington's #CanvaQuest Challenge to Share Canva Designs--Luckily I Already Did Some

+Martin Shervington gave me a #CanvaQuest challenge, and I accepted, because I'm a big fan of Canva!

However, I had no time to create something new, so I'm sharing an image I've already done: my mauilibrarian2 in Olinda blog header.

The header is  just the way I like it, celebrating Maui's many rainbows (symbolic of bright hopes and dreams), with a banner in my favorite color to complement the greenery, and an all-encompassing phrase that describes exactly what I do: 


"Curating, organizing, and testing the EDUverse ... with aloha.

Our school's library is on the left, and Cooper House, the original, foundational building of our campus is on the right. Again, symbolic.

I was so pleased with the design that I announced it on Google+:



I did a couple of other designs as well:



for a Google hangout, and



for a G+ school photo album.

I definitely will continue to explore Canva's capabilities. I'd like to create how-to infographics, posters, and whatever catches my fancy.

Luckily, summer is right around the corner and I'll have more time to play with Canva.

Of course, Canva is not my only design app of choice. I enjoy Google slide presentations, which is how I created this goodie to contribute to +Michelle Carlson Colte's "GAFE14 Take-aways" 6 Words 1 Pic" project, for the Google in Education Hawaii summit in March.

I also like Skitch and I combined it with PowerPoint to do this promo slide for our 6th graders' Shadow Box project display in the library:



I don't consider myself an artist by any stretch of the imagination. But I do like to try new things, and it's fun to have Canva in my editing toolbox!
