Trends for Winter CHA 2011


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.

I hope some of my assumptions are right, cause now I excited myself with them- LOL

    hmm, so so Home Decor……. das werd ich mir merken. nee, schärz! Absolutely with you with the banners. I don’t quite understand the craze, I’ve loved them for as long as I can think and don’t quite understand why they pop up EVERYWHERE. I like your outlook, and look forward to see what trends you foresaw will actually develop! :))

    Hi, Nathalie! I agree with you and I think mixed media will remain a major trend, because until now it only been growing. And this technique also helps in recycling, since it favors the mixing of materials.

    I think the vintage also comes with strength, combining with neutral materials you cited, as the printed book and music sheet papers.

    To help Brazilian scrappers find the releases, we’re running a blog just showing the CHA news.
