How to add blobs in Canva

Why use blobs?

Blobs are simple, seemingly random, and organic looking shapes. These simple shapes can add a surprising amount of variety and flair to a design. They are often used as a secondary element to support a primary part of the design. Using blobs is a super easy way to elevate your design from what could be a blank and boring canvas, to something more interesting and visually appealing to your viewers.
