I was asked what Trends I foresee for the Winter CHA 2011
Here are some of my throughts about the upcoming trends for CHA Winter 2011
Patterns: I think there will be two different styles coming up and those will be also presented by different colors. A very clean and minimalistic look but I also think we will see a lot of pattern mixes – kind of an ethnic mix and mash style. Flowers mixed with stripes and polka dots or Paisleys mixed with batik and circles etc.
Colors: As with the patterns I assume we will see two different color schemes. For the minimalistic and clean look I assume restrained and neutral colors, with lots of nuances and hues which can be mixed in a wonderful way. For the eclectic pattern mixes I think it will be a cosmopolitan color range – from dim dark colors to lively pink and red tones to earthy yet still prominent colors.

Techniques: Mixed Media Techniques will be still a huge trend. There will be new paints, new colors, new spray paint colors and new tools making it easy also for less technique driven Scrapbookers to use those paintmedia.

Material/Projects: Printed Book or Music Sheet paper- all kinds of things that have a natural look. One of the focuses I foresee for this CHA is how to enhance the Scrapbooking Products and use them in Homedecor items, recycle and reuse what you have.
I think we will see Banners still being a rage in all kinds of shapes.
