i'm still working on my blog updating the graphics, categories, and content. i really love the direction it is heading, reflecting really who i am. Back in 2010 i ran a feature called 5 favs that i adored. i sprinkled it through my blog & posts over the years but wanted to make it into something a little more. I finally honed into this revamped blog feature called Collective 5. This random blog feature will be still be sprinkled here & there and will range in a wide variety of topics. I want to kick of this revamp with a few "CHA" Collective 5 posts this week. Today's topic is TRENDS at the Create-n-Connect CHA summer trade show.
Cassette tapes are an emerging trend. i predict we are going to see more and more of these show up in all kinds of designs.
Navy seems to be appearing in lots of lines this show. i like how it's balanced with other colors from olives, oranges, and yellows.
Cameras & Frames have been hot for a while but it's a trend i don't see going away. They are showing up in everything from patterned papers to various embellishments.
Feathers are abundant this summer tradeshow. They appeared in the winter tradeshow and have multiplied since then. i personally am loving the feather trend.
More thoughts on Create-n-Connect CHA summer trade show coming up. Are there any trends you're noticing?
