Nurturing Dreams and a Free Printable!

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about Crystal Stine's Creative Basics course and shared a few images I had been able to create with the very helpful information she shares in the course.

Well, the 30 day challenge is over, which means...I get to share a FREE printable with you today!

At first, I had no idea what my printable was going to look like. But as we got closer to the end of the month, and I started using the same fonts in Canva to create my quote images and realizing the message I wanted to share with my readers, it really just came together.

Earlier this week, Crystal had use create a new Facebook and Twitter cover photo. Honestly, I was quite happy with my cover photo. So with a little resistance to the assignment, I created this cover photo:

My new Facebook cover photo

This is one of my favorite photos from our Compassion trip to Mexico. I just love all the joy filled smiley faces of these children. Because of the local church and faithful sponsors, the dreams of these children are being nurtured.

Creating this cover photo helped to realize I could create a printable that I know people who care about children would love. So, here is a FREE printable for you:

Getting a bit creative

If you are following me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I have been sharing some quote images I have been creating using Canva. This is all part of an online course I am taking from Crystal Stine. This month, she has been sending out daily e-mails with an assignment for us to complete each day. The goal is that by the end of the month, we will be creating a printable to share with our own blog readers.

Since we are half way through the month, I wanted to share a couple of my favorites I have created so far:

I dwell in possibility - Emily Dickinson
It's kind of fun to do the impossible - Walt Disney
Wess Stafford quote

At the beginning of May, this Creative Basics course will be available as a Kindle book for anyone to work through at their own pace. So far, I am really enjoying the pace of this course and learning how to manipulate text within Canva to make visually appealing quote images. 

Are you hoping to create some awesome social media art? I encourage you to visit Crystal's web site and learn more about her upcoming book today!
